KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 30, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 12 oz. Bottle: Pours a deep, dark brown color, with a long lasting (fades into a whispy ring) off white head, apx. two-three fingers tall. The aroma is of bread, malts, plums, syrup. the tastes are of plums, chocolate, yeast, a touch of alcohol, liccorice, berries, and malts. The mouthfeel is a little tart and brief, yet a lingering taste of chocolate and dates/plums. Good, but not great. Not the most complex beer I’ve had, but definitly pretty tasty.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Murky dark brown. Scent of butterscotch, wood, maple, brown sugar and caramlized plums. Very bright and fresh taste up front, lacking depth but still very enjoyable - flavors of wood, plums, brown sugar and some chewy bready flavors. A beer that could be a brown ale and could be a scotch ale and could be a strong ale - it’s an interesting multi-style hybrid that has it’s own place. It’s good to find beer like this.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2006
Unclear brown with a tan head. Sweet and sour fruit and malt aroma with citrus, orange and pineapple and a hint of liquorice. Quite sweet flavor of chocolate and a bit of hop. Foamy mouthfeel. Ordinary but frinkable.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2005
A nice hops flavor to this one, a bit of pepper, and enough malt flavor, creates a well balanced brew, I could drink this one everyday! Thanks Secret santa!

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured dark clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, tart berry fruit and a hint of mustiness. Fair hit of alcohol off the top, then the sweet light roast malt enters, balanced by fruit, average somewhat bitter linger. Very pleasant - average body, a little flat but I guess that’s the style.

GTown (127) - New York, USA - NOV 20, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2005 Pours dark amber with thin head. Malts and sweetness and just the right amount of fruit taste. Well balanced beer from a fine NY brewery. Sit UBU sit.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
hops and yeast in aroma. Some bitterness and roastiness and nuttiness. So complexity and higher alcohol is assimilated. Amber colour. Medium mouthfeel.

Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2005
An unclear amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and hints of wheat. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, wood, and fruit.

MarkBarnes (375) - Waterville, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2006 Oct. 3, 2005 - 12 oz. bottle. A hearty Autumn/Winter brew. Sweet flavor is of red wine, smoke, fruit -- balanced nicely by a strong hop presence. The higher ABV is noticeable, but warms without overpowering the brew. Will be having this one again over the Winter, I’m sure. Re-rate on Dec. 29, 2006: Bumped up the aroma score from "4" to "7". This is definitely more enjoyable in a Trappist glass.

draught. ruby-mahogany coloured body with a small white head. mild English soapy hops and caramel malts. flavour is sweet and yeasty with lots of malt and soft bitterness. cookie sweetness in the finish. nice.
