Best before date suggests Oct, 1995 but this slid into my fridge in the last 3 months. Maybe using up old importer labels. This pours a ruddy medium brown sewer water looking color. It has very little head and even less carbonation. This may be old! Nose is big toffee like with sweetness and caramel. Flavor is the same, more caramel, and has no bitterness to balance it out. Finish is toffe and a hint of raisin, I think that this is old.
