Aroma has malty notes typical to old beers. Also raisins and hints of cardboard. Flavour is rather malty with some metallic savor, some raisins and hints of metal. Quite well preserved, even though the taste is a bit short.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium amber beer - lively at first, but the fizzy head sinks to a small lace - aroma of toffee, toasty maltiness, moderate esters, candied citrus, dusty/cobweb yeast notes - moderate carbonation in the mouth - light to medium bodied - flavor is fairly sweet (candied fruit, toffee, baked apples), but with balancing notes of hops (bitterness, floral notes), earthy, dusty yeast, and some spice/warmth on the tail end - finish of toasted malts and lightly caramelized sugars, but with a light balancing tartness - another subtle but delicious beer from this brewery.

Bottle: The aroma is fruit (plum and grape) and candi sugar. It pours a hazy, bordering on cloudy, amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film. The flavor has lots of grape and plum. There is some faint tartness in the background. The finish has some light caramel and the faintest hint of spice. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation.
