4.06/5 rDev +1.8%
Can't tell the exact bottle date, as part of the date is smudged. Looking at other reviewers, this one was last brewed in 2007, making this one at least 6 years old! A first grader!
Pours a deep, dense, and murky opaque ruby-brown. Very little carbonation, and no lace at all.
Nose is raisins, prunes, and dried fruit. Already a rich experience.
Taste is big!!! Plenty of fruit -- sour grapes, raisins, leather, tobacco... If I didn't mention again, it's BIG on flavor, but most definitely a sipper. About as heavy a beer experience as I've ever had. Alcohol is definitely detectable, but much less than expected.
Enjoyable, but not for the faint of taste buds.

Bottled 09/29/06. Thanks Steve.
A: No head, at all. Murky as could be. Dirty brown body with a bright ruby red/mahogany hue.
S: Tootise roll candy. Soft chocolate, chewey caramel, light toffee. Booze, metallic notes in undertone, really have to look.
T/M: Sherry-like, mouth puckering astringent bite. Really hard going down. Malts flavors are intensely unique and quite enjoyable.
O: May have aged just a bit too long. Booze is too hot to enjoy the evolved malt profile. Impressed for taking the shot. Would def try again and hope for different results.

2007 Vintage acquired in a trade. Surprised to hear a nice carbonated sound when cracking it open. As I was pouring it then aroma was quite prevalent.
Poured into a snifter a dark brown color with a couple cm white head which dissipated quickly.
Aroma is fantastic - brown sugar, figs, dates, oak
Mouthfeel - fairly heavy and still a bit of carb, not as oxided as I would have expected.
Taste is just outstanding - similar to aroma- sweet, brown sugar, raisins, old port, definitely boozy
Finish is strong and hot. Enjoying this very much!
