BeerandBlues2 (10073) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2007
Bottle purchased at Vulcan Beverages, Birmingham, AL. Pours sparkling dark brown with an average creamy light brown head, mostly lasting, good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (caramel, cookie), light hops (herbs), average yeast (dough, leather) with notes of butterscotch, honey and apple. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation and a creamy finish. Moderate sweetness, light acidity and bitterness; sweet roasted caramel malt flavor.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2007
(Bottle) Pours clear deep red. Mild roasted and some dark bread maltiness in the aroma with tiny notes of some funky fruits. Only a touch of spicy. Some dark syrup also notable. Malty flavour with a light sour sting that is almost a bit berry like. Also some notes of spicy hops, dark bread and a light roastiness. Finish is more sour-ish dry than bitter dry. Medium body.

bgburdman9 (858) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle given by shigadeyo. Aroma of malt and some spices. Pours a brown color with some reddish hues. Not getting a lot of the scotch in this. Allright i guess.

Discofish (152) - USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours a thin lacey head, light and malty, but undeveloped. Spicey notes fade into a smooth clean finish. Tasty, but a pretty tpyical lager.

IrishBoy (3887) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 26, 2007

Boutip (4868) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a medium brown color ale with a small foamy head with limited retention. Aroma of light roasted malt with some subtle semi-sweet caramel malt. Taste is also dominated by the mix between light roasted malt and caramel malt. Body is thinner then I would have expected and no hops presence could be detected. I thought this one was definitely lacking character and end up being quite boring.

omhper (19963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, rich creamy head. Spicy cardboardy nose. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some fruits, evident blunt crystal malt character, lots of paper mash. Fairly low bitterness. A style of beer that solely relies on malt character, and in this case that malt character happens to be simplistic and harsh. A huge let down.

Bottle at New Beer Distributors. Pours a nice deep amber color. Tastes malty, spiced and has notes of sweet dark fruits. Overall pretty nice for a Winter Ale.
