Dorwart (2423) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2005
Nice dense head of fine bubbles. Creamy on top. Light carbonation. Roasty aroma with roasted grains, hint of soy sauce and dry dog food. Malts become more prevalent as the brew warms. Color is a very dark reddish brown. Dry and roasty flavors. Dry roasted peanuts, a little bitterness and a touch of sweet malts. Slightly chalky. Dry and bitter finish with a lingering roasted flavor. Hides its alcohol well. A decent brew but not all that special.

Enormo (26) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAY 12, 2005
Nice deep amber color with a frothy tan head. Noticed a ton of floatiies in the first, second, and third pour. They coverd the bottom of my glass. Piney hop aroma, almost like a barley wine. Taste was well balanced with hops and malt with a somewhat short and sweet finished. A little light in body, but overall: Very well done, I was pleasently surprised by this one.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Dark and slightly hazy ruby color, with a thick off-white head. Unusual aroma of caramel, cherries, hops, and vanilla. Medium body, malty, metallic and bitter, again unique. Feels like a cross between an amber ale, an IPA, and a dubbel. Another great beer from this underrated brewery.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Bottle - deep ruby body with a smallish beige head. The head was quickly gone. Deeply malty aroma - very barleywine-ish. Is that a word? Also quite fruity. I get cherries. Pretty fizzy mouthfeel. Grassy flavored hops come through as the brew warms. Very nice malty sweetness. Good!

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2005
22oz Bottle poured a dark red brown with a huge, thick, creamy head and lacing that hangs in sheets! Big hopy aroma with a flavor to match. Great easy drinking ale that reminds me more of a good IPA!

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 3, 2005
22oz - Sweet malt-hop combo on the nose. Dark brownish red color with a small head that disappeared quickly leaving decent lacing. Flavor is sweet and smooth. I can’t decide which hits first or is stonger, the hop or the malt. I like that fact and it makes for a real smotth drinkin brew.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2005
Rusty brown pour with a thick creamy lightly tanned head. Citrus, florals, and hints of pine jump out in the nose, but sweet toasty caramel malt tones lie just beneath the surface. Smooth grapefruit and piney bitterness flavors up front, slightly grainy throughout, with a light sweet caramel malt bringing it home. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, dry, bitter finish. Very nice as with most of BR’s brews, but Scottish Style Red Ale?? Hmmmm....let’s just call it an IPA and move on please....

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2005
22oz bomber. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Sweet malt and hop aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet malt on first sip, before turning dry and bitter with the hops coming through.

ojclark (69) - Santa Monica, California, USA - APR 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Subtle hoppy, malty aroma. Poured with a very thick light beige head that lingered a while. Deep reddish brown color that was dark, but translucent. Roasted, caramel malt flavor offset by a restrained hoppiness. Pleasant aftertase was a good blend of the flavor characteristics. Fairly rich, well-carbonated mouthfeel bordering on creamy due to the fine carbonation. Overall, a very nice beer: a balanced and rich amped-up red ale.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle from LoweredSixth. Pours a ruddy brown color. Nice compact off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is pleasantly malty with just a touch of hop presence. Body is medium and smooth. Decent carbonation. Malty initial flavors are overridden with a long slow hop buildup and finish. LIngering bitterness. Nice.
