CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
(750ml bottle) Sampled at the RBSG 2005 in Montreal.Huge amount of a floaties peppered in the thin almond head. A pleasant amber body. Nose of marshmellows, iodine, elastics, malt. Flavour is meloow malt and Christmas pudding. The 13% ABV is hardly detectable. Near unbeatable complexity! This was a surprisingly excellent beer for me and could have been my favourite of RBSG2005.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Bottle... RBSG 2005... Cloudy, amber ale with a small, frothy, orangesque head. Nose of bourbon, wood, alcohol, raisin and light chocolate. Malty, vineous flavor of chocolate, bourbon, nuts, wood and caramel with a whisper of alcohol and salt. Full-bodied and syrupy with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, woody, dry finish. Very nice... if you like bourbon. I do!

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
2005 RBSG Montreal Friday Night Tasting. Golden orange colour with a fully lasting creamy and fruity off-white head. Raisin, raspberry, orange, light perfume, red wine aromas. Flavours of orange, raisin, caramel, port, chocolate, very light alcohol - very complex but incredibly well blended. Full bodied, smooth and lightly warming. Highlight of the night for me.

sweaty alcohol aroma with hints of birch, suspended sediment in a cloudy yellow body, super strong alcohol dominates with budding woodiness, not as complex as expected

(750ml bottle) Pours an amber body with a plethora of yeast floaties. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, oak, and a hint of cherries. Liqueur-like qualities in the palate. Flavor of toffee, alcohol, and spicy yeast. Smooth finish.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2005
The cork had a smell like an old mimeograph machine (the kind of copier that schools had before photocopiers were invented/affordable, with purple ink that ran off copies from a rotating drum). Hazy golden/amber/bronze color, dense with floaties suspended in the liquid. Fruit aroma, candy sweet, with stroong pear and apple, and alcohol driving it all up my nose. Smooth liqueur quality, silky but not especially thick, also giving some flavors from the caramel spectrum. Very interesting and enjoyable, while also quite original.

radiomgb (2182) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2005
Bottle. Orange amber in colour with some floaties and a thing white head, some lace. The aroma was of caramel, earth, yeasty and some alcohol. The flavour was of alcohol up front, some yeast, earth, caramel malts and sugar cookies. Slightly sweet mouthfeel, medium-large body, livelycarbonation. Finishes with a peppery spice and a lingering alcohol bitterness. Pretty good stuff but I was left expecting more.
