3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks SÝren.
Had this after 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005
Pours light hazy amber with a small, creamy, off-white film head. Aroma is sweet, malty, light metallic with some herbal hops. Medium carbonation, nice dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a little sharp, fine malty caramel, vinious and a light spicy hoppiness. Feels a bit sharp, but still a good drink.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy peachy-golden with a nice cap of beige head. The aroma was most certainly delightful.. warm, lightly aged toffee, sourdough bread, and a blend of redder fruits accented by black pepper, blood oranges, and earth.. balance was spot-on, and there was just enough warmth to really make the character pop. The flavor opened with a little of the orange and peppery spice, backed quickly by sweet toffee and bready notes.. spicy on the back-end with increasing warmth.. fruity notes and a toasty, peppery yeast rounded it out well on the finish. Medium-bodied with relatively low carbonation on the palate.. well-balanced and engaging the whole way through.. it was really hard to find anything wrong with this.

At a tasting, many many thanks Zvikar, almost no head, amber to deep red colour and a little hazy, aromas of dates, figs, some oxidised notes and hints of Pedro Ximenez sweet sherry. Flavours of figs, mollases, prune brandy, demerera sugar, dried apricot, raisins and fermented soya beans, with a touch of alcohol making its presence felt, body is big but certainly not heavy, long and exquisite sweet and sour aftertaste. A great beer to sip leisurlly.
