erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Pours a cloudydeep amber with very little head. Aroma of sweet malt and spiced apples. Flavors are deeply malty with a vanilla note and a fair amount of cinnamon. Heavy body with no bitterness in the finish. Very interesting. Really soft on the palate.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Hazy chestnut-brown body with low carbonation and a minimal gray head. Pungent malt aroma with apple cider qualities, figs, cherries, herbs, juniper berries and cinnamon. Sweet malty, spiced apple cider flavor with low bitterness. Different and good, but not especially intriguing.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2005
An unclear brown beer with a collapsing brown head. The aroma is yeasty and quite spicy. The flavor is sweet yeasty and very spicy, though I can’t pick out what spices, the alcohol also makes its mark by burning the mouth and leaving you with a warming fealing.

Bottled. Cloudy red brown coloured with a beige head. Sweet aroma with lots of dried fruits and notes of anise. Sweet flavour of spices and dried fruits. Nice.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Pours blood red. Smells musty with notes of bananas, bread and nuts. Taste is of nuts, caramel, raisins, and cherries. Metallic finish.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2005
750 ml bottle BBD 0505. Fairly clear reddish maple, little obvious yeast cloudiness, light taupe lasting head...strongly grapy/caramel hugely sweet nose manages to allow some dried herbs and flowers (rosemary, lavender) to escape....sweet/sour stewed prunes in the body, sugariness becomes quite syrupy and somewhat cloying as it warms...very dessert-like, little yeast character. Interesting, but definitely not something I’ll drink a bottle of myself again!
