Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2007 Exploding head and look, with a sparkling that just kept on going. The aroma was sweet and sleightly vinouse, but overall very uncomplex compared to what i had expected. Somethimes it feels like these brews could use a few years in the celler.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a light tan big pillowy head. Aroma of toast, caramel, maple, dried fruit, maybe a pinch of mint. Tastes of caramel, toast, gingerbread, figs, and pears with an underlying Belgian spice (nothing inherently unique to it though). Finishes pretty dry and toasty with an earthy, almost coffee like bitterness. Overly carbonated mouthfeel, I had swirl a lot of the CO2 out of this! Otherwise, it’s medium and pretty drinkable. No alcohol presence. Good stuff which does everything well, but plays it too safe for me.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2007
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Brown, yeasty Belgian ale. Sweet malt, some fruit, slightly spicy finish. Typical.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 14, 2007
750ml from River City Cellars, Richmond. Very dark pour, somewhat unorthodox given the fruity flavors - coriander, citrus, and a hint of clove - in this one. A fairly modest mouthfeel, not quite a long enough finish and an attenuation of the flavors towards the end. Above average, but nothing spectacular.

Skinnyviking (6932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2007
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting light brown head. Hazy dark red body. Hoppy barley malt aroma with berries and a bit of cocoa plus a good deal of alcohol. Sweet and smouth caramel dominated berrues flavor without the expected alcohol which is well hidden by the sweetness of the beer. Low carbonation. Short sweet aftertaste.

thewolf (11150) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle @ YNWA. Pours a very dark brown with a small soap-bubbly beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is well spicy and lightly malty sweet and a little smokyness. Rund and full mouthfeel. Flvour has berries, a light smokyness, ginger, sweet and a light tartness at the end. Well warming. Nice brew.

badgerben (4392) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Brought by Akevitt. Dark brown color with a thick head. Nice aroma of Anise, almost like a root beer. The taste is strongly sweet malt, but stops short of being cloying or syrup-like. Licorice. Very fine.

SHIG (3561) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle: Poured a dark black/brown with a light brown head. Aroma is a fruit and citrusy. Sweet candy caramel tasted malt with a dry finish.
