2007 vintage corked and caged bottle. Split with a friend. Looks good, clear and golden with good head and retention. Aroma is funk, sweat and metal with no softness at all. Tastes is simply horrible with very little tartness, lots of sewage and cheap vodka, and an off putting bitterness at the end. Ridden with metal and yuck. The aroma was inviting before I tasted it, and a few sips ruined the beers I drank before and after this one.

I am positive that something must have been wrong with my bottle because the beer in it was simply disgusting. Drainpour!

Pours a pale orange, minimal white head.

Strong smell ... kind of weird. A vinegariness and also a ... rotten odor? Not unripe, but rotten.

That carries through to the taste. Yeargh, this is pretty bad. I don't know what that rottenness is, but it overlays the funk and sour zest and is incredibly offputting.

Good mouthfeel on a bad beer. I feel so guilty recommending this to someone, I confused it with another brew.

2007 vintage...

A- Very pale straw color. Almost light lager color, but a touch more golden. Giant foamy head that settles as very large bubbles pop and diminish.

S- Granny smith apples and some funk. Also a few lemons in there. Has a slight rotted wood aroma mixed it that gives me mixed signals.

T/M- Bland off the bat. Dull and watery. Tiny bit of wood and funk. I don't have much to say on this...

O- Disappointing. What flavors do come out are flat and unappealing. The aroma had some good qualities that made me look forward to the taste, but none of that came through.

Pale yellowish, watery honey like pour with a small offwhite head. Smell is fruity and funky. Sharp bubbly mouthfeel that is a bit too carbonated actually. Taste is tart, acidic, and bland with no sweetness. Nothing appealing to me. Couldn't finish my sample size.

Big thanks to all involved in another great tasting! Jeremy, Frank and Kevin! 2001 Bottle with 9 years on it.

A-pours a clear light orange color with a thin white head.

S-the nose smells of scotch, lots of malty sweetness, residual sugars, caramel, carmelized prunes, and notes of booze.

T-single malt scotch up front, tons of burnt malty sugars, burnt caramel, carmelized plums, a bit of heat and booze, a little watery and papery in the back. probably past its prime.

M-rough on the edges, medium syrupy body with low carbonation and a harsh dry finish.

D-this is pretty poor, tons of burnt sugars and seems to have oxidized. lots of scotch and sherry notes, much like a harsh liquor.
