Aging in oak barrels for 6 months gives this beer an uncommon smoothness and richness.

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.

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!

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.

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%.

I believe this was send by MRomero, via Brandon (?). I think that’s right, but in any event, thank you so much! Pours a hazy, chunky, orange. Smells sweet. Red licorice, candy and fruit. Multi-faceted. The flavor, Wow! Sunshine right in your mouth. Muscat dessert wine, honey, and caramel at the end. The body was smooth and creamy. Really lingers. What a wonderful beer!

Suttree (5190) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Orange, with a thin white head. Very sweet aroma, with a nice whiskey aroma front and center and notes of honey, prune and maybe melon in the background. The whiskey is a bigger player in the flavor than the aroma, but notes of honey and citrus in the background. A bit of medicinal finish.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Thanks for sending this our way MRomero. A dark golden appearance. A strong presence of alcohol in the taste and the aroma. A spicy, herbal, and perfume aroma. A sour flavor with some rum and tangerines. A spicy and warming aftertaste. Good stuff ya hear.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2005
Slightly hazy golden-amber hue with a fine, creamy, white head. Honey, grapes, peaches, bread, high quality potato vodka, gewurztraminer, rome apples. So many wonderfully crazy fruits jumping around in the aroma. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately acidic finish. Alcohol is refined in the flavor, nothing hot or sharp. Medium-full body, creamy/velvety texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: a platter of fruits and breads covered in honey for dessert...(see Mark, I can be trusted!)
