Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Dark brown with big beige head.

Quite fruity in a dried and soft oxidized way. Over medium sweet and medium bitter. Almost full bodied with quite some carbonation. Quite nice!

solidfunk (9440) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 11, 2017
More sublime than what I got. Rose aroma with prunes and a touch of smoky leather. Cloudy brown pour. Light sweet finish. Subtle and wonderfully packaged. Bottle thanks to the guys at Castro's Lounge in Toronto, who gave this to me like 5 years ago when I moved out of the neighbourhood. Symbolic end of an era. Bottle.
