Bottled vintage 1994
Thanks Raipe! Aroma of raisins, mämmi, sherry. Medium-bodied. Aged very well. Mämmi, raisins, licorice, dark malts in the flavor. Portwineous. Of course now quite watery, but aged well!

Pinball (12944) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008
aroma is quite strong, but i have a har dtime figuring what it is. probably due to aging. flavor is mostly caramel, dark fruits, nice hops, sugar. palate is a little too watery overall interesting and quite tasty.

Marsiblursi (3075) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 20, 2008
(Bottle from 1989) Pours dark brown. The aroma is “old” smelling with port/vinous tones of brown sugar, raisins, soy and dark bread. A smooth roast profile of dark chocolate is also present. The flavour is of chocolate, mild coffee, dark fruits, dark berries and some milky tones. The mouthfeel is watery but surprisingly clean. Lingering aftertaste of dark bread and coffee. Light bodied.

Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2008
1996 vintage complete with its bottle opener courtesy of omhper. Pours a dark brown with almost no carbonation to speak of. Only a handful of sparse white bubbles dot the glass. Smells of dark fruit, caramel, some roasted malt lots of oaky hints. Tastes of dark fruit, completely flat carbonation wise with only some tingly hints on the tongue which is no surprise on a 12 year old bottle, lots of sweet malt, some cherries. This is a 5.5% beer that is 12 years old? Impressive!

larsniclas (7980) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2008
Bottled. Vintage 1989. Dark, muddy brown. Small, bubbly head. Slightly vinous aroma from sweet fruits; raisins, prune. A bit thin body with almost no carbonation. Raisins and chocolate in the flavour, and some burnt sugar.
