First: Very cluttered deposits, surely due to age. Does not hurt the taste very much if at all. In pouring, the color went from rather clear red, to a ruby, to an impenetrable dark brown. Head was fleeting at best, though hangs on to a thin film. Again, likely due to age. Notes of cherry, alcohol, nuts, yeast, and peach. A very layered set of flavors, and very nice. Hoppy and aromatic. Whiffs of dust and cardboard. Nice lacing. Palate is crisp, sandy, and subtle. Long lasting fruity finish. A very nice beer. I think that a fresher one will do even better.

Aroma 9 out of 10

Visuals 4 out of 5

Taste 8 out of 10

Palate 4 out of 5

Second A very good beer, though a fresher one would do better, I’m sure. Certainly worth its praise.

Overall 17 out of 20
