KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Bottle. Pours a thin amber, with a tint of sandalwood. Aroma is nice and full of molasses. Head is thin, but lace clings to the glass. Interesting flavor. Hints of raisin, nut, and caramel. A molasses finish is prominent. Palate is thick and coating. Good beer.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Bottle. Poured dark brown with no head. Malty aroma with lots of nuts and some caramel. Flavor was mostly malt, with some caramel and a bit of alcohol on the finish. Very little carbonation.

JonMoore (2019) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown colour, with some ruby; it defied my best efforts to generate any sort of head. Interesting aroma; caramel, malts, chocolate & port. Very chewy and full bodied, somewhat of an oily element to the mouthfeel. Flavours are subdued versions of the aroma. Bit of a lifeless feel to this, I don’t think this is a good bottle.

growler (74) - West Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2005
bottle. Light brown with an amber hue. Nice malty aroma with just a slight hint of caramel. Creamy, malty flavor. A very decent beer. I picked this up at my favorite beer store on a whim but was very suprised by the overall taste. I’d definately do it again.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle... Crystal clear, copper ale with almost no head. Malty, nutty aroma with notes of maple syrup and tawny port and vanilla. Whisper of grapefruit. Sweet and sticky flavor. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Molasses. Finishes sweet, but fairly crisp... and clean at the wee end. A very pleasant surprise.

heemer77 (5174) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Dark ruby body with a thin head. The rich aroma is caramel and some chocolate. There is also a hint of green beans. The taste is light caramel and iced tea. Finishes with some vanilla and notes of very light coffee. The mouthfeel is chewy with a nice sticky character. This is a nice dopplebock.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2005
The smoothness of this brew belies its healthy abv. It poured a light brown with slight reddish highlights and a film for a head. The aroma is of sweet caramel and a trace of alcohol. The mouthfeel is both smooth and chewy, nicely coplementing the caramel amlt flavor. The finish is sticky and warm with alcohol. Nice.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bottle. Poured a medium sized ivory head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, transparent, carbonated, sparse lacing, and a red hue. Aroma was malty, caramel and alcohol. Sweet, malty, caramel, and a vinuous flavor. Mouthfeel was smooth. Medium body. If you like this beer style, give this one a try.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2005
0,5L, snifter. Lightly hazy brown-amber hue with a small, eggshell, foamy head. Molasses, pecan (with shell), toffee, brown sugar, whole grains, and earthy hops. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. There’s a healthy dose of nuttiness in the end. Medium body, creamy, but close to watery, texture, moderate carbonation. The bottom line is: the sweetness is muddled and without direction in the flavor.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2005
Brown, clear. Sweet malty finish. A bit thin for a Doppelbock. Toffee and nuts dominate the flavour. An average beer.
