Bottled 750. Brown/ black pour with red "highlights". Frothy tan head. Weak, yeasty aroma. Big smokey, chocolate flavor with notes of coffee, plums and cigar. Just a tinge of alcohol in the finish. Dry aftertaste.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Pours a clear dark umber with a large, soapy tan head. The aroma is candy sweet malt with some nuttiness. It’s fairly well carbonated and light-bodied. The taste is sweet malt, dark dried fruits, a dash of peppery spiciness, and some alcohol. It finishes on a fruity note. Nice for a cool, damp day.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Deep reddish maple syrup color with a nice aroma of burnt sugar and hazelnuts, tastes thinner and lighter than it looks and smells, but I get brown sugar, light chocolate, watery coffee.

I wasn’t a big fan of this beer. It has a woody taste and the palate seems bland.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Dark mahogany, almost brown. Frothy head with strings of lace. Good malts in the nose with plenty of caramel. Some roasts. Nice dark fruits come out in the nose. Yeasty with some spices to please ya. The fruits are strong in the flavor. Figs mostly. Rich caramel and just a hint of chocolate. Slight bitternes with a rush of spice. The palate is tingly with a thick chewy body. Finishes with dark fruits and malts.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2005
Cloying Belgian strong dark ale. Poured a deep teak colour. Disappointingly small white head. Formidable aroma: big and peppery with hints of licorice. Dry hop characters - a little like a stout or a porter. Full-bodied and creamy. Thickly alcoholic and rummy. Dried fruit and toasted malt in the middle. This has a strong espresso-like intensity that eventually became too grippy for my taste. Tarry. Disappointing. (Bottle)

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Dark red color with light head and some lacing. Nose of sweet plums & umami, light fig & caramel sweetness. The flavor is slightly hot but has delicious flavors of spicy candied ginger and candied plums. Finsishes peppery & a bit antisceptic but still very tasty.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 27, 2005
750ml corked. Poured a dark tawny color with a small off white head. Aroma hit me first with alcohol, which suprised me since it is only 8%. Behind that was moderate malt sweetness, dried fruits, apples, and light alcohol . Flavor was short, quick semi-dry finish. Sweet and fruity but light body coupled with the quick finish left me wanting.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2005
Pours dark brown with a little ruby color. Decent sized tannish head. Malty, fruity aroma but less yeasty in aroma than other Belgians. Alcohol also apparent in the aroma. Very dry and lots of carbonation. Slightly smoky as well. Way too thin for this kind of beer.
