Rating #700 (wonder how many beers I’ve actually tried, yet only rated 700)...pulled one out of the cellar for this moment - 2006 (yes) vintage - pours a beautiful deep garnet with no head and near-zero carbonation. Aroma is candied fruit, booze, caramelized malt, more alcohol, raisin, brown sugars - complex and pleasant, though quite boozy! Flavor is nice as well - dark fruit at the forefront turns into a mix of brown sugar, alcohol, and red wine. Sweet throughout, I’m a bit surprised that 10 years hasn’t toned down the alcohol just a bit. Oily and slick on the palate - the lack of carbonation isn’t a detractor. No hints of oxidization thankfully. Enjoyable - now I need to have it fresh - guess I’ll have to head to Portland in 2016!
