Nice malty nose. Deep chestnut body with medium, but quickly diminishing head. Decent caramel malt character throughout with bit of hops at finish. Not bad.

FLAVOR IS ROBUST. AFTERTASTE IS STRONG AND TART. APPEARANCE OUT OF BOTTLE IS CRISP AND CLEAR, BUT BELIES THE FLAVOR.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 23, 2001
Surprisingly, this is not terrible. Yeasty aroma hinting at coffee, followed by a yeast flavor that is accompanied by hints of prune and plums. Again, not terrible, just too yeasty and flat.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2003
I was very weary of this, but I actually enjoyed it. Goes down really smooth. Very meduim-bodied, malty and creamy at the finish, I could drink this again.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Translucent walnut color, hardly a head, faint coffee nose. Starts out with a promising malty roastiness but then it abruptly stops and gets thin and watery.
