Shag (2559) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Oh here this beer is! What a scavenger hunt to locate this one in the database. Reddish brown apperance. The aroma was very sweet consisting mostly of chocolate. The taste was a sweet and sour combo of chocolate, sour grapes, and some bitter coffee. This one wasn’t great but good nonetheless.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2004
Comes off fairly piney up front. Some chocolate in the aroma. Deep red-brown body. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, average carbonation.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Brown, nice head. Woodsy, piney earthy aroma. Spicy and earthy, with notes of black pepper and I don’t know, maybe even mushroom? Some fruits - cherry, probably. But where’s the choclate flavor? Huh? Huh?

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Pours a clear brown with a thick light tan head. Sweet and sour candi sugar aroma. Starts slightly sour and bittersweet with a smooth malty thickness. Not particulary chocolatey or roasty as the name might imply, but a nicely rounded and smooth Belgian ale. Thanks to fattyre for bringing this to the Georgia 14% gathering!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Pours a hazy brownish amber, with some very nice head retention. Spicy brown sugar aroma, vinegarish and sour at times, and when it warms you can really taste the alchohol, and a spicy brown sugar sweetness. Unfortunately the alchohol becomes too much for this one in the finish it is just way too present.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2004
Aroma is cherry, orange and chocolat. Red/brown color, beige head, very nice lace. Sweet, light bitter, wine, blackberries, coffee, quite complex, little sticky. Had a bottle which Black Chocolat on the label and 12% ABV. Why are so many breweries inconsistent with the ABV on the labels? This one beats the Brut Reserve by the way, especially in complexity.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Dark brown colour. Some malt and chocolate notes. Slightly alcoholic. Cocoa, strong, spicy. Quite interesting and special dry spicyness. Sparkling texture.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
Brown coloured. The dark chocolate notes get along well with the dark fruits. The alcohol is noticeable. Dry finish.

BeanDip (117) - Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Dark and murky. Huge rocky, pillowy tan head. Aroma is wonderful - powdery, flowery, cedar, chocolate, touch of citrus, sour, dark fruits, touch of peppery spice. Dries out on finish. Texture is rich and full and lingering. This so powdery - I love it. Touch of alcohol. Outstanding. The warmer this gets the better it is.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Deep brown color, medium brown head. Aroma of a baker’s chocolate mixed with a grassy hops flavor and brown sugar. Mouthfeel is slightly tart. Moderately dry finish, thanks TAR for a great beer.
