rlgk (11036) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2005
(75 cl bottle at Delirium Cafe, Brussels)Shiny amber, great offwhite head. Malty aroma with vanilla and some spices. Quite mild malty flavor with vanilla, toffee and fruity notes. Quite a mild finish.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Cloudy, reddish-brown with a thick creamy head. Fruity,woody and smoky aromas-like being in the woods. Flavors of sweet fruits, caramel and Belgian yeasts are clean with just a hint of bitterness. A spiciness reveals itself toward the end. Overall, pretty complex, but more of a Belgian than a Scotch ale.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Pours mahogany in color, decent white head fades to film. Very bready, yeasty aroma, some light fruit in the background. Flavor is very subdued malt with dark fruits and slight spice in the finish. Very dry finish.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Cloudy, orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is nutty and carmel malts. Also hints of raisin. The flavor is earthy and full of malt and dark fruit flavors. It’s very carbonated and has a faint alcohol presence that mixes with great carmel malts.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2005
75cl Ruby red and almost clear with a foamy head which diminishes to a layer of film. Rich fruity malty aroma permeates the air. Nice yeast aromas blend well with berry like fruit and caramel malt aromas-cherries are present. Not your typical Scotch Ale, more strong Belgian with emphasis on malt yet complex like a good yeasty Belgian style. Lots of lacing and the layer of foam is holding up well. Lively mouthfeel, velvety soft and full. Flavor is excellent! Fruitiness reminds me of Three Philosophers. Slightly sweet, slightly tart, rich malt flavors with yeast adding that nice Belgian character I crave. Overall an excellent brew!

Pailhead (4900) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma is fruity with a moderate apple presence, yeast, and a touch of caramel. Pours a somewhat transparent amber with an off-white head that lasts a minute or so. Lots of caramel with a hint of chocolate. Finishes lightly yeasty with some fruity tartness. Lively carbonation in the mouthfeel.

pineypower (2523) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Pours out a nice brown color with a decent white frothy head. The aroma is of yeast and sweet fruit, maybe grapes or cherries. The taste is sweet with some notes of grapes, and some other sweet fruits I couldn’t really put my finger on. Finishes with a slight alcohol flavor. Nice beer

25oz - Sweet yeasty aroma with red grapes, cherry, and a touch of vanilla. Pours a huge head with a great thick lacing over a cola looking brown body. Flavor is also sweet and yeasty with carmel malt to smooth it out. Nice spice kick too. Palate is a bit dull and slick. Not bad.
