madsberg (10107) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2005
Bottled: Burgundy coloured. Brown fluffy head. Fruity, sweet and very chocolatish aroma. Light alcohol, some spices, fruit and the chocolate again dominates the flavour. Ends on a dry light alcoholdense note. Overall the alcohol is very well hidden. First beer of 2005 for me. It had all I could ask for.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 27, 2004
Respectable looking ale, nice set of colours, and creamy head. Refreshing nose, full of flavours. Medium bodied ale, with some fruity undertones, plenty of warming alcohol and black chocolate. Sound and looks better on paper than really is.
