Aromas dominated by malt: bread and molasses. A little bit of raisin.
Small off-white head, hazy body, dark brown beer.
Moderate to heavy sweetness; bitterness is subdued.
Full bodied, medium to heavy alcohol, long finish with the malt flavors.
Overall a fairly good beer; I like the full body, medium sweetness and touch of raisin flavors.

12 oz bottle shared with Jason and Brian. The pour is a medium dark amber, a light brown, with a thin collar of surprising carbonation for a beer this old. The nose is pretty oxidized. there is a good maltiness and a light sweetness. Light cherry carries it through the back end. The flavor mimics this. There is a little dried leather and a strong malt. It's nicely sweet and has held up well. The mouth feel is a little thin. This was expected to be thin, having been bottled 15 years ago. The aftertaste is lingeringly sweet. This is held up well. Not bad.

Draft to taster at the Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a fairly transparent dark amberish brown with thin very light beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes smokey and malty and toasty with notes of chocolate and caramel. The smoke is stronger on the nose than the tongue, but is present inn both. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Solid, but a taster is plenty.
