DrnkMcDermott (2977) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2005 Draft, served in Chicago. I figure the geography should be mentioned as this is likely quite different from what’s served in its homeland. Anyway, I got a rather nicely pulled draught at Pizzeria Uno, though it was served a little too cold. Nice "beery" smell compliments the warm, slightly roasty malt taste. Hops are slight and match well with rest of the beer. A fruity ale taste, almost like a Pete’s Wicked, shows up at the finish. A pretty good one to have.

Ysok02 (751) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2016
Robe brune, légèrement ambrée. Nez épicé et malté, assez agréable. Bouche par contre légère et manquant d’ampleur et de caractère. Bière assez basique.
