3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Alcohol interferes with aroma -meaning, I guess, that I don’t detect anything strongly. Dark ruby brown color. Flavor is malt, accompanied by unassignable fruit. A bit sweet, but that’s expected. The malt overpowers the hops at the finish. Very drinkable, but perhaps a bit of citrus would balance things.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(2002 bottle) The age didn’t affect the carbonation -- a gusher upon opening. Heck, after losing about 4 oz. and pouring another 4 into the glass, the foam in the bottle STILL made its way back to the top, ready to resume streaming down the side. Red brown body topped by a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet, brown sugar, herbal, prune, coriander. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, coriander, toffee, herbal, some orange peel, dark fruit. Finish is dominated by moderately strong alcohol. Full, moderately sticky body.
