argo0 (13753) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 15, 2004
(2002 bottle) The age didn’t affect the carbonation -- a gusher upon opening. Heck, after losing about 4 oz. and pouring another 4 into the glass, the foam in the bottle STILL made its way back to the top, ready to resume streaming down the side. Red brown body topped by a quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma is sweet, brown sugar, herbal, prune, coriander. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, coriander, toffee, herbal, some orange peel, dark fruit. Finish is dominated by moderately strong alcohol. Full, moderately sticky body.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 Bottle (2007). Dark reddish-brown with a huge beige head. Pleasant aroma of malt, yeast, spices, brown sugar and some fruits. Sweet flavor of malt, caramel, some yeast and spices. A drier finish with a slight alcohol burn. Alcohol is a bit too noticable. A medium to full body and a bit overcarbonated. A good beer.
