4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 hazy brown with white head. A bit of fruits and caramel. A lighter version than the 8 or 10. This doesnt make it boring though. Plum, raisin & caramel. It still has the long lasting taste and finish. Great!
Rerating June - 09. Vintage 2005 bottle. Wauw - aroma is off the chain - (again). Smooth, dried fruits, delicious liquorice. 4 Again - But closer to 4,1 than expected.
Re-rate. 31 Dec - 2012. Vinous, Rich and warming. Still has the yeast complexity that the 8 & 10 has. Great stuff..:-) 4 again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2009 Bottled. Amber colored beer with a large beige head. Nice aromas with malt, candi-sweetness and citrus. The flavor has dried fruit, hops and some alcohol. Full, sweet body. A nice beer. Rating: 7-4-8-4-15-3.8. 060328
Bottle, BB 191113. The pour results in a massive creamy off-white to beige head with good retention. The dark, orangey brown body is unclear, and has some sediments. The first aroma to escape the glass is a cellary, slightly yeasty one, soon followed by dried fruits, some roasted malts and hints of alcohol. Prunes and rum raisin also comes to mind. Itís a bit thin on the palate for a beer of this strenght, feeling sort of hollow in the mouth. Lightly roasted, chocolatey malts, alcohol notes, raisins, hoppy bitterness and a cellary touch in the flavor. The warming finish has a good blend of bitterness and chocolatey, roasted malts. A lovely beer, both lacking something and with something too much considering its strenght. Still, wonít shy away from it in the future. 090904

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle, best before 11/03/09. Pours a hazy mahogany with a moderate beige head. Aroma of graham crackers, figs, raisins, brown sugar, and some alcohol. Taste follows the aroma, though the taste is milder than I wouldíve thought. Smooth on the palate, medium to high carbonation. Was hoping for a little more with this one--not that itís a bad beer by any means, but not spectacular.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bott. Garnet brown with excitable off white head. Little brown chunks in the bottom. Smells of coriander soda and wild roots. Tastes of sweet molasses coariander, a little burnt malt, sugary. Refreshing and fairly flavorful. Palate is of soda, a mite thicker and more flavorful.

"MMMMMM Poured a hazy brown color with a nice head some sediment. Aroma was malty. Flavor was solid, malty with a hint of alcohol not not overwelming. Nice beer."

Bottle. Nice brown color with dissapearing off-white head. Now this is a very very good beer. But I canít help but thinking (when Iím drinking it) that it tastes like number 10 but with water added - sorry :-)
