1995 version. Man, this was not only the worst beer I've ever had, but the worst tasting substance that has ever been in my mouth. Looked good. Very dark. Not a bit of head on it. But then I smelled it. Smelled like straight up soy sauce. The smell alone made me dread tasting this, yet I proceeded. Tasted of soy sauce, maybe just a bit of chocolate malt, and then the finish was pure maple syrup. The maple syrup lingered on and on and on until I woke up the next morning. The mouthfeel was extremely thick. Now I know what people mean by "chewy". Overall, this was an experience I will NEVER forget. 4 sips was all I could handle, then I had to drain pour it. I made my wife take a sip and I didn't think she was going to make it. I'm extremely pleased that I had the chance to taste something so aged, but I'm even more pleased that the torture is over.

Shared this with BPK59 at his birthday party. A fun tick. This was 1995 vintage. Of course Ben broke the cork off and in to the bottle...hah!
A - Poured in to a small snifter a motor oil thick dark dark brown nearly black hue with some really incredible legs.
S - Aromas of sweeter malts, salty brine, soy sauce.
T - Taste is even worse than the nose. Loads of sticky sweet malts, salty sweet soy sauce. Ugh
M - Mouthfeel is heavy and syrupy
O - Overall this was a soy bomb. I guess this beer truly is russian roulette, as some bottles are incredible and others are just plain drain pour. Still, glad I got to try it!
