DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 15, 2004
Deep ruby brown color, medium off white head. Has a fruity/raisin aroma, with roasted malt, bananas that have begun to brown, and pumpkin. Medium body for the style, sweet, flat carbonation, slightly acidic, harsh metallic taste at times, especially in the finish.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Bright brown with a garnet tint when held to the light. Small dense mocha colored head. Molasses and dry sherry aromas. Touch of grass in the background. Smooth, silky and rich in feel. Initial malt sweetness with light malt and caramel flavors to follow. A light smoke/caskwood dryness in the finish. Almost too smooth.

80skid (65) - New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Nice fruity aroma and pours very dark with a small, light brown head. Taste is pretty full as it's pretty thick and has a significant amount of a fruit taste to its flavor. Ends with a chocolately aftertaste and a hint of coffee. Not too bad. Similar to Dogfish Head Immort Ale.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Dark brown in colour, a small amount of ruby highlights are noticeable however. A unattractive off-white SUPER-large bubbled head tops the beer and fades fast. Aroma of strong raisins, caramel, soy sauce, grapes, malt and alcohol. Medium to Full-bodied; Chewy mouthful with a bunch of sweetness. Soon after the sugars hit the palate, some of the meatiness of the soy sauce becomes evident and then fades to a metallic maltiness. Aftertaste shows a bunch of the bittering characteristics of this one, and hardly any of the sweetness. Overall, this one changes over the 'sip lifecycle', but not too pleasant throughout! I bought this 33 cL bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 16-December-2003.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Intensely sweet dopplebock - superthickbodied - has some woodsy (oaky) aroma and some roasty flavor elements, but - did I mention this is sweet and thick? 3/5 from the SS pack by BHB!!!
