beerbill (3536) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Pours into the glass a deep amber color with very little head. Aroma is a bit weak. Flavor is a little sweet with malt and herbal overtones.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 14, 2005
In the bottle. Reddish brown in color with a tan head. Toasted aroma. The first taste wave is sweetness. Then something odd happens: you get this amazingly weird grass taste. Beer finishes with an odd ketone off-flavor. This is a strange one indeed.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
Bottle - Pours out copper red with a nice whittish head. Sweet malty toffee aromas. Malty flavor with a thinish body carmel and sweet noted with a hint of bitterness at the end. Not bad at all but needs some more body.

pivo (2585) - GERMANY - APR 5, 2005
Caramelly doughy nose, deep amber color, low frothy head on sides of glass. Sweet medium toaste malt with a hint caramel flavor. Metallic-ish end with only a little hop character. Big body, good balance. Rather reserved but quality brewing and well done overall.

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - APR 4, 2005
Nice amber color, small cushion of a head, no visible carbonation. Medium hops and also malt-caramel nose. Honey and caramel taste with a herbal - sage - finish. Thin bodied. Thanks a lot arnoud for putting that into our suitcase!

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2005
I sampled this on 2/22/05. Aroma: light bread. Plum, apple, honey. A bit weak. Low rating on aroma because of weakness. Appearance: small frothy head. Virtually no head. White in color with fair lacing. Fully diminishing. Body was clear and flat. Medium red hue. Flavor: Light sweetness. Average finish. Palate: light to medium, oily watery texture. Flat and light astringent. Overall, very original tasting beer. Never had anything like it. Weird. Flavor has herbs? Very odd and confusing. I didn’t really like this one.

mobrew (19) - Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2005
This has a very nice ruby color along with flavors of carmel and licorce. the hop bitterness is only slight and makes this a very will liked and easy to drink brew.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 23, 2005
12 oz bottle. Deep, slightly translucent chestnut topped with a stable quarter-inch of off-white foam and a touch of lacing....caramel, licorice and tobacco noted in the appealing aroma...creamy vanilla, cherry in a vinous, slightly nutty body, with a late touch of whiskey and pecans...pepper and nutmeg late...full, very slightly syrupy body.

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Poured from a bottle: Nice, rich & nutty aroma. Copper-colored with ruby edges. Decent tan head that settles into a good lacing. Initial taste is nutty toffee followed by mild hopping. Full mouthfeel and "just right" carbonation. This brew is very good.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Slightly murky hazel brown pour with copious off-white head, complemented by thick sheets of lacing. No aroma. Extreme caramel and toasted nut flavors. The malt in this beer is fantastic. Smooth on the palate, with a smack of sweet cinnamon and apple. Extremely drinkable and rich.
