A good friend brought a 2006 vintage of this to a recent beer pairing dinner we hosted. Thanks, Roman!
Into a tulip, poured a dark murky amber-burgundy color, with a thin off-white head that did not retain well, but lacing was decent. The aroma had hints of plum, raisin, rum, vanilla, caramel, toffee..and it seemed like every time I stuck my beak in there, I came away with a new aroma. Very impressive. In the taste, I did get a sense that there was a high alcohol content, but I also got the sense that it had relented over time, and it blended very nicely with a rum-raisin, vanilla, caramel, plum, and even modest pineapple bouquet. Slight alcohol bite on the finish, but this is also where the citrus appears. Slick and smooth; thick with zero carbonation. Definitely a sipping beer, with a creamy dessert or a cigar. Not a huge fan of the style, but man did this one age well. Needless to say we went back to the store the next day to see if they had more, but no luck.
