EithCubes (4888) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Bomber from Crown. Herbal nose with heather and some tire air. Pours the deep brown of a porter, with a short light brown head. Taste is dry and roasty but still has those herbal notes (which endure into the aftertaste, where they approach juniper and give a slightly chalky residue) and flashes of fruity sweetness. Dark chocolate, loads of anise, licorice, but very little of the latter. Body is watery and a bit foamy, slightly tangy but without acidity. Refreshing and dangerously easy to drink! Smooth and subtle, a good bridge between new and old, one of the more interesting finds of this year!

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 24, 2008
This bottled brew from Indianapolis poured a small sized head of fine to medium sized foamy with a frothy top tan colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent but very dark brown colored typically carbonated body. The aroma was of mile brown and dark malts. The mouth feel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor contained notes of dark malts and hops.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle 2007 from Keg Liqour. Poured a hazy brown color with an average off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Good aroma of roasted dark chocolate malt. Medium body with smooth dry texture. Good roasted bittersweet flavor with a complex bittersweet finish of medium duration. Interesting complex brew.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2008
Sampled at Noog4. Dark Chestnut pour with a light head. Bright and bubbly aroma with Belgian funk and a touch of roasted grain. Nice. Very drinkable. It’s light with a well balanced combination of grain, hay, funk, and roasted grain. Carbonated to the point that it exaggerates its refreshing properties. Light-medium body. This is an easy drinker.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2008
I got this one in Indianapolis. The body was dark brown. The aroma was caramel and chocolate with some pancakes. The taste was pancakes with coffee and chocolate. Well made, but a little boring.

puzzl (3251) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle shared by EDA. Very vegetal, simple sugars, watermelon, kind of interesting and complex. Pours like fizzy soda pop. Crunchy, chewy, lettuce flavor, very dry, a touch of belgian yeast. Not bad.

Suttree (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours brownish reddish black. Grapey, coffee-y, chocolatey aromas at first. Nice conglomerarion of flavors, very toasty and crisp - some coffee, again, some smokey flavors, some spicy notes. Fairly quaffable, too. Sampled at Noogfest 4.

Tasted at Noogfest 4.0 (2008). This Belgian Ale pours a medium black color from a 750ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is roasted malt, yeasty and dark fruit. A medium to light bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are chocolate and toffee. The hops are earthy. Lots of flavors going on here, some roasted malts and some smoke as well. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
