Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2004
Pours deep mahogony with a thin tan head. Wood earth and light booze nose. Alcohol increases drastically as it warms. Some burnt malt flavours. Peppery carbonation, great considering the beer is probably 4 years old. Bready yeasty and sour. Light dried fruit and chocolate. Toffee and hopped dry finish.

Big HUGE fluffy head, complex aroma of yeast, fruit, malt and spices. Deep reddish brown. strong fruity esscence (raisins, currants?) Well masked alcohol, becoming more pronounced as the glass emptied. Nice finish, very dry on the palate.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Had at HBF from bottle. Poured burgundy, with a big head. Aroma of malt, fruit, yeast, spice, and peat. Tastes very complex with hints of all the aromas above. Nicely balanced, with well hidden alcohol.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2004
In my oppinion this is the best brew from ommegang. Very complex and strong with lots of malt and fruity yeasty notes going on yet it isnt overbearing. QUite drinkable for such a strong beer. Goes down pretty easy.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Dark burgandy red like a fine leather reading chair. Nice head and solid carbonation. The aroma is sweet, apple-spiced, light ethanol and wonderful perfumes. The flavor is apple peel with a slight bitterness then sweet malt and champagne yeasty fruitions. Alcohol is present and accounted for, but not over-bearing. This is one of Americas best crafted brews and a great bargain. Its a Strong Belgian-American.

blatantdream (78) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Deep reddish brown color, frangrant aroma. One of my favorites and I drink this very often. The spices and the sweetness of the beer blends very well and leaves a wonderful aftertaste and mouth-feel.
