  • From a bottle bottled in August 2009.

    Pours opaque with minimal hints of light around the edges. Foam is a pleasant tan that is nicely packed. Retention is nice, leaving spotty traces.

    Aroma has hints of tart dark cherry and must. Sherry maybe.

    Taste is a bit more complex, giving hints of past glory. Cherry and sherry give a tart and dank mustiness to the beer. Dark malts come late: roast with a hint of drying ashiness.

    Medium mouth feel. Medium carbonation with small bubbles almost coming up the nose late in the experience.

    Very difficult to grade since it is well past the prime and definitely slightly hit by wild yeast or bacteria. I defintely want to have it again in order to give the beer a fair review. Enjoy!
