This beer is almost 4 years old. Got lost in the cellar.

Pours a murky medium brown with tones of copper and a lingering, dense, frothy head.

Aroma is rummy, with notes of sherry, raisins, and dates adding complexity. Caramel malt, toffee, and toasted nuts bring melanoidins to mind.

Flavor is compromised. There's a vinegar tartness that has overtaken the beer. The rich, toasted malt character remains, with a fairly dry finish. Getting beyond the tartness, notes of plums, dates, and figs are pleasant.

Body is fairly full, with modest carbonation and noted alcohol warmth.

Good beer, minus the vinegar notes. Moral of the story...Didn't age well. My score will be the current average, to avoid skewing the average because of the beer's age.
