[Aged 4 years] Poured a hazy, red amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of madeira, tobacco, light citrus, and orange peel. Taste of sherry, citrus fruits, vanilla, caramel malts, with pine, a bit of cardboard, grassy hops, more, tobacco, and light alcohol in the finish.

dillinja (24) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Tapped at Southern Sun. I’m feelin this flavor, some hops with real toasty malts and a decent alcohol presence. Strong but clean. Sweeter than my usual tastes but with enough spine to hold it up.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2005
An unclear brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty, while the flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of roasted malt and alcohol, leading to a dry end. The body is nice.

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 8, 2003
I thought this beer was "ashy," somewhat harsh, and a little unbalanced. Big, smoky flavors seemed to rule. The palate was spikey (carbonation and alcohol) on the top and a little watery underneath. Finished with a cabbage-like off-flavor I wasn't too fond of. I didn't find it quite as bad as I'm describing it, but I'm focusing on the negatives I found. This beer could be much better after laying down a while.
