550 ml bottle @ the Grand Vintage Tasting, Tampere. Thanks rosenbergh. Pours a copper brown colour with a small thick head. Aroma is rather interesting; toasted malts, biscuit and dark fruitiness. Flavour is rather rich with toasted malts, wood, dark chocolate, blackberries, some raisins and vanilla. Full bodied with a nice velvety mouthfeel and soft carbonation. It’s 15 years old and it’s in an excellent shape. The older it is, the better it is. If you have a vintage ale older than this, it’s better than this. Remember that.

Clear honey red with a nice head, even after 14 years :) . Aroma of fruit, heavy syrup, vinous, sweet, alcoholic, tobacco, vanilla, lots of oxidation - but well melded with the rest of the aroma.

Sweet, liquoricey (not over powering), very drinkable ale. Surprisingly smooth for the ABV. Could drink a lot of this if it wasn't for the price!
