Beautiful amber color. Strong honey aroma, some alcohol. More hoppy than the 1999 version (tasted the same day). Long, bitter final.
Botella. Pours an unclear red-amber colour. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and some toffee. Good soft mouthfeel. The flavour is sweet with toasted malt, a bit of chocolate, some dark fruits, some port and a little alcohol. A good well balanced brew. dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2008

Dry raisiny and nutty aroma. Pleasant carbonation. Yeast mellows the taste we found - so do add some. Very dry malty body. Hops again dry and biting. Lovely raisins in the finish. Beautiful sipper.
Bottle that Peter Fowler, Shoulder of Mutton kindly shared at tasting at his pub 28.04.11 Pours reddy amber, looks good. Touch of tobacco on nose along with some dried citrus and a dab of spice. Tasty beer really full bodied, however possibbly a bit too much toffee for me, though there is some vanilla and a little nuttiness in there. Extremely likeable but not a patch on the 1999 that we also tried. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8 Geokkjer (7642) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012

Sample during tasting @ Ölrepubliken. Pours hazy amber with no head worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, alcohol, toffee, rubber, lemon zest, overripe plums, raisins, sweet dark bread, cherries in liqueur, moist soil and hints of leather and cardboard. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, alcohol, leather, orange zest, moist wood, grass, vanilla fudge and leather. Mouthfeel is round, oily bitter, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, bitter and tiny sour with caramel, lemon fudge, wood, leather and grass. Very nice but would probably have been even better about 2 years ago... Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Poured from a 550ml bottle, thanks to Doug. Big toffee and fruity nose. Flavors of leather, toffee, coffee, caramel. A tasty beer that has held up well.
