3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle sampled at RBSG. From notes. Spicy and sugary. No hops or pepper, probably faded out a while ago. Still a great beer, and stoked to have the opportunity to try it.

Medium brown with a creamy head. Belgian spice and chocolate aromas. Strong spice, toasted malt, and caramel flavors finish dry.

Bottle at RBSG. Pour was brown, pretty malty, no carbonation. Not bad, but the age definitely affected this.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at RBSG. Poured orange little hazy soft white head that left faint thin film. Aroma has some fruity yet vegetable and oxidized malt/yeast. Taste was more the same with some hidden fruit character. Palate slick and dry.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bomber at RBSG. Too damn old. Vegetable soup all over this beer. Not as good, I’m sure, as in it’s prime.

Shared at RBSG - malty nose, oxidized a bit? Pretty flat, a bit sweet and still has some interesting character. Cool to try after 10 years.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by skinnyguy! Clear brown pour, nice little ring of carbonation and an aroma of slightly spicy dark cherry and scotchy malt. Flavor is slightly peppery, heavy caramel and a little herbal fruit. Holding up nicely for being 10 years old!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Belmont bottle enjoyed on Harper’s first night home; 10 years old now. Obscene that I got this bottle for $10 about 6 months ago. This has really held up well. It was obviously a touch thin but it also seemed a bit tinny and metallic. Very nice for 10 years later but if you have a bottle I wouldn’t wait any longer. Rating it without holding age against it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vertical epic tasting with a light brown pour. Musty and sweet with some malt forward and sugary spicy bite. Ok for being this aged.

Bottle shared by Tim, thanks! Pours a cloudy amber with a tan head that starts at the edges and remains. Aroma has musty, dusty grains with a bit of sweetness. Flavor starts with sweet light grains and finishes with musty grains and dust.
