2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle vintage 2004 @ Plan B [Courtesy of thewolf, thanks buddy!] Average beige head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Clear light brown color. Dried fruit, caramel, spice. René and I agreed that it was a bit oxidized. I guess this bottle could note preserve the beer. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet flavor. Light spicy sweet and fruity finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Mes rate:
50cl bottle at home. Nice chestnut brown colour but with a complete lack of head and a watery and bubbly consistency. Looks very much like some sort of soda. Nose of bread and malt and very little else. Flavour is marginally better but only by a cigarette paper. Slight caramel notes and a lite more of the bread and malt noted in the aroma. Pretty poor to be honest.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper-brown with a small, fast-disappearing off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with notes of cloves, nuts and wood. Flavour is sweetish and malty with notes of cloves and raisins. Feels a bit thin. Finish is sweetish with a lingering mild bitterness and notes of cloves and grass. Slightly cloying in the long run. A bit too much carbonation. 10-03-07.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of boiled candy, diacetyl and stale crystal malt. Suprisingly thin body, flavours of mildly toasted malts, candy and more diacetyl. Also carries some of the staleness from the aroma, definitly tastes like suspect malts. The finish is nearing watery but is otherwise OK.
