Nekronos (3742) - Xalapa, MEXICO - DEC 24, 2005
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Very good, very srong, the glass is nice. Itis dark, but too spicy, i like it, the foam is there and the character is great.

Panzerfaust (578) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 21, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2006 Pours a nice orange color with a creamy big lingering head. Aroma has some hoppy floral notes like roses combined with a sweet and spicey nose that shows apricots and clove. Flavor is strong and well-defined with VERY sweet ripe fruits in the beggining, hints of caramel and a powerful mouthfeel of gun powder. Full-bodied and with good carbonation, nice liquorish aftertaste. Long finish. A little too sweet but a killer beer overall.

a very pleasant strong ale. very rich and warming. Nice lasting head, mild, well integrated malt flavors with a slightly spicy, fairly crisp finish.

Zeswaft (1446) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Tastes like every other Belgian I’ve had. The only thing this beer has going for it is the crazy ass conveyance thing it’s served in. Looks like some type of science experiment.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Fine off-white head, unclear orange body with sediments. Malty and chocolaty aroma with plenty of spices and bisquit. Sweet and a bit alcoholic in the flavor, caramel and spices with a hoppy finish. Sharp, tasty and warming. Thanks Jens!

Yard (45) - Senoia, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Amber to light brown in color. Small off white head with good steady lacing. Nice malty aroma. Malty in flavor and on palate. Good Belgian.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2005
Dry cheesy yeast with some slight sweet notes and a taste with a kind of flatness throughout. Medium head with bubbly consistancy.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
11.2oz bottle. Pours a copper-caramel color with a fair amount of floaties, moderate sized off-white pillowy head. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts, with some slight sour notes, some slight spiciness--probably from the yeast. nice and spicy, alcohol, sweet, witha small bitter finish. Pretty good brew.
