Bottle from 2009 opened in Dec 2014. I’m not familiar with any of the source beers from this blend but it certainly has held up well. Plenty of carbonation (not a gusher though) and a smooth, tasty mixture. I pick up licorice, brown sugar, toffee/caramel. Really fortunate to get this in the EU Secret Santa last year!

Timvim (110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle @ home 20140828. Black opaque with a small brown head, low-medium carbonation. Aroma of licorice, tobacco, raisins, plums, rum, vanilla, cherries. Taste is plums, raisins, vanilla, figs, burnt tobacco (almost lika a cigar), almonds. Very rich and complex. Very nice, although a little bit too much on the burnt side for me.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, 180ml. A dark reddish brown beer, lightly unclear, and with some beige bubbles on top. The aroma has roasted malts, coffee and dried fruits, with some vinous raisin notes. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Pretty vinous flavor too, with chocolate, raisins and some coffee notes. Lasting vinous finish. Pretty lovely this one. 140418

Cunningham (4929) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 5, 2014
Appearance: Black color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: Dark malt, fruit, chocolate and mild oak.
Palate: Medium + body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Dark malt, chocolate, coffee, mild oak and fruity.
Overall impression: Would have expected more from this blend. Unusual thin body for an ale at 10%abv. Well masked alcohol. Anyway a nice tasty impy.
