Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Red orange, small head. Rich dark malty and sweet aroma, slightly skunked. Taste is funky and dark, certainly metallic throughout. Bitter finish, somewhat repulsive.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Easter Sunday tasting w/ Ernest, Aubrey and Brian. Ruby color. Pleasantly aromatic malty aroma with glimmers of caramel mainly, along with slight fruit and a touch of hops. The taste is fairly mild yet completely non -offensive. Pleasant caramel taste.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Deep amber with an apple glow. Light, syrupy and tingly carbed. Body is on the light side. Toasted toffee. Flowery, grassy hops with a moderate bitterness.

Pleasantly surprised by this one. Has a dark copper appearance, with a thin, but persistent off-white head. Aroma has some malty bittersweet chocolate notes with a coffee backend. Flavor has some of the same notes with a slight vegetable-like essence underlying it. Decent medium thick mouthfeel - I would classify this more as a dunkel than a Marzen.

Aurelius (4229) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Fizzy with a thinnish body. Goes flat quickly. Toasty flavors, with a clear light brown sugar flavor, medium light sweetness. Solid aroma of dark lager. Mild, coffeeish bitterness in the sweetish finish -- which starts off nice, but goes a little watery. Some stray woody floaties in the green bottle. Not bad, drinkable.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2004
Orange-brown color with a taller cream colored head. Roasted grain aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Thinner slick feel. Dry toasty flavors with a late astringency that distracts significantly. Great aroma and appearance killed somewhat by a late strong astringency.

jimhilt (2412) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pours with a two-fingered off-white head that fades quickly and leaves some lace. Medium carbonation and light bodied. Amber color. Nose is slightly malty. Starts with a good mix of malts and hops, finishes sweet and watery. $1.75 for a 12oz green bottle.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Interesting. I never know what to expect with exotic foreign beers. 11.16oz green bottle with lots of funny lettering. Pours a light brown color with a decent head that didn't last long and left no lacing. Smells of caramel malts with a hint of hops. Tastes grainy and almost astringent. Caramel is on the forefront. Hops are present. Not very complex. Mouthfeel is fuller than most Darks and on the creamy side. Drinkability is better than most Darks I've had. Not a bad beer at all, and kinda cool to try one from a country not known for its beers.

caramel and skunk aroma, looks like my urine after bonnaroo, cardboardy and dry, rubbery, bitter finish, like drinking a box factory
