DavidWoodruff (387) - Windsor, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Dark Brown with a monstrous beige head - even when poured slowly and with tilted glass. Malty, nutty aroma with a hint of marzipan. Sweet, raw almond flavor with some toffee. Long malty, semi-dry finish. Very nice if not particularly complex.

Aroma is quite light with some brown sugar and ripe fruits. Flavour is sugary sweet with some ripe fruits and hints of brown sugar. Also hints of metal on some sips. Woody and leathery palate. Too sweet and feels a bit watery too.

Cantabrian (762) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 29, 2013
Uneventful. Watery, needs more body, more character. Just a vague reminder of fruits in an old cellar, with too much straw. I wish I had more dates (!)
