Bottled. An unclear amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with a light touch of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of over ripe fruits, leading to a dry finish where the fruity note carries thru. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2007
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.

beastiefan2k (2525) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2007
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.

JK (4604) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2007
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.
