Skyview (5172) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Shared by akevitt, pours a clear dark reddish amber brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissolves toa lumpy foamy head and good lacing. Aroma of spicey and peppery chocolate banana bread, with other scents of yeast, caramel and some pineapple. Taste is medium bodied, well carbonated, with a slight metalic texture. Palate has some roasted malt and banana flavors. Finish is well balanced with a slight caramel aftertaste.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2007
Thanks to akevitt for sharing. Light brown color with faint anise in the spicy nose. The star anise is there in the body but doesn’t dominate or cause offense. Yeasty character and plenty of spice and some chocolate.

Pours a very dark brown with a nice light tan head. Amazing nose with hints of banana, toffee, anise, chocolate. Good medium to heavy carbonation with a little alcohol kick, as well as some sweet smokey toffee, anise, and great spicy yeast flavors.

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2007
Bottle. Chestnut body that looks quite clear, topped by a big, beige, lasting head. The aroma has lots of cellar, dominating the experience, and is backed by dried fruits and some hops. There’s too much cellar in the flavor as well, but it’s not as heavy as in the aroma. It’s followed by dried fruits, sugar, some tobacco and wee hints of alcohol. Sweet, warming, dusty, full-bodied mouthfeel, and finishing with raisins and sweetness. There was so much cellar present in this one that I had to double check the BB-date, but that was ok. Yet it is a decent beer. (070528)

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Interesting. On the label it said this contained star anise and orange peel, but no one seemed to notice. Hmmm... It pours a dark mahogany highlighted in ruby and sports a fizz-based rocky beige head. There is some licorice in the nose, and the smell increases as the drink warms. The aroma also has dark stone fruits, molasses, lightly roasted malts, and a touch of toffee. (Didn’t catch the orange peel.) The mouthfeel is light and creamy, almost fluffy. The flavor is a smooth blending of lightly roasted malts, a quiet floral bitterness, molasses, nuts, and a subdued anise. Pretty good ale.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2007
Bottle. Moderate malty, light bread and alcohol, molasses, a hint of coffee. Huge rocky off-white head, fully lasting. The body is black. The flavor is light bitter, average duration. Medium body, dry & quite creamy texture, soft carbonation. A great beer, superb balance between the alcohol and the taste.
