This beer poured as brown as the bottle it comes in, with a tan head. The cage from the 750ml bottle had a best before date of 2008! The blurb on the bottle says this will cellar up to 15 years.
Aromas are malt, caramel, clove. The tastes were malt, clove, caramel, mild grapefruit. Not as complex as some others I've tried, but probably the most balanced comboination of flavors. The mouthfeel was light, with a medium carbonation, a little more than I'd expect from bottle conditioning, but not over the top. It finished with citrus, leather, malt.
Yummy, I'll have to get this again!
