wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
Tasted in San Francisco while here at a conference. Obtained from PlumpJacks Noe location. Unfortunately, I had to rate this one in one of those hotel bathroom glasses. Appearance is reddish brown, with a medium sustained white head that laces the glass well. Aroma is sweet, with hints of caramel and candied sugar. Initially the flavour had a metallic taste. The metallic taste eventually subsided after several sips. Flavour is somewhat muted and not as charaterisitcally intense as I would have expected. Very subtle hints of sweetness, malt, slight yeasty presence and spice.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Dark brown, somewhat ruby red when held up to light with a thick white head. Aroma of pear, spices, hops and caramel. Taste has notes of brown sugar, yeast, pear, raisins, roasty malts, nuts, chocolate and spiciness. Pretty sweet. Alcohol content very well hidden. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not much lacking but good head retention. Good stuff.

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Deep reddish brown with lacy head. Musty, earthy, mushroomy aroma with flavors of wet grass and cola. Pleasingly strange.

piscator34 (1959) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 25, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 Dark brown in colour with an off-white head. Lots of carbonation. Aromas of caramalized malt, yeast, and cut grass. The flavor is an odd combination of sweet malt and spritzy saison-like flavors (citrus, yeast, etc...)... it tastes good, but still somewhat muddled.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 21, 2005
bottle. poured a nice dark mahogony with a slight white head, good lacing. aroma of sweet malt, spiced rum, brandy...initial mid sweet malt taste with a maple/ rum and yeast hint...the hops were light but pleasing in how they round out the beer. The palate could have been a little fuller feeling. this brew was very reminiscent of corsendonk and westmalle dubbel as well as close to many scotch ales. I enoyed this very much!

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pors a medium brown with nice lace. Fruity sweet malt aromas. Malty sweetness dominants the palate through to a sweet finifh.
