Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle, pours a dark bruin body with a tan head fizzy and rocky with medium retention. Oxidation galore minerals, moth, and paper tones. Apple cores, black raisin notes, light caramel and a bit grainy. Medium body a bit fizzy on the tongue with a light papery sweetness. Surprisingly decent for so much oxidation.

Christian (13578) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2009
1996. Dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Strong oxidized, dried fruit aroma. mixed with caramel an licorice notes. Sweet caramel flavour with licorice, smooth and soft mouthfeel. This bottle was too oxidized, but had all the signs of an excellent brew.

33cl bottle @ DHVL. 1996 Vintage. Dark brown with a creamy bubbly foam and lacings. Nose is aged, dust, cellar, caramel, tart, bread. Smooth, oxidized, mouldy and bready. Flavor gets better and better and went well with my "lasagne 4 cheeses" meal. Strong sherry and liquorice notes comes up. Lovely.

Cannot definitely age this but its definitely at least 2002, but I would guess more like 2000. Stamped L284. It pours a murky brown with a small head. Aroma is lively with light raisin, with sweet black bread, and light lemon-y wild characteristic. It seems aged but not in the "old" or "cardboard" way but the light lemon-like aspect. Taste is lightly water-y from the age, then there is a light black bread sweetness and light chocolate plum candy. A lighter side of medium body with a lightly below average carbonation. Aged nicely enough but I would not wait any longer.
750mL cork and cap, Corsendonk tulip glass.

marcus (10051) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 3, 2007
1996 bottle aged in my cellar. This is a very fruity brown ale that has held up quite well. The head was diminished by the years, but there was still some tasty malt with chocolate and figgy characteristics. Quite enjoyable.
