Glouglouburp (5998) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2007
Clear ruby body topped by a very small white head. Syrupy body with sweet cherries swimming in a brown-sugar cake. Herbal notes adds to an otherwise rather simple sweet beer. While drinking it I knew my taste buds were in familiar territories but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Then a friend came to the rescue. Dr Pepper. Yes, that’s it. Overall I wasn’t too found of this Dr Pepper flavoured-beer although I actually like Dr Pepper. I also like milk but…

Light aroma and a quickly dieing head. Carbonated beer with a spicy flavor of cherry soda and watermelon.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2006
dark mahogony in color w/ a small tan head and some nice lacing. Smells of baby powder and some light malts, very odd, a few other light spices in the back. Palate is full and fairly well carbonted. Flavor is odd, the baby powder wont go away, fairly sweet some odd spices in the finish. Not something i can drink.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2010
2009 22oz. bottle. Pours red/copper/brown with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly to a light ring. Very little lacing. Sweet aroma, caramel malt, vanilla, some dark fruit. Flavor is underwhelming, some black cherries, caramel malt, vanilla, spice, but rather weak and watery. Somewhat medicinal. Mouthfeel is low on carbonation, pretty thin, yet manages to get a bit sticky long after the finish. A fair amount of local hype on this one and I was not terribly impressed for my first one. Coulda got an ’08, but I will check it out again next year.

Bomber, it’s got the southern tier Creme burlee flavor. Luckily it’s just a significant flavor not utter dominance. Dry finish, thin body. Lame brew

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2013
Bottled. An amber beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and vanilla, leading to a dry finish.

Rich maroon brown with a fluffy beige head. Smell is sweet, malt, vanilla, cream and perhaps some butteriness or butterscotch. Kind of reminds me of scotch ales, which i’m not too keen on. Taste is smooth vanilla, cream and caramelly malt. A good beer, in all honesty, but something about the strong sweet vanilla like aroma that was a bit cloying or unpleasant to me.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JAN 11, 2009
22 oz. bomber. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep copper color, with a sticky tan head. Aromas are of sweet malts, vanilla, slight spices. Flavors is strictly vanilla cream soda. Strange flavor for a beer, especially a Winter ale. Medium mouthfeel, decent body. Finished sweet & sticky.

Wasn’t a huge fan of this one though it came out of a single batch cask and may have just been an off batch. The maltiness of this one seemed to beer overpowered by the whisky aroma. Reminded me of a watered-down boiler-maker. I will most likely try this one again and re-rate it.
