4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice beige head. Aroma is big on raisin and port wine--must be an older bottle. Taste really reflects the aging as well, with lots more raisin, dark fruits (plum and blackberry in particular), mild bitterness, and barley at the end. Surprisingly, virtually no cardboard. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, long finish. Overall, I didn’t have high hopes, so this was a nice surprise. Not sure what they were going for when it was fresh, but this has aged very nicely, and I really enjoyed it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a nice dark orange-brown with tall, but falling, beige head. The aroma is rich toffee and raisin with a little bit of anise, clove, maraschino, and bran muffins. The flavor is toffee, pine nuts, raisin bran, and a bit of leather. There is a bit of dusty yeast, earthy hops, and slight alcohol as it moves through the mouth. It finishes with wood and caramel and leaves a lingering warmth. Pretty good stuff.
