Poured from a 12oz bottle a clear brown with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, some caramel, and just a hint of hops. Flavor was a good roasted malt with a light hop bitterness in the finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 15, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear, dark brown with a thin light beige head. Nice, strong nose, nutty chocolate, a bit smoky. Roasty malt flavor, caramel notes, hints of smoke and something like scotch. Nice balanced finish, mild floral bitter. Good brew!

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of rudolf via Secret Santa. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, some mustiness, light grass, and a hint of fruit. Pours a hazy brownish-red with a small off-white head with fair retetntion. Starts of with moderate chocolate and caramel, but quickly turns to sour fruitiness in the finish. I doubt the sourness was intended, but I actually kind of like it. Hints of nuttiness in the finish behind all the sourness. If it wasn’t for the nuttiness in the finish, it would somewhat be like a flemish sour. I’m sure this is a "bad" bottle, but I think the sourness probably makes the beer better in my opinion.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
Clear brown with a small white head. Nose is earthy, tobacco and horse. Taste is very malty that’s, sweet, woody, maybe a bit nutty and also… well… “hairy”!?! Something about the taste reminded me of wet fur or something of that nature. Decent beer but I like my beer like I like my women, not too hairy.

Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle. Gorgeous hazy dark brown body with reddish glints, low carbonation, and a thick, lasting beige creamy head. Wonderful and complex malty aroma with various hints of hops, plum, chocolate and brown sugar. Nice, sharp, and well balanced hoppy taste that hides the alcohol pretty well. It leaves a good bitter/roasty aftertaste. This is a superb Strong Ale!

Thick but dissipating head. Pours an impenetrable brown black color. Nice beer. Dark chocolate and coffee notes. Good times.

Sregnar35 (972) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 29, 2006
Tastes like a homebrew. Pours dark reddish brown, with no real head. Aroma is sweet mollasses, sugar, barley malt extract. Flavor tastes like alot of my homebrews, which aren’t great but good. Somewhat sticky feel in the mouth, interesting.

Deep copper body with a creamy beige head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, cherry, and spice. Flavor is rich, malty, and nutty with notes of cocoa and subtle roast. Finish is well-hopped with substantial stealth bitterness. Tastes likes a big, bitter American brown ale. Decent beer.
