2006 Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured reddish/brown color with large light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Very complex dark fruit, citrus, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Full complex sweet flavor with solid fruity sweet finish and a small bite of alcohol. Very good standout brew.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2006 bottle tasted July 2007. Very dark red-brown with a big, pillowy light brown head. Complex aroma filled with orange, cherry, figs, bubblegum, anise, nutmeg, cinnamon.
Sweet, fruity flavour with more than a hint of port, and some licorice and anise in the finish. It’s soft and velvet on the tongue, but the carbonation stings a little.
Long lasting malty aftertaste finishes this beauty perfectly.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Truly a nice beer. Very dark brown with limited brown head. Aroma is mostly sugary and caramel. It starts with smoky flavours that expands to malty sweetness and a touch of bitterness. Doesn’t feel vinious at any point.

"2006" bottle, best bf. apr 2010
aroma: aged beer, raisins, dark fruit.
when i opened the bottle, the beer really wanted to get out so some of it spilled to the floor. pours almost clear brown with a sizable nutty-brown head.
great taste, a little aged beer over this one, but just a little. dark fruits and spices. alc. not present. aftertaste is super, the fruits vaporiza slowly leaving a roasted note behind. best "aged beer" type i ever tasted. still, i don’t like this type.

Black, tan head. Sweet burnt malty bitter aroma, some marzipan too. Soft on the tongue. A bit alcoholic, though not punching at its full 10% by any means. Accompanying the burntness is some caramel and some bitter hints too. Finish is fairly burnt, but also soft.
