No dating that I can understand.... what is stamped on it is 04.163, 0386, 1-3, and 2822" hazy and unclear dark chestnut with just a bit of a pale copper ring of tiny bubbles and a few dibs and dabs of islands here and there. Nice strong scents, banana and cloves, wonderfully spicey! Sasafrass, fresh ginger even maybe? Good amount of carbonation, you can really feel it as it foams up a bit and expands in your mouth. Interesting flavors, not too strong, yet in no way is it mild.... Nice and malty, just slightly dark. There is a hit of sasafrass and a lot of nice clove in the finish, even a bit of a clove tingle on the tongue -I like that and have always loved the taste of clove. Goes down nicely, with a lot to think about and enjoy in this one. Not too heavy, but may be best as a sipper or with a good cheese plate.

4.1/5 rDev -5.5%

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.
