Light amber in color with a large off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malt,subtle roast and sweet. Flavor is sweet ending dry, with smoke,roast,caramel and a good overall malt presence with a touch of acidity.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2005
Deep amber color, tan head. Full on malt, actually a bit one dimensoinal with it. Mild fruit and some chocolate. Pretty full bodied for being a smaller beer. Not bad.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Deep rich malt nose that ends up feeling rather one dimentional.. Chocolate, very rich. More alcohol in the flavor than there should be at this percentage. Fruity, tangy finish.

Aurelius (4176) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2005
A great dark malt character without being ham-handed. Mildly smoky roast ale aroma. Bronzy brown, like soda where the ice has melted. Good bottle, decent label. Dryish. Edgy acidity without being too strong, cocoa, parched roastiness. Long coffeish finish. Some candy flavors, but definitely not sweet - cocoa, toffee, some diacetyl. I really appreciate my buddy sneaking this back into the states from the CAMRA festival in Hove. Medium weight. I dug it.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - MAR 17, 2005
CASK: Slight sulfury nose, ruddy copper color, low head. Sweet caramelly malt with low bitter that is slightly drying. Odd British-style ale that didn’t quite do it for me.

YogiBeera (2475) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Cask - I did not like this one. Little layer of a head on the amber colored brew. Band aid nose. Clay toffee taste, stale.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Cask. Lots of bread/coffee/caramel, nuts, alcohol tingle at end, soft finish. On cask. Very drinkable. Nice.
