Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle. Meh, I can see why this beer has low ratings. Pours a nice reddish-brown color with not much of a head. Not much of an aroma. Malty mouth feel, but mainly came off flat and uninteresting. I’ll pass.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 6, 2008
500 ml bottle purchased at New Pioneer Coop in Coralville. Poured a clear ruby red-brown color. Head was rocky and light tan with good retention. Attractive aroma of citrusy/flowery hops and malty caramel. Slightly sweet on the tongue. The flavor profile was malt dominated with nutty/earthy, caramel, and toffee elements. I also tasted some grassy/sprucy hops. The finish was dry with moderate hop bitterness that peaked at about 4 out of 10. Good beer.

Pours a four finger light head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Cloudy brown/amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Slight chocolate nose. Flavor is burnt chocolate. Seems similar to a porter. Slight bitter aftertaste. $5.92 for a 500ml bottle from Liquid Solutions Oregon City, Or.

jake65 (2958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle: Pours a medium depth chestnut brown with a small, but creamy sand colored head. Thick sheets of lacing. Aroma is earthy, floral, malty, and spicey. Lots going on, but not too overpowering. Flavor is malty smooth with bits of spice and a lingering florals bitter trailer with that tingling spicey feeling.

CanIHave4Beers (3621) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2007
This was my annual "Christmas Morning Beer" for 2007 Pours a beautiful deep amber with a big white billowy head that sticks around for almost the full pint, leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is faint, slightly floral with some skunk in there. The first drink caught me just slightly off guard, I didn’t expect anything super sweet at all, but I also didn’t expect anything this bitter. However once I got past that first sip the bitterness let way to a very pleasant hoppiness. I’m not sure what sorts of hops were used in this beer, but I’d like to see more beers in the U.S. that have a hop flavor like this one. There is a slight sweetness that gives way towards the end of the pint. I paid six bones for this pint, which I thought was a bit steep, never the less if it’s around next year I’m sure I’ll buy it again.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Bottle. Aroma was grain and toast. Red body when held to light. Good off white head with some lacing and head retention. Flavor was old stale beer with bitter in the background and malted wet grain. Palatable because I drank it all.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle @ Cole’s Christmas Tasting 2007. Mahogany brown body with a small beige head. Odd aroma, light fruit notes and tangy malt character. (6+) Similar fruit and malt in the flavour, light caramel notes. Average palate. Not unpleasant but fairly unremarkable.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2007
From a 500ml bottle--Explosive creamy off-white head that blew out of the bottle upon opening. Medium dark amber body. Nose of sticky caramel hops and malts. Very nice, but a little cardboard-ish. I think it may have not traveled as well as it could have. Nice dry, bitter finish. I would definitely drink again.
