thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Bottle (thanks Tom from Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia) Pours a deep brown with a nice creamy head of somewhat decent height. Aroma is very malty with notes of chocolate, vanilla, lemon, and bubblegum. Flavor is the same, with a subtle and sudden complexity assaulting your taste buds. What an amazing surprise.

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a nice slightly off-white foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt contains some dry fruits characteristics which are quite enjoyable. Taste is also dominated by some dry fruits characteristics with some nice candi sugar notes. I didn’t notice that much of a hoppy presence as I was expecting but nonetheless I very much enjoyed the experience. Full body with some great carbonation and no alcohol was detectable.

FatPhil (9521) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 7, 2007
330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Sweet malty taste but a bit alcoholic. Rye malt aroma. Fairly bitter. Not bad at all, but hard to find anything particularly special in it.

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2007
Bottled at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Red-brown, thick beige head. Aroma is not too good, and it "pours down" the overall grade of the beer. Very sweet taste, sulphur-phosphour in the finish.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - SEP 16, 2007
@ GJBF 2007. Another suprise at the festival. Aroma of berries, sweet malts, toasted, some alcohol and light floral. Flavor was outstanding. Fruity, spices, berries, sugary malts, cherries, light bitterness, and an alcohol finish. Dry, syrupy body. Really outstanding. refreshing.
