Got a 2009 bottle of this in a trade with Mora2000.
Pours a medium, cloudy amber, leaving about a finger of very light tan head. This dissipates quickly, leaving some lacing.
A bit of caramel sweetness in the nose, perhaps a little fruit. Nothing really big here, but I have a slight cold that may be affecting my sense of smell.
The flavor starts with some smooth caramel and dark fruit, then gives way to some resiny bitterness, and alcohol warmth.
This beer is smooth and creamy. Not much carbonation, but just enough to keep it from seeming flat.
While this smells and feels like a high alcohol beer, I would never have guessed just how high. Excellent drinkability for the style and for the ABV.

From a 12 ounce bottle into a teku. March 2013 edition.
A- Orange and copper colored body. Exceptionally persistent head that remains even after sipping. Lace is sticky, abundant and scattered. Carbonation bubbles stick to the glass plainly visible in the body. Sexy.
S- Citrusy, sweet, honey-like. Thick sweet malt flavor. Caramel and toffee abound. A very pungent and robust flavor.
T- Continues very citrusy. Caramel, toffee and sweet malt too. The nose and taste are very consistent.
M- I love how creamy this drinks. Quite smooth and mellow. The age must have done this well, because there's zero hint of alcohol. No burn whatsoever. It's sweet as I've mentioned, with only a slight bitterness from whatever citrusy hops it started with.
This beer probably isn't getting the props it deserves. It's delicious. I can't speak to this beer flesh, but a year and four months have aged it well.
