YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Said to be made from a recipe that predates hops and uses herbs and spices instead. Opaque dark brown with little head. Lots of spice and fruit and herbs to the nose and in the flavor. Some woodsy tones. Very unusual but also very good. Recommend it be given a try.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 7, 2004
Reddish brown color with a slightly sticky, tangy feel to it. even w/ all the herbs, etc, you can't tell it has that many different ingredients

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Pours a murky copper brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet earthy cork and spice aroma. Body starts lightly caramely sweet with a dry spiced earthiness to it. Finishes warming and malty sweet. A very nice and well balanced traditional ale.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2003
this ruby red winter beer is made with a special ancient herb in Dutch called Gachel. This give the beer a nice spicy taste. This is by far the best beer this brewery produces, it's not so watery as the other ones. It's well presented in a kind of winegoblet, the foam is quite steady and it's good drinking.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2003
This beer has a red-brown body - hue apperance and a fine white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a low carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet-bitter.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Pours a reddish brown hue. Small light tan head. Sweet medicinal herbal sour nose. Malts everywhere, fruity, plum, pear, bogmyrtle is evident throughout, light to medium bodied, lightly syrupy, finishing with an alcohol, medicinal sweetness. Different, no doubt.

Bottle. A cloudy brown color with a tan head. A beautiful spiced aroma. It builds and builds and then burst forth in a firey alcohol finish. The aroma has a rich malt core with dark fruits (dates, blackberries). Sweet, earthy malts, layered spices, nuts and a bit of liqorice in the flavor. A pleasant surprise.
