DISCLAIMER: This is a review of an AGED bottle of Celebration 2004. It was cellared for about 5 years.
Appearance: coppery-brown, hazy, thin layer of yellowy froth/suds, not much head retention, loose sediment
Aroma: malt caramel, sherry, very slight hops, brown sugar
Flavor: bready malt sweetness with overtones of rum raisin, dark brown sugar, and sherry; hop bitterness is still quite present as a raspy attack on the back of the tongue; finishes semi-sweet with a piney aftertaste
Mouthfeel: medium-full body, pert carbonation, alcohol warmth, and astringency on the teeth
Other comments: OK, this beer does not age well (at least not extended aging). It has become very unbalanced and a mere shadow of it's former self. Good experiment though.
