Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 6, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 A touch more on the sweet caramelly side, yes, compared to the "chewing on old leather" side, but quite good. I agree, hoppier than Iwould have suspected, and with a far greater yeast portion than I have seen. Quite yummy, and different.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2003
Muddy reddish color, not much head. Caramel, alcohol, flambé red cherries, good hop presence. Nice edgy bitterness in the finish but balanced by sweet caramel. Reminds me of McAuslan Vintage Ale.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 30, 2003
Tap - RedBones It was an almost frighteningly hazy dirty brown with a sweet and hoppy aroma. Hoppy and bitter flavor. Strong alcohol taste. Woody finish. I wish I was as eloquent as mittenstein.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2003
Cloudy brown color with suspended yeast particles. Nose is choclatey with a leafy hoppiness and sweet malt. Body is smooth and sweet with bitterness in the middle accompanied by a light chocolate compliment. Finishes bitter-sweet. Not bad, not as complex as I love my old ales to be, maybe needs some age.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 27, 2003
Dark , cloudy amber . Sweet aroma , hightly aromatic (because of an alcohol content) . Yeast was mixed with caramell . This beer was missing character ...

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2003
Muddy dark amber-brown. Aroma of Lyle's Golden Syrup. Very sweet palate...oranges, nuts, earth...a little toffee in the finish, but you really have to be in the mood for sweet to enjoy this.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 From the bottle:
Turbid, baccate mangroves sit in a calm, peppery hop swamp...A sapful chocolate expunges melancholy as the sapient wet earth silently groans its livelihood...A scrumptious cough syrup sweetness oozes around the soft bitter thickets...A fine example of fruition...4.1/5

On tap at the brewery:
Less barley-winish and more a big-bodied mild ale or ESB with some candied fruit (citrus to peaches), decent hoppy bitterness and an immature worty, cereal character. Served too young? 3.6/5

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 2, 2002
On draft in VT: Ruby-amber hue. Aromas of wood, vanilla, dark fruit. Sweetness is very enjoyable, full bodied, chewy, toffee, maple, yeast is awesome. The best part is the hops which balance this beer incredibly. Alcohol is hidden, and this brew is trememndously quaffable despite its high alcohol. This is one of my favorites.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 12, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2004 22OZ bottle, no idea how old it is. Yellowed label with black print peeling off it. Not much aroma, tasted citrus and sweet. You'll feel rather than taste this one.

cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2002
This is a fine barley beer with a darkened quality I like, not too heavy, and a good sweet flavor that lingers after the swallow. If I had to guess what flavors that come to mind, I’d guess molasses, butterscotch, and malt, with a touch of citrus to contain the flavors and give it a more mild taste, not overpowering, but complex, and plenty to feel good about.
