Draught. Pours a deep copper colour with a pretty fantastic lacy off-white head. Fruity aroma, some forest fruit, toffee and rum... sounds great but really is nothing too special. I liked the mouthful though, medium body and well balanced sweetness. Flavours of fruity esters and chocolate nuttiness, quite good really. Finish is medium length and carries a little of the sweetness.

Large beige head with a load of lacing atop a burgundy colored body. Yeasty, dried fruit aroma with hints of anise. Sweet malt taste, caramel, toffee and ripe fruit. Medium bodied mouthfeel, but overly carbonated. Lingering finish

Pours deep brown-red. The aroma is tart and sour. Phenomenal appearance. Very sweet taste, with a hint of chocolate. Nice palate finish. I would drink this if I were eating some hefty dinner items.

Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Pours dark ruby brown with a fairly thin head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Taste is malty and slightly fruity. There is a strange finish that I can’t really discern. Overall a pretty good beer.

sinte (337) - Udine, ITALY - JAN 30, 2007
Bottle 0.33L. Dark brown body with a medium, creamy, light-brown head; mostly lasting with a good lacing. Moderate-to-heavy malty aroma with light hoppy and yeasty character; notes of pear. Heavy sweet flavour with an acidic note; in the finish a light-to-moderate bitter note also appears; peppery feeling on the tongue. Medium body with an oily texture; lively carbonation; light alcoholic feeling in the finish. Good beer for meditation or with a flavoured meal.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2007
11.2 oz. Bottle. Good fruity plumb and cherry wine aroma. Amber body and foam gusher after removing cap. Big off white head that settled to like a manhole cover on top of body. Flavor was yeasty bread and alcohol. Mild fruity flavors present, was looking for more fruit from what I got from aroma. Decent brew.

jason (1681) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Bottle from Stoutlover, thanks! Pours a clear amber body with decent thin sized head and little carbonation. Aroma is of candied fruit, plums, and cherries. Taste is the same. Slightly sweet and smooth with a thin mouthfeel. Not bad.
