No#66. I have a feeling that this was aged, but im not sure. Aroma is strange, some feet coming off it, with a decent amount of both malt and hops in there. Taste is malty but has a strange bitter herbal taste going on. Different beer, intresting, but not exactly a serious winner.

rlgk (15303) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2005
Nice amber, offwhite head. Grassy aroma, clove, pine needles, malty and nutty with some almond. Spicy and very hoppy flavor. Very strong without too much alcohol coming through. Spicy hoppy finish with some more alcohol showing.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2005
UPDATED: APR 12, 2007 Poured into my Chimay glass. Deep mahogany red. Beige head. Aroma: Banana, chocolate, alcohol, cloves, some malt, fantastic hops, Seville orange, pears. Flavour: Almost harsh, bitter, really not sour, some sweetness, a bit mineral. High carbonation, mighty - almost fluffy. Later on I have noticed tonnes of exotic ruit and complexity, this is a REALLY good beer.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2005
A Mes rate: Bottle @ PBF. Dark, almost black or the deepest deepest red. Thin covering of foam that lasts well. Feels like there is too much carb but its over before it gets annoying. Caramel and coffy with cream. Long almost mango finish. Pretty good stuff.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 Bottle... RBSG2005... Very dark, clear, burnt orange ale with a large, frothy, beige head. The aroma offers notes of sassafras, caramel, brown sugar, dried plum and chocolate... along with a few other goodies I can’t identify. The malty flavor is of caramel, cocoa, fescue, raisins and cola with just a tiny pinch of salt. Medium to full-bodied and fizzy. Finishes up a touch alcoholic and bone dry.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Deep brown-ruby, puffy mocha head. Nose of light funk, chocolate-cola sweetness, root beer. Flavor has sweet chocolate, a bit of barnyard, bit of cream de minte in its spiciness. Quite malty, very interesting stuff.
