UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 Pours the color of raisins with a wispy white head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin white film over the top. Very malty with hints of candied sugar and dark fruits. Pleasant bitter in the finish. Definitely serve at the recommended temps as it makes the vinous flavors explode.

Stew41 (1907) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 9, 2006
Thin spotty head, coffee coloured. Very thick lacing. Rustic malty nose with roast and chocolate notes; very likeable. More strong malts and roast in the palate but much more elegant than the nose suggests. Well balanced, easy to drink and almost dry stout like in style.

outerupt (133) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Pleasant. Poured from a small bottle. Light brown with a fresh malty nose of dark brown sugar and heavily toasted bread. The flavor is very light and easy with just a bit of coffee on the finish and the faintest touch of seasoned leather. All in all a nice light brown.

Fukito (1016) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 7, 2006
May 2006 - Bottle Pours a nice red-brownsih colour with some ruby hues although it remains traslucent. There is a nice rocky beige head that leaves some lacings as I empty my chalice. Aroma is of dried fruits, plums. Taste is fruity, with a touch of alcohol burnt, easygoing, but I think it would gain from some complexity. Mouthfeel is medium to thik, creamy and silky. Aftertaste is short but intense. A nice sipper one!

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2006 750 ml bottle stating Best Before 10/28/01. I think they were really telling the truth on this one. No carbonation and it felt soured. I saw it in the store and I had to get it since it was at least 5 years old, but it didn?t really age well. Not a fair review of the product. It still was drinkable, though it was a shadow of a beer. Will re-rate with a beer from this millenia.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Dark reddish brown with a rocky head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some bready malts and yeast. Subtle dried fruit flavors are interspersed with more sweet malt and spicy flavors. Alcohol is present, but not overpowering and makes this easy to drink.

I didnít like it the first time I tried it. I think it must have just not been the kind of beer I wanted that day. I have tried it since, and I like it. Itís a real sipper, enjoyed in small parcels on the toungue.
