3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a descent head. The aroma is weird, and the association I get is a dirty, wet dog! The mouthfeel is semi-oily. The flavour is complex, the notes are earthy, basement, wet, dirty dog, raisins soaked in rum and port wine, myrtle, oak and tannic acid. A very "alternative" beer that is a challenge to the taste buds.

Wässriger, etwas oxidierter Beginn mit dezenten Malznoten. Süffig, insgesamt leider etwas langweilig. Besonders zum Ende deutlich wässrig, geringe Malzigkeit. 8/8/9/8/8/8

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is dark amber in color with a smallish khaki colored head.
S: A really nice nose on this one. Sweet caramel and toffee all the way through with a hint of vanilla. Toasted bread and molasses give an extra bit of maltiness. A rather simple aroma, but quite good.
T: There is a hint of booze, but otherwise it’s a rather nice combination caramel and toffee. Some more of the bread and toast character, but it is a touch watery at times. Maybe some brown sugar.
M: Medium in body with a low to medium level of carbonation.
O: Overall pretty nice. A bit simple to me, but I liked what it had to offer.

Bought in 1985 and hidden in my cellar all those years. Alc % on the label: 6%. Overwhelming porto aroma. Carbonation has almost disappeared. Porto taste with blackcurrant, raisins and pure chocolate. A bit metallic and buttery aftertaste. A very special beer that has survived 17 years of storage under less than ideal circumstances well.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled, Filtered, 330ml, aged 4.5yrs. Ruby to brown with beige head. What a beautiful looking beer, it has the appearance of a rich burgundy, but with a head. It is smooth, the ageing has worked particularly well, fusing the parts into one luscious, rounded, full beer. There is a blackcurrant and winey raisin note to it, warming in the alcohol, there is a sweetness on the finish. Very, very good
