Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2005
Bottled, on a boat, without proper glassware. Someone on the boat however dropped her bottle, the beer flushing out over the bottom of the boat, showing a nice tan head and a probably dark reddish brown colour. Fruity (red fruit) and caramel dominate the brew. The alcohol is quite well hidden but something in there is a little harsh. All in all quite good brew.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
Draught: Ruby amber with a tan. Caramel flavour dominates. Stick feel. A bit bland and boring really.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Had on tap in Belgium. Very refreshing. A good restorative on a hot day. Rich color and taste. But surprisingly mild and smooth. A nice hop bitterness. Don’t drink too fast!

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2005
Beautiful amber brown colour, but with a quite small off-white head. Aroma of roses, alcohol, toffee and hops. The taste is a roasty malt combination of sweet and sour, very unusual, with a more hoppy finish.

Bottle. Nutty brown with a small head. Aromas are malty and sweet with pepper, berries and some smoky nutiness. Flavours are sweet and malty with yeast, chocolate and spices. Also has dates - quite fruity. Alcohol on the finish. A bit simplistic but decent.
