-Pours a dark reddish-brown with head reducing to fine lacing.
-Delicious aroma of sherry, plum / jammy dark fruit, sweet molasses, beef gravy and cardboard
-The taste is oxidized and one dimensional. Unfortunately that dimension is cardboard. There is a pleasant note of dark fruit finishing with with a hint of soy sauce and bitter malt. An unpleasant aftertaste develops.
-Mouthfeel is silky with very fine, creamy carbonation.
-I think this would have been a very fine beer in its prime. I recently had a 2010 Reserva that rocked my world. This is a shell of that beer. I am giving extra points to the overall score given that opening any beer at this age is a crapshoot and that Pannepot has not disappointed me in the past.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.
Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, candied fruit, and slight cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with candied fruit, caramel, and slight cardboard flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that seems a bit old and oxidized at this point, but it's still fairly tasty as is.
