tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours nice dark amber with a reasonable cream-colored head. The aroma is mostly fruity malts with some spices thrown in to boot. The flavor is rather toasty, with some caramel and spice notes. Toffee in the finish, with some earth and grass. Ok, not great.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Aroma of roasted malt, earth, and spices. Dark cola colors with a minimial head. Dry bitter flavors, roasted malt, burnt toast. Some spiciness but not much. Light palate with dryish finish.

Suttree (5388) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Bottle at Union Jacks - Pours clear red, with a nice spongy head. Very faint aroma, but interesting - a little spicy, a little herbal. Flavor is, uh, odd. It was a little spicy, with a touch of nutmeg or something, but as it warmed, ah herbal flavor emerged that verged on medicinal. It ended up being kinda hard to finish.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a well-lacing light tan head. Aroma of earthy, dark caramel malts with some English hops. Starts semi-sweet with an earthy grainy maltiness and some citrusy flavor hops toward a more bitter, thinner and drier finish. Seems like a pretty standard ESB.

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Beautiful brown color; creamy head. Very nice aroma, British (despite the usage of Centennial and Cascade with the East Kent Golding) and a quite high bitterness also deriving from it; the final is therefore a bit dry.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle. Dark amber colour with ruby hints. Medium off-white head. Malty aroma with a note of dried plums. Quite hoppy taste, long finish.

eaglefan538 (2918) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle from SL, pour was deep amber to red, some brown hues too, decent initial head, diminishing, though, leaving only light lacing. The aroma was roasted malts, caramel, almost a touch of coffee. The flavor was roasted malts, touch of coffee, toffee to slight brown sugar, faint chocolate, no significant spicing, dry hoppy finish. Not my cup of tea or beer.

Gorbalev (2990) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, Harry’s bottle. Dark ruby red, small bubbly off white head. Mild spice, malt, sweet aroma. Good taste - woody, tangy, spice, malt, some sweetness, fruit. A bit thin. Simple yet good.

MrBeachtwig (54) - Sandared, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Slightly orange colour with light head. Both aroma and taste is a bit artifical, but I also sent some coffee. I expect much more body from a winter ale.

blankboy (6423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle (500ml) shared with and courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing creamy tan head. Dry aroma of lightly roasted malt, toffee, a hint of chocolate, some nuts and herbal hops. Flavour: Dry, slightly roasty with toffee, some chocolate and a herbal bitter kick. Medium bodied. Pretty decent, I’d have it again.
