La Roja, an artisan amber ale brewed in the Flanders tradition. Deep amber with earthy caramel, spice and sour fruit notes developed through natural barrel aging. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and blended from barrels ranging in age between two and ten months. Truly an ale of distinction.

Deep amber color, almost brown, tan head. Interesting, malty, spicy, mild funk, anise. Medium bodied, somewhat alcoholic, especially for only being 7.2%. Kind of a strange beer, but I dug it for the most part.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours hazy orange/red with a short off white head. Interesting nose of rubbing alcohol, toast and nut. Chocolate, brown bread, toasted grain, burnt caramel in the back of the mouth, and some toasted butter. Really quite warming. Nice.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2012 2102-05-04. Lightly hazy dark dark amber, small beige head. 3+ lightly funky lemony fruity character, lightly musty. 7+ Flavour is similar, light sourness with a mild lemon character. Smooth average to light bodied palate. Quite quaffable. 7/3/7/3/15-16 Bottle from Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor

2005-xx-xx. Amber brown body, off white head. (3+) Alcoholic aroma contains sweet malt and something not quite brown sugar like. Sweet indiscriminate malt in the flavour has a touch of caramel and finishes quite dry. Average palate, with a lingering alcoholic finish. 6/3/6/3/12 Bottle shared at RBSG 2005.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 13, 2005
Black tea like tone with rather average looking top. Strong alcoholic nose well rounded malts, touch of vanilla and woody scent. Flavour: plenty of vanilla up front, sweet woody feel, malts. Warming, alcohol works here as a wrap.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Couleur cuivrée, faible mousse beige pale. Puissantes vapeurs d’alcool laissent s’échapper des parfums de vanille, de forte levure, de vieux bois et de bonbons aux fruits synthétiques. Les flaveurs anisées, de liqueur forte et de bois sont brèves et repoussées par l’alcool. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince à moyenne, faible carbonatation. RBSG2005

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 750mL bottle. Rusty orange color with some brown hues as well, clear body with the scent of festive ginger, orange cream, pumpkin spice (is it because of the name?), black cherries, semi-milky and chalky palate. Finishes slightly acidic but not overpowering, with a sharp alcohol (cider-like) bite at times, finally ending with an odd brown sugar coating. An interesting beer that smells fantastic but falls apart on the back of the tongue.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Sludge-tastic brown with plenty of chunks. If it didn’t have that thick greyish head, It would have passed off as raw sewage. Serves me right for procrastinating and ending up with the tail end of the bottle. A very progressive aroma that alternated yeasty bread, spice, alcohol vapors and caramel malt. Taste was just a round, enveloping rush of booze, not much hops or yeast that I was expecting. Mouthfeel was quick and acrid like a shot of vodka.

RBSG 05 Murky amber pour. Interesting aroma of hard candy with malt and caramel. Very good flavor of hard candy, caramel and malt. The candy reminds me of those different shapes and colored candy that my folks used to buy for Christmas and after a while those candies would get all stuck together... The body is light to medium, the texture creamy and oily, the carbonation is moderate to lively. Very good stuff.
