500ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a cloudy dark copper amber. Nose presents evidence of oxidation, but some dark fruits and caramel linger about. Flavour is also oxidized, however some nice caramel sugars going on, dark fruits, and a malty semi sweet body. I’ve tried newer versions of this and I think I have enjoyed this one more so.

500mL bottle, pours a murky cloudy dark amber brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of cardboard, dark dried fruits, slight tartness, and bready caramel. Flavour is quite oxidized, but in a good way, with tart dark fruits, bready malt, and cardboardy oxidation. Oxidized, but pleasantly so. Solid stuff. OminouSC2 (901) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2016
Tasted 2014. Golden/amber color. Aroma is a lot of ripe fruits ready to be plucked from the tree. Sweet taste with dark fruits, plums, apricote and some yeast. Low carbonation probably due to the age. Smooth finish with just a hint of alcohol. Rasmus40 (21990) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2016
