3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well aged bottle. Toasted brown. Appealing aroma of aged malt, showing malt diversity and giving hints of buttery, caramel-like, toasted and burnt malt along with a touch of honey, chocolate and apples. Big, dry and chewy malt flavor (toasted bread with grape jelly) with notes of caramel, chocolate and fruit. Thanks Dr. Bill.

Bottled, alc. 8,8 % (BB 05/2005)
Ruby brown color, nice brownish head. and lots of lace. Fruity aroma with raisins and plums, even a bit roasted. Starts with attacking hops then full to medium body gives plum sweetness. Then finishes with alcoholic kick. Aftertaste is warming and slightly bittersweet. Interesting and complex but a bit unbalanced.
