Deimos (81) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 26, 2004
Good aroma, not much head which leaves quickly. Malt flavor but not much of it A smooth taste but not much finish. It’s OK but I wouldn’t get it again.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Amber with off white head...smells of fruit and doughnuts...definately malty but no real "hook" of you will...I could pick it up or put it down...

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Deep ruby amber with a small, very quickly diminishing off white head. Aroma with lots of dried fruit, plum, cherry, raisin and red apple, toffee, and bread. Medium slightly creamy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor just doesn’t compare to the nice aroma. It is a confused mixture of dried fruit, plum, apple, cherry, raisin, roast, caramel, milk chocolate, and bread with a hint of pine. On the cusp of being very good, but not quite there. Decent.

Deep amber in color with a small off-white head.aroma of sweet malt,caramel and toffee.Sweet malt flavor with caramel,tofee and butterscotch dominating.

shadey (1849) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2004
This was my first Flying Dog brew... Nice dark amber color, smooth on the toungue and a nice flavor. I could drink a lot of this.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2004
Pours with a slight head that doesn't last; slighty spicey, doughy malt nose; more aroma than flavor, not much in the realm of complexity, some carmel maltiness, very slight dark fruit flavors; not much hoppiness involved; .....not really much of anything, really: quite smooth and drinkable for a 6.8er- not bad but nothing to write home about.

fly (1394) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Nice malts and generally good, but something doesn't add up in the mix - making it something of a muddled affair.

haddon90 (1384) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Not impressed. Maybe I had a bad keg. Decent mahagony color. No head, faint aroma. Very smooth and light. Like water. Went down toooo smooth for an English Strong Ale. Certainly nothing in comparison to the Fullers Vintage Ales.

JMerritt (1745) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Cola-like in appearance, down to the quickly rising and falling head. Spiced (cinnamon) caramel malt aroma is slightly alcoholic. Cinnamon and caramel malt flavor is a near mirror image of the aroma, except for a definite Red Delicious apple flavor in the middle/finish.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
On tap at the brewery.Amber color with almost no head. Despite the great colors and graphics of these beers, none stand out and all are average at best.
