dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, - OCT 25, 2004
No carbonation, no head, cloudy dull brown colour. Plum/raisin/sider aroma, quite sweet. Flavours much the same, cloying, alcohol bite - virtually undrinkable. Must have been a dodgy bottle, looking at the rest of the ratings...

Bottle @Pikkulintu (thanks mjs & FatPhil). 2002 vintage. Dark ruby red color. Small size, tan-beige head, stays. Raisins, plums/prunes, sweetish, woody in aroma. Absolutely lovely aroma. Raisins, woody, toffee, caramel, red wine, grapes in taste. Red wine and twigs overshadowed by plums in aftertaste. This has aged very well. Fantastic brew.

minutemat (4272) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
275ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Bottle Share, Aug 15, many thanks to Mike! Rich, uber-slick, smooth flavours with dried dark fruits sliding out of the syrupy gloss. Remarkably well-preserved given the dust-bombs we’ve opened from this box before.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2015
19th Aug 2015, Shrewsbury Bottle Share meeting. 275ml corked bottle, cellar aged since birth. Lovely smooth tasting brew with a sweet sherry like taste and aroma. Red/orange colour with a wisp for a head. Would have liked a larger sample (5 of us), but I had enough to know it is still a top class beer and one I would gladly pay some heavy dosh for.
