This is a vintage 05F bottle.

Pours an impenetrable dark color with two inches of mocha colored foam. Very good retention; the foam literally comes to a stand-still close to an inch and leaves a bit of coating on the way down. Eventually the foam reduces to a thin layer but it sure took about a good 5min.

Aromas of cherries, dark fruits, chocolate, roasted grains, grapes and hints of citrus. There are some hints of grains and vinous characteristics as well. Some charcoal and sandalwood.

Tastes of dark chocolate, toast and has an odd sweet flavor as well. Raisins and dates come through in the middle and finishes with cocoa, hints of vanilla, and malted milk. Also has some flavors of grapes, various dark fruits I, very tasty actually. After a while I begin to taste some of those peanut butter flavored cookies and oatmeal cookies.

Very smooth mouth-feel, near perfect.
