2001 bottling. Beautiful mahogany colored beer that pours with a respectable beige head. The head fades quickly and leaves a slight lace on the glass. The aroma of this beer is superb. Caramel and a hint of spiciness, yet very refreshing and crisp. The aroma makes you feel a need to drink this beer. The first sip is packed with roasted nut and malt flavors. It has a very full mouthfeel that wraps your tongue in sweetness. Then, when you decide to finally swallow, the hops express a touch of bitterness and clean the palate. A hint of nutty sweetness slips in on the aftertaste, but it is very subtle. Subsequent sips present the same sweetness, with the hops being a little more noticable.

Big malt/hop aroma. Thick rocky head, dark ruby color. Slightly hop dominated flavor but with great fullness and a subtle ginger spiciness. Dry malt finish.

hotstuff (4066) - Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2003
A beer that poured a very small sized tan head that contained fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was hazy and carbonated with a brown hue.The nose consisted of malt, fruit, and possibly some spice.It had a slightly bitter flavor and some alcohol was noted as well.The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth, tingly and medium bodied.This beer had very little lacing.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 10, 2003
This brew poured a small head of finely sized off-white mostly disappearing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a uncarbonated hazy brown colored body. The aroma is a mild malt hop mix with few little roasted notes thrown in for variety. The mouthfeel is motth with a mild tingly to it and a noticeable mild alcohol finish. The flavor is of roasted malts and mildly hopped with some spiceyness thrown in for good measure.

BBB63 (6010) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Hazy brown hue with small head and some lacing. Very sweet and fruity nose with smoke and spicy undertones. Taste was not a spicy as expected, more along with the sweet smoky flavor, some bitter bite on the finish. Dry feel yet, strangely syrupy and soft on the palate. medium to full-bodied. Alcohol well hid. A very muddled beer, something just doesn't work right. May try it again this winter to see if it improves.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Nice brown color,small head that had some staying power.Nice malty aroma with a slight hop presence.Very malty taste,sweet at first but that fades to a some what bitter finish with an ok amount of hops.I guess i don't really notice the alcohol with all the malt it appears to stay fairly hidden.i had to go through a little trouble to get this brew.The guy had to climb into the cooler and move a bunch of cases to get at this one and needless to say he didn't look to happy.Oh well a dirty look paid off in this instance and was worth the try in this case.this was a pretty decent brew and worth the trouble to get.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2003
I want to say bitter-caramel, but I don't know if that would make sense. The malts are strong, but there's a hop/Dirt presence that brings in some balance. Lots of spice flavors in this. Has a grainy palate.
