Really excited to drink this one..2002 vintage shared by fellow BA aherberger...thanks.
This beer looked good, dark and tawney with a small head and lacing to beat the band.
Smell was one that made the eyes roll back in my head. Heavy malt sweetness, very fruity and deep.
Taste was big, no, make that huge on malt sweetness, thick and heavy with a very big mouthfeel. This was a real sipper, reminding me of almost drinking liquid candy.
I cant believe that body from this beer.
A real enjoyable treat to have during a "brew" session.
