4.4/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Packaged in paper wrapper dated 2000
Pours a ruddy, milky brown with deep orange highlights. Minimal head with large carb bubbles
Raisins, apple, assorted citrus, molasses, a bit of brown sugar on the nose, buoyed by undercurrents of wheat, yeast and alcohol.
Thick and foamy on the tongue, goes down like cream
Fermented apple kick precedes sugary malt awash in mild alcohol substratum. Six years of age apparently suits this bad boy pretty well. Assertive dichotomy between the soured fruit and candied malt blends well without dissipating into bland inoffensive.
I can't really imagine tiring of this one too quickly, although that abv is liable to creep up on you.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Having a bottle touted as brewed in 2005, aged for 8-9 years. Having not rated in the style before, I wasn't sure I'd like it, to begin with, let alone an aged version (or maybe ill like it better).
Upon pour and what little scent I got, it reminded me of some barleywines or some Belgian dark ales. Raisin notes win out emanating from the muddy-auburn brown liquid. The taste is also of dark fruit-fig and dark brown sugar, a touch of banana and a slight tang of alcohol bite. The feel has a surprising effervescence to it, considering there was so little head or obvious carbonation in the look.
A very smooth, dark-style beer. The bitterness I normally enjoy in a beer is nicely replaced with a bite of alcohol and presumably carbonation. I expected a well-balanced beer when I saw the rating, and I wasn't disappointed.
