thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 26, 2005
This draft brew from Nicholson’s in Cinci poured a medium sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained no visible carbonation, was semi-transparent and dark ruby red brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of brown malt mild . Its mouth feel is off mildly acidic vinegar with a palate and a aftertaste. Its flavor contained malty acidic burnt off notes and was very poor flavor. This brew was advertised to us as a porter, but was noted as not being porter like at all. Horrible brew that does not match the quality and descriptions of this brew here. Mark for re-rate.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2005
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy deep red beer with a small orange head. The aroma is light with notes of berries. The flavor is lovely sweet malty with notes of caramel, alcohol, and oranges, and with a dry woody end. Nice one.

cask pbf’05 Very nice Christmas beer. Did drink it in the summer... at the Peterborough Beer Festival. Sweet beer, but nice balance with dark fruits and malts. Also clearly alcohol present. I would realy like to have some of this beer in a cask during Christmass!

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - AUG 15, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2005 I had this right after Christmas so my memory is foggy at best. I remember it was a barley wine and that it was pretty good. It was on tap too. Other than that...
