Bottle marked 31113, 2012 vintage
Bottle at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of roasted malt, dates, and figs
Head small (2 cm), light brown, creamy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and 1 mm layer with small bubble islands
Lacing good – complete rings of tiny bubbles
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor sweet, intense dates and figs with roasted malt; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, soft carbonation

This is worlds better than when it came out in 2012 – the rough edges have smoothed well.
