Bottle@Himmeriget, Copenhagen (29/07/2016) - Amber pour with almost no head. Aroma and taste is very sweet malty, rather oxidised, light vinegar, dried fruit, brown sugar, as it is now its just about OK, but would of loved to try this some years back.

2nd go. The first bottle was a big fail.
It pours a hazy orange w with no foam and, duh, no lacing.
Age has taken an obvious toll on the beer’s smell and I’m sure taste. Smell is of vinegar, which isn’t so bad, but there’s a chemical like aroma that is very off putting.
Taste IS better. Loaded with the vinegar sourness, gots some soy, and way way deep in the background, the slightest hint of what this may have tasted like. ..an Old Ale?
Light bodied with "some" carbonation.
I fully blame the crumbly cork for not protecting the contents. :^(

bottle @ Sergio’s / Louisville KY --- Garnet color, no head, no lace. Very still brew. Taste is sugary malt that includes dark dried fruit and earthy biscuit as it moves through the palate to a finish that is mostly alcohol. I’m certain the fact that this was brewed in 2001 puts a damper on its condition today. Fair, not in any way recommendable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of the Cubes. Sweet nose with tons of sherry and a little weird marmite. Sherry persists in the first sip. Abundant raisin as well as some apple/pear. A strange leather like flavor appears upon exhalation. Relatively full mouthfeel with no carbonation. Leaves kind of a slick on the palate. An interesting, strange beer. I’d be interested to have tasted it 7 years ago or so.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks zvikar. Bad cork, broke while opening the bottle. Hazy dark orange. Aroma of vinegar and fruits. Sourish flavor with vinegar, fruits and light sweetness. Medium-bodied, kinda flat. Didn’t age very well - infected. Still not that bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased at Monument in Concord, CA. Another fucking broken cork. The aroma is crazy vinous. Smells like the altar wine that the priest used to drink. Some light cardboardy oxidized notes, too. Sweet with toffee. What I would expect a 13 year old beer to smell like. Transparent amber body with no head. Flat and uncarbonated. Starts a little thin and watery, before some light caramel and light roasted malts come through. Some sherry with a lot of cardboard oxidation is also present. Ethanol is hidden really well. A really oxidized, flat, lifeless beer, which is exactly what I expected. This is more enjoyable than the Old Ale, though.
