750ml bottle shared with HogTownHarry at Brasserie Frisco. Pours a murky bubbly reddish-brown with a large lasting creamy off-white head. Nice aroma of yeast, dark fruit, brown sugar and spices. Sweet fruity flavour with yeast, spices, malt and a mild bitter finish -- very tasty. Alcohol is very well hidden. Medium bodied. Pleasant and easy to drink, this is very good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Re Rate: Pours a copper color with a very lively white head and nice lacing. Lots of fruity tones, spices, yeast, and hops. Taste of fruits, spice, caramel, citrus, and champagne. Lots of flavor here; underappreciated when I first tried this...

Enjoyed this beer, but again, is not the perfect beer that others claim. Good mouthfeel, with a hoppiness that complements the maltiness nicely. Won’t drink regularly due to cost, however.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 This brew pours deep, burnt brown color w/ a full, semi cremy froth. Posseses a rather impressive retention in the head compartment and recedes to reveal a thick, lasting lace. Aromas of a malted bamboo earthiness. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers to include a few Champagne streamers. Bold and very flavorful. Big and malty w/ only a mild sweetness. Strong flavors of drunken brownies, dark fruits, a hint of mint, tobacco, and green dark wood. Theres a persistant peachpit bittering that emerges early on. The finish is long and bittered well. Superb balance in such a strong and complex brew. Highly recommended.

As it states a copper beer with a nice creamy head but quite small. Some caramel and toffee flavours detected in what is a great tasting beer.

The filterless nature of this brew is probably one of the most interesting things about it. Smooth, clean, easy to drink with just a hint of bitterness. This is a good dinner beer to augment a nice steak, although, a very rich meal would probably bland out the taste of the beer.

I have never enjoyed ales of any flavor until now. All I remember of it was how smooth it was and how tall the head was. Gota try that Blue now.
