Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2005
Minimal head, cola like appearance. Carmel and fruity aroma - quite nice, not overpowering. Decent taste, but kind of innocuos. A bitter tasete left behind, but not the sort of hoppiness I would have expected or enjoyed. A decent but underwhelming drinking experience.

Quality beer, pours Dark,tastse like a lager. Good price-point. Pleasantly smooth with little after-taste!

shadey (1879) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2005
Dark pour with red edges. Some head. Rich smokey aroma. Nice. Light body with some nice flavors. Overall a light bodied beer with very drinkable flavor.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Amber-brown colour. Slightly toasty aroma. Flavour is toasty, chocolatey. It’s a little thin but tastes fine enough.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Can. Darker amber in color. Cola flavors along with some burnt malt little to no hop prescence. Thinner palate. Need some adjusting.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 5, 2005
Radekfest ’05. Rich amber color with a thin head. Aromas of toffee and caramel. Taste is thin bodied with some roasted malts up from and no real hop bitterness. Not much going on here.

mds (2194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2005
can. dark brown body, small off-white head. strange perfumey aroma. a touch of smoke in there too. medium carbonation. the flavour was a little bit subtle and not entirely interesting. there might have been a little bit of chocolate malt in there. not too crazy about this one.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 3, 2005
I believe that this was brougt by Doug Shoemaker - thanks! Lets through a bit of ruby light. Lots of cola in the nose, a little earthy/chocolate malt. Flavor is watery dark roasted malt. Slightly nutty finish.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - JAN 14, 2005
1 Liter flip-top bottle. Dark red hue with a light tan head. Pleasant, malty aroma of nuts and subtle roastiness. Roasty flavor and a slight hop bitterness up front with a strong nutty middle prescene. Good balance and a nice level of bitterness on the finish. Good amount of carbonation with a light to medium mouthfeel. This sample is a very well crafted and enjoyable brew.
