Cletus (6331) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Pours ruby red with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt, spicy, some caramel, some chocolatey hints. Tastes of roasted malt, clove, some spicy hints, dark fruit on the finish.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 9, 2009
12oz bottle (variety pack). Pours a dark amber brown with a three finger rocky ivory head. Smell is a toffeeish malt, with an underlying roastiness and light spice. The taste is malt and caramel with a coffee background. It is very smooth with very little aftertaste or bitterness.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Medium brown with an enormous rocky, off-white head. Heavgy, sweet aroma of pineapple and banana, along with a slight clove spiciness. Cloyingly sweet flavor of honey. Tiny bit of hoppy dryness in the finish is not hearly enough to balance the sweetness. Medium body, lots of carbonation.

Nejhleader (1183) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2005
ah good stuff light brown colour, small head hints of toffee/coffee, seemed a tad thin, but fairly good stuff

ABUSEDGOAT (2277) - California, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Retired? Whatever. Pours a thin brown body with a nice head. Aroma is malt dominated with caramel and toffee. Maybe a hint of bread. Flavor is the same and it’s pretty thin. Where are the hops? I still enjoyed it but it’s nothing exciting.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2005
Hazy mahogany glow offering a vast off-white head. Sweet malty nose of mature berries, raisins and apples. Fruited dark malts linger along the roasty ones, procuring a nutty and brown sugar sweet feel that is taken aback by a considerable metallic side, contrasting with the sweet finish there while the little hop character there is stays shy and stale. Medium bodied, soft carbonation for DeGroens. Maybe not in top shape either.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2005
This is okay. I kind of has a malty chocolatey finish and for some reason it was half the variety case (maybe they wanted to dump it before retiring it). Aroma has caramel and malt tones and the taste has the same with a wet finish to it. Its not a spectacular beer but I don’t mind drinking a lot of this one as there is nothing I find repellent here. I don’t detect the sourness that previous raters noted any where or any acidity. This must be a pretty good bottle. (Brewskies in East Stroudsburg)

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2005
This is an ok Dunkel. Malty, caramel, and nutty flavors. Finishes smooth, dry, and clean.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2005
This one poured all head (6 fingers of head compared to 1 finger of liquid). Poured a dark, cloudy brown color with the humongous tan head. Aromas of yeast, dark fruits, bread and earth. Bready, malty and spicy tasting. Slightly sour. May be past its prime.

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Pours a medium amber with a huuge, rocky tan head. The foam takes up about 95% of my DFH shaker. Aroma is malty and a bit stale, with a bit of a smoky character. Flavor is rather subdued but pleasant, quite sweet with some caramel and a bit of of chocolatiness. An easy drinker.
