Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2006
BCA (from Bitter virtue). Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet. There wasnt that much of interest here.

Nuffield (4082) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2002
Reminiscent in many ways of a Belgian ale (though not in texture, in which it is much more an English ale), but with a lot of intrusive elements. Syrupy, medicinal quality, showing its alcohol much more than desirable. Some hints of burnt cinnamon or other autumnal flavors. (bottle)

tommann (3374) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
275ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with no head at all. Aroma is stewed apples, yeasty caramel malt and some alcohol. Some malt to start. Sweet malty finish with medium bitterness. A bit flat and lifeless.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2003
Rusty brown colour with absolutely no head. Sweet floural aroma. The taste was sweet initially, then sour, then followed by bitter, but in the end all three were dominated by alcohol. I like strong beers like the rest of you freaks, but his was just to obvious it didn't make for pleasant drinking. Finally it had a savory finish to the palate.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Dark orange - brown color. Spare head. Cherry band aid nose. Hoppy and grassy taste, medium lasting - kind of thin bodied. RERATE: 7;3;4;2;9 Hazy orange, no head, liveley carbonation. Banana and vanilly nose, very doughy, sweet yeast. Suprisingly strong alcohol, cinnamon and pepper taste but the bad thing seems to be an overdose of nutmeg which lays over you tongue and leaves a long lasting terrible aftertaste.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2005
Bottled (Wobble In A Bottle). Deep brown liquor with an orange-red tint and a virtually non-existant head. It has very little aroma and a vinous body that explodes into a warming brandy and grapefruit finish.
