Cloudy, deep brown beer, little head. Aroma raisin, roasted barley and malt. Taste raisin, anise, vanilla, caramel. Palate pretty good for the age, carbonation subdued. skortila (5793) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Bottled. Aroma has rasisin, caramel, some chocolate. Red-brown coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is soft sweet, has raisin, some grain, caramel, little fruity touch, bit chocolate. Medium-full, creamy mouthfeel. Nice. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Thanks to Dice for sharing this 750ml bottle at a tasting last night. Pour is very slightly murky brown amber. Slightly oxidized but remarkably well aged. Loads of candied caramelized sugar, toffee, molasses, layered over plum and fig. Rather sweet, but the oxidation is well-placed and dries this out just enough for everything to gel. Lovely, and so much better than I expected.

750mL bottle shared by bitbucket. Held up remarkably well. No need for too much description but mild cardboard, alcohol present and accentuated by the cardboard. Light sweetness. Thick body with lower carbonation. No way I would guess close to a decade on this. tcon25 (819) - Duvall, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle pour at Bottle share, so glad to try this one thank you. Very dark amber pour, fruit plum aroma, nice flavor this one held up nicely. Fruit taste plum, raisin, not a lot of carb but that’s from the age. Good beer andrewje41 (3741) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2015
750 mL bottle shared at a tasting. Pours a dark brown color with a lasting fizz head. Boozy caramel malt, and raisin aroma. Strong beer, and it definitely shows. A bit of graham cracker and cookie malt. Finishes on some dates and other dark fruit. Good beer. Glad I tried this. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2013
750mL bottle. Poured mahogany with a toasted beige head. The aroma picked up slightly tart, spiced dark fruits and raisins with peppery accents and slight oxidation. The flavor found similar, with molasses, fruit, and licorice leading.. dry and a bit woody on the spicy finish. Heavier-bodied withmoderate carbonation. Definitely older, but it held up well.

Bottle at Brouwer’s cafe. Murky brown. Just amazing amount of dark fruit and banana in the nose and flavor. This has aged amaingly well, fantastic beer.
