2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

"okay beer. Poured a dark red/brown color with a head that left and didnít leave much lacing, nice fingers though. Aroma was of dark fruits and bitter/alochol. Flavor was much the same with a hint of sweetness, okay beer, nothing i would search out. "

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: One of the classics that Iíve had before, but not on RB. Dark, dark red. The head is thin but quite gluey. Little to no aroma but full-up alcohol-laced, cooked sugar flavors that are fully evident but not overwhelming. Bit of currant? Excellent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap & Bottle. Deep dark brown forest with slight foamy head islands. Light liqour baileyís cream aroma. Very pleasant. Slight sweetness, licorice cream coriander flavor. A little fizzy and boozy. Quite palatable and pleasant. One of the better of its kind. Tastes like it comes from a potent belgian ale bean - coffee-lattee note. Lasting cream coriander latte finish.
