evergreen0199 (2080) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
I’ve had this bottle since 2001 and thought I’d check it out after 12 years ageing. A brilliant orange coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Sour fruity aroma. Tastes slightly sour, citrus fruit, apples, zesty. This aged rather well, I have another bottle in the cupboard, might keep that for another 12 years.

Travlr (12447) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2008
2006 tasted in October 2008 thanks to Greg at Birreria Paradiso. Cloudy amber, thin pale head. Aroma of clove and orange. Smooth and mellow, like orange candy. Find this one and lay it down for a few years.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Richmond Gathering. Corked and capped 750, another gem The_Beer_God busted out. Hazy golden brown with a thin, yellowy head. Funky cheese and nuts, woody and a bit yeasty. Dry finish. Nice stuff!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God at RB Richmond Gathering. Golden hazy with rocky moderatly persistent head. Carmel, honey and some cheese notes or top of some sour aromas. Sweet grainey malt with some alchohol warming then a peach/pear fruityness with a bit of carbonic bite from high carbonation. Very dry finish that ends with some alchohol warmth and peppery spiciness.

TheBeerGod (5292) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle - corked and capped. Amber pour. Small white head. Nose is funky, slightly sour with leather, bits of cheese, wood and sweat. Taste is more funky yeast notes, wood, overripe fruit, sweet malts, herbs and faint spice. Bubbly body with some dryness. Finish is more funky, yeast, light spice, mellow maltiness, wood and herbs. Again, afterwards, the sediment is shaken and poured into my glass. I get a hot chocolate looking appearance with green apples in the nose and a caramel covered green apple with the taste. Like before, this seems like a new beer once the sediment has been added.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God at the 6th Richmond Gathering. Appearance is lighter amber than the previously sampled BBB dark. Aroma and flavors are also quite similar, but this lacks the roasty notes. Drier, with a considerable amount of pepper. Dandelion notes as well. Didn’t like this version nearly as well, which surprised me.

3.9
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
UPDATED: APR 26, 2008 Sweet aroma, cherry with some grass. Light golden brown body. Very dry taste, apple accent with some fruit rind ending. A light pepper spice along with some sweet orange citrus in the ending.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 21, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 Bottle courtesy of The_Beer_God. Thanks Mike! Pours pumpkin colored with a medium sized fast disappearing head. Sour aroma with notes of caramel and spice (thyme). Taste is a little underwhelming compared to the aroma, but still a very nice light funk and dark fruits. Very complex beer and very nice.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2008
Courtesy of The_Beer_God. Cloudy orange body with a small white head. Sweet fruity aroma, light caramel, and lots of spice. Fruity, peppery flavor, caramel, and light apple. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.
