Dark amber color, small but lasting head. Fairly complex aroma: hezalnuts, hops. Full bodied, buttery and oily. Warming alcohol. A firm hopbitter flavor, walnuts. Just a touch of wood. I canít taste any fruit. There is some sharpness that will probably ease down over the years. Oaky bitter afteratste. Good quality beer that needs some cellaring.

Bottled. Have decided to drink these vintage ales around their 3 years birthday, and it seems to be a good idea. Dark reddish brown coloured. Unclear. Dense brown head. Prunes, light alcohol, light caramel and some liqourice in the aroma. Flavour is Nutty, has prunes, apple, vanilla, light chocolate and some other ripe fruits. Very smooth and rich. Full bodied. Dry. Is fruity and light sweet with a touch of alcohol on the palate in the end. Very nice. Enjoyed on my patio watchin the sunset over Bangalore, which off course dosnít make the experience less delightful.
