Dirty hazy brown color, sweet malty nose. Same on taste with rye tones. Very intense. Ok but not that thrilling.

Pours with a large head. Malty doughy nose with some berry. Hazy brown color. Some syrup and toffee. Grainy and a little a nutty. Dry gritty end. Thinish. Interesting, raw and rough around the edge. Worth a try.

Thanks to clarkvv for this beer: pours a dark red/brown that is hazy with lots of yeast particles. Aroma: fruity, wood, earth, honey, yeast. Tastes excellent for a total lack of hops - honey, yeast, caramel malt, fruit, some spice, sweet but not too much sweetness. I enjoyed the nose on this beer more than the taste, but it opened my eyes to how good beer can be without hops.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 03 or 04 bottle, not sure. Pours well enough, cherry reddish brown, some dark yellow tinges good off white head. Bottle conditioned or heavily unfiltered. Aroma gets better as it warms, brown sugar, caramel malt. Flavor is so mellow, soft and sweet. Chewy caramel meets raisins, dates and light fruits. Not a tremendous amount of complexity. Some yeast character. Lots of spices right away, but mellows out to just a good old drinkable malty lager. Dark, rich, yet very drinkable and good. Love this brewery after only 2 beers. (though they could get a bit more adventurous and branch out from the chewy caramel malt/browns sugar base). Solid though and would drink again soon.

Pffft! Lots of carbonation in the bottle, cloudy orange-brownish body, good-sized off-white head, sweet and sour fruity nose with a lot of yeastiness. Highly carbonated, yeasty, malty, fruity finish, lingering bitterness, a bit of spice.

Dark reddish brown with a lingering head. Aroma is malt and yeast. Flavour is lightly malted lightly smoked and body is too thin.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2004
Murky brown, beige head. Beaucoup sediment. Foul aroma. Too yeasty? Flavor was difficult to describe because it was not enjoyable. Just wanted to get it over with. Try Jopen Koyt. Much better drink from this brewery.

dark ruby amber with thick long lasting white head. lots of sediment wheat yeast in the nose. Lots of wheat in the taste. Not so much malts. Thin overall, malts in burps and back of the mouth.

A mild bock with some light sourness. Had on tap at Spuyten Duyvil, Brooklyn. Tasty light fruit notes with little hop essence. Some chocolatiness. Enjoyable.
