Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Fruity banana nose with light hints of it in the flavor which I thought was weak. I tasted some alcohol there. It was a murky brown with a thin off white head and was fairly smooth.

Redish amber colour catches the light. Thick head with great retention. Toasty, hoppy, scent. Taste is creamy head, then nutty with a dry finish. A very wee bit sweet, with a taste that reminds me of almonds.

gilvanblight (817) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
Amber Brown with a thick foamy head that had excellent retention. Strong fruit scent (banana?). Verry fizzy with a strong bite on the tongue. Flavour was not very deep but pleasant.

330ml brown bottle. Deep amber/brown. Large fluffy tan head. Chocolate malt aroma, trace of iron. Flavour - dark chocolately malt, dash of spiciness, slight alcohol warming deep in the throat. Lingering malt aftertaste.

egajdzis (5497) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
RBSG 2005... Poured a copper brown color with a light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, spices, banana, and caramel malt. Taste of tart grapes, raisins, citrus, yeast, and light alcohol.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2005
Nice looking mahogany with a large fluffy tan head. Sweet nose with dark fruits and a very small hint of chemicals(chlorid?!). Strange, though not really annoying. Comes back a bit in the taste, together with raisins, fudge, caramel and grapes. Sharp palate, alcoholbite in the aftertaste. Strange.

JonMoore (1963) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2005
Dark but clear, deep reddish brown, plenty of carbonation with a huge off-white head. Caramel and soft roast malts in the aroma. Effervescent, full bodied mouthfeel. Taste is caramel and malts to begin turning quite bitter. Alcohol becomes apparent in the finish. Different, but very good.

Paskal (146) - La Prairie, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2005
Mousse généreuse, liquide brun-rouge foncé pas très dense offrant un goût épicé et fruité. Forte mais douce au palet. - A great amount of foam, a dark brown-red liquid not densed at all that gives a spicy & fruity taste. Sttrong but sweet in the mouth.

TBone (13446) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2005
Bottled (BB 09/2007)
Deep dark red color, a good creamy tanned head, lace. Malty, woody, mildly alcoholic and yeasty aroma. Crisp carbonated mouthfeel. Hoppy, slightly alcoholic, taste of sugar, coffee and leather too. Lighter body than in blonde version, but is more interesting.
