jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Well, calling it Dark Chocolate kind of ruined it for me right off the bat, as it set the stage for a sweet malty chocolatey beer, and that’s not what I got at all. Dark ruby brown body wiht a good sized beige head. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of sourness. Malty with a dry bitter finish. Decent palate, fairly effervescent.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Slightly citrus and barnyard on the nose, slight chocolate/ citrus finish w/ horseblanket on tongue. Major effervesence and a rich color w/ really good head and minor lacing.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Pours a tall frothy light tan head on a dark brown body. Nice fruity aroma with malt notes. Sweet, full and complex. Flavor is also mostly sweet with a good bitterness behind. Malt and fruit with a roasted tone and notes of hop and spices. Sharp taste but still a soft mouthfull. Warming from the alcohol. A very well balanced and tasty beer!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2005 Dark burgundy color. Small, compacted, light mocha colored head. Lightly aromatic, strange, funky aroma with dark, roasty tones. Hazelnut flavors abound with light chestnut flavors along with roasty and toasted tones and a touch of raisins. Well hidden alcohol and nice mouthfeel.

radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
Celebration November 2004 at CapFlu’s place. Dark brown in colour with a long lasting head. Aroma was yeasty, some chocolate, malt, slight sourness, cherries and grapes. Flavour was yeasty, musty, malty, some dark chocolate, slight sweetness. Large body, high carbonation, alcohol is not noticable. Finishes with a light alcohol warmth. Beautiful beer, thanks for bringing this muzzlehatch.

jerohen (2067) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2004
Let me first say the label looks fantastic, very classy. Dark coloured, lasting head. Malty, spicy and yeasty aroma, some alcohol. Dry malty flavour. Well brewed, but nevertheless none of these brut beers could really impress me so far. And it’s pretty damn expensive.
