Bottle. [thank you, after4ever]
[vintage 2006]
Pours clear, dark amber with a great, large, creamy, beige head. Impressive hoppy aroma for a vintage, pine, grapefruit, caramel, blackberries, some oak. Low carbonation, fine creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very sweet at first, some berries, nuts, orange and caramel. Very bitter with lots of hops before a very dry finish sets in with lots of oak and dryness. Extremely dry finish, but very nice and enjoyable.

12 oz bottle -pours a rich tan head that laces and crimson color. Aroma is medium/dark malt-sweet, fruity/woody hops. Taste is vanilla, medium/dark malt-sweet, fruity/woody hops-some earthiness. Occasional. OK/mild carbonation.

imdownthepub (11147) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Thick dark brown with no head. Heavy, sugary, sweet toffee like, chocolatey beer. Totally flat unfortunately and cloying. Some fruitiness in the close, but I couldn’t really get on with this.

Pinball (11072) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2010
clear brown, smooth light brown head. very very nice aroma of hops, caramel, malts, perfectly balanced, notes of oak too. balance is extremely good, and on top of the goodness a little woody winey note plays with my nose. fantastic. flavor is wood, mals, caramel, hops in the background, very well balanced again, and seems to be very full bodied, even though it is also tempered and not overly strong. bitterness is very high. again a flavor of wood and wine sort of on top of all the other flavors. sort of brown ale’ish, but bewed with great delicate finesse and quite some strength. Excellent beer

bierkoning (10879) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle from dkachur, thanks Dan! Brown color, off-white foamy head. Raisin and peach in the aroma, not much oak. Grapefruity hopbitter flavor with oak, raisin, mango and red berries. Considerable dry out effect. Firm oily, raisinny aftertaste with some oily hops. Not as assertive as the painted bottle promises, it is much too fruity for that.

Reddish dark amber with a thick off white head. Aged maderized malt with wood chips notes, and vanilla beans. In mouth, light smooth hops with light butterscotch notes. Rich and smooth. At EBF 2006.
