Bottle shared with GregClow, Jerc, Mabel, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy, courtesy of Blankboy. Nice aroma - plum, dark fruit, some malt. Dark brown, very little head. Taste is complex - dark fruit and plum again, but also some malt sweetness. Wonderful medium mouthfeel. Complex. Outstanding.

First, I must say, I got two bottles from set up trade and as an extra in another trade so I do not really know who exactly gave me this bottle, perhaps it is pantanap or wetherel. Pours dark brown color with thin but creamy tan head. Dark fruit, plum and raisin aroma. Fruity and toffee flavors comes at first with some roasted notes playing in the background. I perceived some sweetness although I have the impression of a light-medium body and silkiness in the mouthfeel. Like many people here I did not get any Brett at first but I must admit I got some reminiscence of brett towards the end of the tasting. Big thanks to pantanap and wetherel and I will keep the second bottle to see how the Brett evolves.

Bottle. Ratebeer Christmas in Oshawa, December 2007. "They can pry it from my cold dead hands"... No? Moving along. Hazy dark brown body with a small creamy tan head. Sweet malty aroma, accents of caramel, roast nuts, and mild fruit (7+). Sweet malty flavour, light spice in the finish, alcoholic undertones. Pepper? Average to medium palate. (3+) Very nice, but there is something that makes me like it, not love it.

Noogfest Thanks to Shp555 for bringing this one to share. Pours muddy brown with a tan head. The aroma is sour, fruity and malt based. Sweet fruity start, dry finish. A bit thin bodied. A touch more complexity would make this a standout.

Pours out dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of raisin, fig, plum, date, candi sugar and slight alcohol. Taste is complex, with a smooth, well balanced mouthfeel. Raisin, with fig, semi-sweet chocolate, some other earthy/spice notes throughout.

750ml bottle from Naven (thanks!). Pours a dark brown with an average size beige head.Nose is quite boozy with lots of yeasty phenols and some fruity esters that are barely perceptable under the alcohol. It pretty much tastes like it smells but also with some raisin, figs, chocolate and licorice. Also some earthiness in the aftertaste that borders on woody elements and some barely noticeable smokiness underneath as well....The body is medium and the carbonation is medium as well. I think this one may have been much better after a year or so, as it is quite rough around the edges.

TomDecapolis (4518) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours a deeper brown with amber notes and a medium bubbly/creamy tan head that left some lacing. Aroma of ginger, dark fruits, raisins, malty sweetness, tropicla fruits, other various spices. Flavors were a mix of the same. Lots of dark fruits and seems like ginger up front.
