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.

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.

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.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Sampled at the Noogfest courtesy of MRomero548: Pours a hazy dark copper with lots of yeast in suspension (likely a result of poor handling) and a thin lightly-lacing white head. Aroma is dry and earthy with a light oakiness and some sweet caramel with hints of alcohol. Body is sweet, malty, thick and complex with lots of caramely Belgian malt, a touch of butterscotch, some mild fruitiness and plenty of oak and warming alcohol. Nicely balanced with great complexity, but could hide its alcohol a little better. Thanks Mark!

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Thanks to MRomero for sending this in absentia to the Chattanooga gathering. Spare head with spotty lacing over a hazy deep amber body. Lots of maple in the aroma with a medly of dark fruits, vanilla and alcohol that echo in the flavor. Nicely done.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Thanks for shipping this one to the Nooga, MRomero. Cloudy medium orange body. The aroma has alcohol and cherries. Also, oranges, apples and perfume. The taste has sweet apples, honey and a dry white wine finish. The alcohol is everpresent. Nicely done, but I wonder about the price for this beer.

A bit thanx to MRomero for supplying to noogfest, which he couldn’t attend but supplied the bottle anyway! Nice dark amber color. Huge sweet honey and vanilla aroma. Big flavors, including lots of fruits and honey and sweetness, and some spiciness.. Some peppery alcohol, but really well hidden considering its a 13%.
