presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Sammy. Light chocolate and alcohol nose. Very dark brown with a lasting thin brown head. A bit of a dark edge to the flavour; dark chocolate and licorice. Foamy at the finish. Short abrubt finish and then a mysterious marachino aftertaste. Doesn’t go down easy, makes you pause and think about the beer.

anders37 (15535) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2007
75 cl bottle from 1992. Pours a clear amber color with a fast disappearing off-white head. Sweet malty slightly fruity yeasty aroma. Sweet malty nutty flavor with some hints of dark fruits. Malty finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pour dark (almost black), with a large light tan head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, bready yeastiness, alcohol and spices. The flavor is smooth, spices, breadiness, fruit, and black licorice. Good body, this brew seemed to get better as it warmed up.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a nice thick white head. I was surprised by this. I saw that it had orange peel in it and thought that maybe it was a strong witbier or something. It’s not. Aroma brings up raisins, brown sugar and licorice. Nutty, raisiny start to the taste with a hint of citrus and a nice dry finish. Ain’t nothing wrong with this one. It’s good!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2007
Dark brown color. Perfect foam, like the best Belgian. Interesting nose. Flavor of fruits and yeast, pure and Belgian.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2007
Bottle. Pours jet black with a nice off-white head. Aroma is metallic pear. Flavor is wild berry with sweetbread, flat grape soda; alcohol nonexistent. Watery mouthfeel. Thin mouthfeel and a bizarre mix of flavors, but it’s not bad. However, one is definitely enough.

KnutAlbert (5758) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2007
33 cl bottle from the Cracked KEttle, Amsterdam. Dark brown, almost black beer with a firm head. Brewed with candy sugar and spices. A full, well balanced flavour. Some roeasted malt, some burned sugar, but there is a nice bitterenss, too. The spices? Ginger and cinnamon blend in with the sweetness. And there is a warming aftertaste. Pleasant for a nightcap with a good book. I wouldn’t mind having a few of this in my cellar.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Dark brown pour with 3-finger tan head that reappears with each repour. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, toffee, figs, raisins, berries. Complex aroma. The taste is very dark fruity, with notes of blackberry, plum, brown sugar, caramelly malt, toffee, spices, and some funky yeasty notes as it warms. Again, a very complex taste for this one, with a rich, lively palate. This one reminds me a lot of the profiles of the greats like St. Berny, Rochy, and Westy, and perhaps I’ll set up a horizontal with this one one of these days. At any rate, find this one. It’s well worth looking for.
