3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy boboski. 2005. Amber pour topped by a small, creamy, tan cap. Nose is a little off- musty, vegetal, rich caramel, subtle cocoa, airy yeast. Flavor is much better- toasted caramel/toffee, cocoa powder, dried and fresh dark fruit, bready malt, and a light dose of dry, airy yeast. Full body, balanced carbonation. Excepting the aroma, a solid brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from akorsak, traded and consumed at BCTC. 2002 vintage. Murky, orange-ish brown pour with a small head. Strong aroma of thick toasty raison alcohol with some alcohol presence. Some age shown in kind of a muskiness of baked maltiness. Sweet all around. Aeneas says phenolic but I can’t tell. A thick mouthfeel but would never guess it was 5 years old.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
More like a barleywine than an old ale. Sweet malt aroma that fits, but absent any alcohol. Sugar in the flavor, light fruit. A little too sweet for the style. Dark brown and very low carbonation.
