4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber with a lasting off-white head. Rich aroma of raisins. tangerine, prunes and toffee. Flavour is sweet, rich and complex, with dried fruits, licorice, alcohol and a little hop bitterness. Smooth and full mouthfeel, and very easy to drink despite the fruity sweetness - all in all, a wonderful botteld dessert.

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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle No. 70846. Rich roasted malt aroma with fruit/berry overtones. Dark amber color with a voluminous beige/tan head. Medium to full in body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is roasted malt, a fair amount of heat, darkish fruit with wood notes. Vinous. Suggestive of oak aged sherry - well aged. The finish is fairly dry, balanced with bitter. The whole thing runs a gamut from fruit to malt and back. Just outstanding.

Bottle #83433. Poured clear deep amber with a huge frothy light brown head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Good well balanced hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Good well balanced flavor with a heavy balanced and small alcohol tone finish of moderate duration. Very good brew that should age well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper red with a nice head. The aroma has fruity notes, mostly orange, and a bit of alcohol. The flavour also has notes of alcohol, malt, fruit and a lot of citrus, mostly orange peel, in the long finish. Itís still only November 2006, so itís a shame to drink it now, but I have one more in my cellar, that Iíll enjoy in some years.
