750 ml bottle shared by @1up.

Again, this one must have aged to perfection given the previous ratings. Huge plum and date nose. Flavor is sweet dates, plum, and caramel finish. Sweet but really thin.

A - Light haze on a brown body. White head pours 2 fingers high with ok retention and lace.

S - Sweet nose with french toast, raisins, brown sugar, and vanilla soufflé.

T - Really interesting. Chestnut, raw french toast, dried figs, and Brazil nuts.

M - Medium body. Surprisingly smooth. Relatively quick finish.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing.

Light fizzy head fades almost instantly, murky tan brown.

Nose bleh, weird brown malt thing, mild candy malt, fruity brown fruit, little grainy Syrupy, meh.

Taste isn't too bad, syrupy candy, molasses, little burnt sugar caramel and candy sugar, hint of Smokey note, brown malt, etc. Mild earthy bitterness, generic fruity note, etc, little butterscotch. Finish is drier, little grassy herbal bitterness, mild sweet candy malt, sticky.

Mouth is med bod, little syrupy, decent carb.

Overall ok but nothing special.
