Sassy (217) - Mullet Capital of the World, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2004
Aroma is borderline offensive in my opinion, but then again that could be because of the new nasal-clearing tactic I picked up from wunderbier (sniffing the pits...hehe). Clear brown Flavor is better, though a bit thin, with nuts and sweet caramel...had no idea it has an 8.5 ABV...Dangerous! LOL

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2004
Pours a cloud reddish brown, a nice big off-white head. The aroma is sweet, spices. Malty flavour with caramel notes, recedes to a finish of grassy, snow-pea hops. Lively carbonation, yet smooth and full bodied. Good beer. Bottle.

4/14/04: Bottle.
Garnet body with an almond colored head. Some lacing. Top has patches of froth. Nose has a large alcohol smell, followed by raisins and spice. Semi-sweet malt taste. Flavor is quite interesting, with notes of caramel and spice. Nicely carbonated with a delicate mouthfeel. Alcohol taste is hidden fairly well.

mkobes (2140) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2004
Red orange in color with a nice head. Really good beer. Spicey aroma. Alcohol not noticeable. Easy to drink Great beer. Malty.

bluevegie (3052) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2004
Light red/orange coloured body with a large tan head. The aroma was of predominantly spices and then fruit. Taste was spice once again noticeably ginger and then some smoke, alcohol was well hidden and it was easy to drink. Beware!

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Moderate-dark wood color. Moderate-low amount of carbonation. Light, fizzy head. Aroma is delicate, a little yeasty. Spices and nuts. A small bit of bitterness. Alcohol is not at all apparent.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Dark brown color with medium sized head. Spicy citrus aromas. Chocolate and licorice with a bitter yeasty taste and warm mellow finish.

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2004
Bottled. Ruby colour, lively head. Funky grapefruit mingle with toffee and yeast in the nose. The sweetness is balanced by a rich, but not overly heavy maltiness. There are notes of honey, oak and caramel. The finish is mild with just some grassy bitterness. A malt accented and discretely complex beer. Very pleasant, but not fantastic.

jde123 (763) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 20, 2004
pours a dark umber...great! Thick foamy head, light tan that settles slowly leaving nice lace on the glass. The aroma has a bite to it, very complex, kind of like cinnamon. Taste is equally complex with bold accents of hops. There is a chocolate flavor, a yeasty aftertaste. Moutfeel slightly oily, not the greatest Overall this is a very drinkable beer.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Chocolate malt aroma with a big phenolic aroma coming through. Big phenolic flavors with some chocolate malt taste also. This was a decent Belgian brown ale but not as good as some others I have had.
