3.65/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Pours a medium orange-red with initially lively carbonation and creamy, tan head, both fading relatively quickly. Very sweet aroma, very vaguely fruity with notes of brown sugar and spiced rum. Taste is likewise sweet but not roasted, flavors of bread and honey and a slight corn graininess. There is adequate carbonation but nothing more in the mouthfeel, it's somewhat thin and noticeably un-sticky. Could drink a few though. Overall a very solid beer but not as excellent as I would expect for a 100th anniversary.

This 1 has been in the cellar for a couple years.

Pours a slightly hazy dark amber brown with a quarter inch khaki foamy head that dissipates into a thin film.

Melanoidin, deeply caramelized malt, forms the initial aroma. Very buttery, nutty, toffee notes blend with a sherry-like dark fruit note that is reminiscent of black cherries.

Flavor reveals dark fruit notes of plum and cherry, along with a hint of sherry. Prunes and raisins combine with deeply toasted caramel malt and roasted nuts. There's a hint of cardboard due to oxidation.

Body is a touch full, with low carbonation and slight alcohol warmth.

This has been interesting. Aged quite well. Probably close to being too old.
