Bottled, 330ml aged 4yrs. Dark brown with off white head. I find these bottles difficult to pour as you always get the bits. Solid, dark ale, caramel with hints of spiciness and a wine like flavour, quite sweetish still after the cellaring. Pretty reasonable. djd07 (14496) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2007
