27,5 cl bottle @ Tammela vintage tasting
No BBE or bottling info
Aroma has raisins, sweet malt and toffee. Flavour has tart oud bruin tones, some caramel and toffee. Finishes sour and tart with green apples and more caramel. Red wine is strong with this one. Not sure what to think about this; not good but not bad either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle Share at Ratebeer meet up, Cotteridge Wines, Cotteridge, Birmingham Saturday 5th March 2016 cheers to Beersiveknown for this one. Pours a rather murky gloomy brown colour it is as if the beer is breaking down a little and colour is leaching out, a few tiny blobs of something float about. Quite oxidised, tart and sourness prevail, fruity. The beer has long gone leaving a few remnants of what once was. I have had a few aged beers of late, i.e. Pannepot Reserva, Westvleteren 8, Fullers Vintage 1999, I am coming to the realisation that ageing for the majority is pointless, yes 2-3 years maybe but any longer is a huge gamble.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Prune, raisin and brown sugar. Dirty brown. Prunes, rials and date. A little light on the palate. If this were a bit richer on the palate it would have been a gem, otherwise not bad for its age.
