Bottle at Casparís Running Toilet Tasting. Pours amber-red with w foamy, white head. Rich, dark and ripe fruits on the nose, some subtle caramel. Medium sweet flavor, light alcohol notes, cake, fruits, toffee. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm finish, lightly dulled alcohol edge, modest toffee.

Cask at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007Rasmus40 (20393) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2016
Beautiful amber color; still. The aroma is simple. The mouthfeel is strong, with some good sweet malt, a bit oily, but nothing special. A bit warming. Powerful but not impressive.
A bottle is awaiting in the cellar, for better days...
Bottle from Best of Beers. Clear red brown with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dried fruit and light oxidized. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 260416 Koelschtrinker (20242) - KŲln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 12, 2013
WŁrziger Beginn, leicht honigartig. WŁrzig, rund, geringe SŁŖe. Schmeckbarer aber eher unwichtiger Hopfen. Rundes, zum Ende etwas trockenes Bier. 11/12/12/12/12/12 Theydon_Bois (19200) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle split with JF at a Sueís away mini tasting in the íSham, 11/03/14, massive thanks to Fin for digging this one out for me #85518.
Lightly hazed amber with a good sized off white covering that eventually thins to a swirl.
Nose is figgy jam, dark fruit mash up, demerera sugars, tobacco, light sherry notes.
Taste comprises prunes, dates, fruit cake, leather armchair, candied sugars, caramel fudge, hint sherrification.
Medium + bodiment, fine carbonation, sweetish closure.
Solid stuff and still holding up well at 7 years although not the best vintage Iíve sampled.

(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Cask. Golden/amber color, small head. Yeasty, malty fruity aroma with raisins and some figs. Vinous malty flavor, raisins, sweet fruitsd and some bitter notes. Good beer and this will of course improve with time. harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2007
Cask gravity at Bowl Inn, Charing. Cask had BBE 12/03/2008. Strong alcohol and a bit syrupy. Decent hop on finish but more muted than other vintages Iíve had. Good raisin fruit. Malty/raisin up front, then dry hop on finish. More earthy and less grapefruity than I expected. Still got plenty of hop though. Needs time to mature. saxo (18208) - HÝjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008

Dark copper brown color, no head. Cellary oaky aroma - not very strong. Alcoholic, fruity, bitterish. Raw, earthy brew, not as sweet as 2006 edition.
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.
