3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11th January 2010
Clear dark red-brown beer. Nice colour. A little Dr Pepper and Coca Cola on the nose! Light palate, slightly soft. Malt has a whisper of marmite but morphs seamlessly into something sweeter. Dr Pepper like generic fruits with a trace of bubblegum. Finishes smooth with creamy malt and a light smoke streak. Pretty complex flavour profile, the flavours integrating better as the beer warms up. Delicious!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at ÖÖWF 2011. Malty sweet smell with burned caramel, almost wineous. Milder taste but with a roasted finish. Very nice development on this beer, the 2011 tasted very differently.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Man in the Moon, December 2011.
Vintage 2007 was tastier than vintage 2004 that I drank earlier this week.
The beer was clear amber with a small, tan head. Nice aroma of toffee, roasted malt, raisin some licorice and spices. About the same in the rather sweet and vinous taste. Medium mouth feel and carbonation. Has aged really well in my opinion.
