4.15/5 rDev +4%
Reviewed from notes. Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by Andrew. 2006 Vintage.
A: Pours a semi-clear amber with a very thin (1/16-inch) white head with essentially dissapears and leaves a couple of spots of lace.
N: Loads of caramel and vanilla, sweet malts, slightly oxidized notes.
T: Sweet caramel and toffee, slight stale bread.
M: Semi-full body and light carbonation. Finishes with a lingering sweet caramel.
O: The age on this makes it extra special. A treat.

Poured from a bottle into a stout glass.
A: Dark and thick like a black coffee. Little bit of carbonation bubbles on the outside edge of the glass.
S: Rich and malty with a toffee and vanilla nose.
T: Very boozy, but not overpowering. Big chocolate and vanilla flavors. Malt body, no bitterness or hops apparent. Coffee, toffee and caramel in the middle and on the finish.
M: Smooth, rich and creamy. Very fun to drink. Silky.
O: A very cool, rich and heavy beer. Not something to drink lightly (no pun intended), but very, very good.
