wxman (1417) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2011
Pours a clear copper color with a full orange/tan head. Aroma is bread dough and hops. Sweet caramely malt flavor along with a little burnt sugar and lots of robust hoppiness. This is quite good, but I think I’d call it an imperial IPA.

Camons (5855) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2011
Bottle @ Hotelroom, Denver. Pours very dark reddish golden with a nice offwhite head, lots of small bubbles heading for the surface. Aroma of caramel, toffee, marcipan, citrusslike friut, orangepeel. Taste is sweet bready malt, caramel, lots of sweet dark friut like plums and raisins,fresh hops with flavors of grapefruit, orange. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Very nice fruity and hoppy BW, and for the price a sure try. Ill try and get hold of some more, and check the aging potential. 130311

Light hop and grain smell. Amber with wonderful legs. Malty taste with woody hop bite.Not too sweet. Very good but young. Bottle says Two-’Aught-11 so I plan on keeping a bottle around for a year or two. Hopefully I can wait that long to try it again.

A nice barley wine style ale. Dark brown sugar and pitted fruits warm the palate. Pours dark orange brown.

Nalu (216) - Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2010
2007 version in 2010. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a scant, off-white head. Cotton candy start, medium body, no hops, chocolate middle and finish. Lightly carbonated. Has aged into sweetness, would be interesting to be able to compare this brew fresh to what it is like now.
