Translucent red-brown. Light brown head. Sweet, roasty aroma w/ caramel, molasses & vanilla. Full bodied, somewhat sticky. Rich, sweet, roasty flavour w/ caramel, molasses, licorice & nuts. Somewhat woody, earthy finish.

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2003
Dark, slightly murky brown. Nose is full of honey, almonds and maple, among other things, with the only drawback being how much sickly syrup it contains. Has a strong feeling initially on the tongue, rolling back across the tongue and bubbling while leaving flavors of peanuts, maple syrup, apples, and even some cayenne.

Very malty nose and palate. Very little hops on either. Good dark reddish color. Caramely with a slightly chewy mouth feel. Good but not great.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Brown color with maybe a slight haze to it,could just be my imagination.Small super fast dissappearing head.Mild aroma period,mild hints of malt and like kathy says hint of cherry,slight spicy hint with a mild hint of alcohol.Malty semi sweet taste with a mild fruit flavor and decent hop presence.there is a slight syrupy feel to it.The after taste is malty with a slight hop bite and bitterness then the alcohol kicks in at the tail end,it shows up lightly in the taste but hits much better at the end with a nice warm feel going down.This was definately worth the trouble of seeking out and i have to thanks Hopsrus for this great addition to my bock experience.One more thing after a gentle warming period the aroma is starting to come through much better.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Amber brown color with very little head. Candied cherry aroma (mild) with some spicy cola aroma, like cherry cola, but with sour-ish cherry, not sweet (definitely not like cherry Coke or Dr. Pepper). Well balanced. Mildly sweet and somewhat malty. Very good.

ok, people are prolly gonna shoot me after seeing that i rated this higher than Celebrator, but i had this one on tap at the Eccentric Cafe, in K-Zoo, rich malty, very fruity and nutty, caramel and cream are present as well, nice and carbonated, which made the heavy mouth feel almost unnoticable, very clean finish to it

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 (On tap at the brewery) Looks like I'm going against the grain here. This was my first beer of the day, so I wasn't influenced by alcohol. Absolutely stunning, sparkling clear ruby brew. Very small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Quicly dissipating. Thick and oily in the glass. The aroma is rich and malty. Notes of alcohol, caramel, prune and raisins. The flavor? MaltHeads, jump for joy! Very hearty, rich and sweet with loads of raisins, light molasses, caramel and candy sugar. Perfectly bittered for balance. Full-bodied with a super heavy, oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. Excellent! Reminiscent of DFH's Raison D' Etre on tap. Worth the trip to Kalamazoo!

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2003
Somewhat hazy reddish hue, small head with little lacing. Medium to full- bodied. Roasted malty aroma, hint of pine and spice, phenolic notes, a weird rubbery hint too. Lively mouthfeel. Sweet and spicy tasting, slighty unbalanced. Very dry finish. Compared to most of Bells stable of brews, this one is below average.

Bottle: Brown with smallish head. Sweetish, malty flavor. Unspectacular.
