DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 14, 2003
Nice reddish color. Strong malt aroma and flavor. Strong body, a little sweet and syrupy, dark chocolate perhaps, a bit of alcohol.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
Dark gold-amber in colour. Very low carbonation, yielding little head. Light clean malty aroma, no esters diacetyl or phenolics. Big clean malt flavour. More like a light bock in flavour in that regards. The bitterness is a little high though balances out the high malty,sweet beer well. It has a definite, silky texture that is extremely pleasant.

rauchbier (3650) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2003
Bottled. Copper orange, initialy good fluffy white head that soon drops to thin foam. Moderate condition. Low caramel and hop aromas, more caramel in the mouth but fairly understated for a biere de garde. Hop bitterness develops in the finish. Doesn’t seem like 6.5%.

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Color is the same as conditioned stoneware cookware. Large off-white head. Sweet malt aroma and taste, slightly bitter. Not bad for $2/750ml.

SilkTork (5370) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2006 June, 2003Bottle. Quite a beefy little brew. Burnished copper like a freight train. Malty fruit aroma with a healthy whiff of tin. Oaky, slightly tannic. Quite ale like in body and taste. Tasty. [3.2]
July, 2006 Can. Tastes like a strong lager with a dirty socks & brown sugar flavour. The dirty grain (licorice/coffee) flavour is the main character, the remainder of the experience is that of low budget strong lager with sweetness and fizz as the main features. [2.4]

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Nice amber color,small head that faded quite quickly.Mildly spicey,fruity aroma.Malty sweet taste with hints of spice and definate fruit tones to it.I believe this is my first in this style,so don't chastize me for being a newb.but i know what i like and thias is a pretty decent brew and even though it was costly through my sorce it was well worth the bucks.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Deep orange/copper glow. Earthy, yeasty, some hops in the nose. Simple, soft and quite enjoyable. I expected a much more complex beer, but this has some caramel flavor along with slight hoppy and fruity end. The malts are still there in the aftertaste.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 21, 2003
UPDATED: APR 21, 2004 ["champagne" bottle"]I wasnt expecting much after reading all the reviews here, but this one was sure a nice surprise, a very sweet fruity and hoppy nose, a beautiful light brown coppar color, and a nice sweet, fruity, a little hoppy taste. I want more of this...

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 16, 2003
I don't know what this stuff tastes like normally, but my bottle was mega old and way past it's prime. I hate liquor stores that don't rotate stock. The only thing I can say about the beer with any certainty is that it doesn't age well.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2003 Like nigos I read Michael Jackson's descriptions of this beer and agree with him on all counts. The only word he left out was that it had a caramel nose to match its rich amber colour. Very good lacing in the glass. A beer that I would like to keep a lot of. RE-RATE: After a bit of keeping this actually becomes a bit cloying. It deserves to be downgraded.
