No date bottle but 'Batch 1", cellared in a bottle shop's reefer, 40-42 degrees, into a goblet.
Aroma figgy
Head small (1.5 cm), light brown, creamy, mostly diminishing
Fair rings of lacing
Body dark brown
Begins moderately sweet with a fig/date flavor - no diacetyl, no hops, no maltiness
Ends the same.
Body is medium to full with a creamy texture and lively carbonation.

Actually better flavor than I remember from the first time I tried it a couple of years ago - don't recall the figginess.
