COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Infinitely complex in aroma and flavor with notes of maltiness and tartness throughout. An unsurpassed old brown with the richness and complexity of a vintage wine.

tectactoe (2882) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle: 2000 vintage, 14 years old. Big thanks to Mike. Cloudy copper with a very slight, gray foamy collar; really nice to see *any* sign of carbonation after this long. Aroma of caramel & toffee malts, faint papery oxidation, prune, timid vinous notes, & a moderate lacto-like tartness. Nice lemon bite on the palate up front; more tart than the nose indicated but still not overly sour. Light caramel malt sweetness for balance. Slightly tart prune & currant. Faint vinous grape with a touch of musty Belgian yeast in the finish. Oxidation has gotten a little cardboard in there, but still not so much considering the age. Perhaps over the hill just a bit, but still really fun to try.

esox (1164) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottled. Dark brown with reddish hue. Creamy beige head, nice lace. Acidic raspberry aroma, sherry, loads of sweet dried fruits, vanilla and light toasted oak and candi sugar in the aroma. Maybe a hint of chocolate. Sweetish flavor at first with some syrupy sugar and acidic berries. Yeasty, slightly okay finish with fermented berry flavor. A hint of sourness when yeast are poured. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Andy_ (860) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2014
375 ml bottle.
Clear ruby reddish brown beer with beige to light brown head. Aroma has sour appleish Belgian yeast, cherries, toffeey sweetness, cinnamony spiciness and berryish light tartness. Flavor is apple juicy sour with burned sugary sweetness, cherries, wood and berryish tartness. Palate is thick with medium carbonation. Finish has mild but long bitterness with feel and heat of alcohol. An enjoyable oud bruin, not too vinegary sour.

bastarda (147) - Freiburg, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2014
warm aromas of beef broth, sherry, balsamico, caramel, almonds under a tender haze of tartness. Wonderful mouthfeel with flavours of beautifully decomposing sour cherries, balsamico again, carried by a warm, malty undercurrent. Wow!

dagimp (777) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2014
750 poured into a wine glass. Pours a very dark brown or purple. Lots of thick white head and lacing. Nice tart grape and lemon aroma with mild raspberries. Mouthfeel is very rich, luxurious and decadent. Taste is berries, grapes, tart cherries and wine. Very good beer but not quite a start as I like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ctiry (116) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 28, 2014
Brown colour with off-white thin head. Lot of aroma. Like porto wine, dark fruits, vinegar. Full complex taste. Taste more like wine than beer. Little sour for me.
