I took a guess at the year.

A - When I popped the cap, foam started coming out of the bottle, so at least there are no carbonation issues. Bright tan toffee colored head forms that is a bit fizzy. Reduces to a thin film on the surface. Body is a dark brown and shows garnet highlights when brought ot the light.

S - Slight smokiness here. Maybe peat smoked malts? Nice sweetness of molasses and dark fruits. Dates, raisins, and plums.

T - Much like the smell here. Starts off with slightly smoky malts. Red fruits mix in with dark fruits, with cherries, black cherries, dates, plums, and maybe figs. Nice light molasses. Cherry flavors comes on stronger at the finish than the initial hit. Some sugary sweetness lingers in the aftertaste.

M - Full bodied and very smooth.

Overall - I have not had this beer fresh, but age seems to have been kind to it. Very tasty with excellent mouthfeel. Drinkable at 8.8%.
