12oz bottle from a trade from way too long ago....pours a slightly transparent amber brown with a thin and quickly dissipating white head.... bready caramel malts and dark fruits make up the nose.... flavors of dark fruit and bready malt somewhat tart, and finishes with a slightly boozy bitter finish. carbonation has certainly help up over the years. pretty lively and thin to medium mouthfeel. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Thanks Joel! The beer pours to a glowing dark amber body. Clean on first pour, hazy and murky further through the bottle. The aroma is earthy, twigs, stewed apples, barleywine characteristics. Light mint. The flavor has really held up well. It’s earthy, woodsy, cinnamon, barleywine-ish. Herbs. The palate is rich, not oxidized at all, concentrated feel. Great! Such a delight to try! Bring it back Larry! puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Musky, old, dusty nothing. If this was something at some point, it’s certainly not anymore. Heavily oxidized, lightly metallic. A touch of caramel, maybe. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Another tasty treat from those wack jobs at Bell’s. This stuff is simply amazing with flavors of caramel, toasted grains and dried fruits. Slightly oxidized but very good. kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Courtesy of artusory (from Walleye). Fluffy head, decent retention. Orange appearance with a reddish core; think sunset. Candy sugar, orange peel on the nose. Slightly oxidized, but still magical. Malt and orange in the mouth, viscous, with a completely unexpected finish of chocolate and maple syrup. A surprising, layered strong ale.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2005 Many thanks to walleye for parting with a bottle of this rarity! Murky orange-brown body with lots of yeast sediment, thin light cream head. Caramely, toasty aroma with subtle remnant hops, a bit oxidized. Mellow, full caramel and toast malty flavor with light buttery notes and hints of earthy hops, but these were mostly faded. Nice, tight carbonation for a five year-old beer. Still solid after all this time. hallinghansen (3192) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
Tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration, 2016. Clear amber body with a medium offwhite head. Malt, caramel, spicy, vanilla, caramel, spicy, bubble gum. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Bottle from trade with walleye. Thanks Jim. Hazy amber body with a small off-white head. The aroma is a wonderful example of how oxidation can benefit a beer. Lightly oxidatized malts with nuts and caramel. The flavor is toffee, nuts, touch of chocolate and roast at the end. Just a touch of acidity. The mouthfeel is very soft, light and smooth.

Fat på CBC-2016. Smak och doft av choklad, karamell, torkad frukt, brunt socker med toner av marsipan. Lätt kropp, fin strong ale med fin sötma och bra balans. Gott! DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2005
Aroma is a rich malt, and I find there is still some hops here. Muddy brown, with a tiny tan head. Flavour is a full malt, with caramel and butterscotch. Medium bodied, sweet, mellow, lovely mouthfeel. Terrific!
Thank You radiomgb.
