330ml bottle. Slightly hazy deep mahogany body with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, roasty malt. Flavor is sweet, malt, lightly roast, raisin with just a little faint hint of the cellar character from Petrus oude bruin. Nice, but a bit “just malty” character.

SHIG (3604) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Draught: Poured a dark black brown with a tan color head. The aroma was sweet caramel and malt. The flavor was nice coffee caramel candy malt.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2007
Aroma of vinegar and strong yeast. Initial flavour was quite vinous but settled into a sappy cola feel. Raspberries, chocolate in the finish. Enjoyable.

LinusStick (2875) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Those Belgians know their beer! Holy crap how did I pass this one up?! Dark red/brown pour with no real head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is caramel when it first hits the tongue. After that there is a free for all between chewy malt and slight hops with the malt reigning supreme.

iowaherkeye (2692) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
11.2oz, no date. Pours a cloudy reddish brown with a two finger beige head. Aroma of powdered brown sugar (this makes sense), raisins, prunes, some toffee and a bit of cola. Flavor is oxidized, but doesn’t seem to make the beer too bad. A little too sweet for me, little bitterness noted, dry finish. Watery body, moderate to high carbonation. Not too great.

Aurelius (4257) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 22, 2007
Dark sugary, fruit cakey aroma -- raisins and dates. Kinda sweet and boring. Lightly bittered, a little under carbonated. Brown sugar, light molasses, somewhat watery. Clingy sugar finish.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Full sweet body. The malt is the focus of this beer, with nuts, figs and caramel showing through.

12-oz., courtesy the kind hospitality of BitBucket, jr. Big yeasty candi sugar nose on a deep cloudy coppery medium amber pour with a sudsy white head. Big fruity yeasty sugary mid-palate and a clingy sweet finish. A little on the sweet side; made lovingly and well if not from an inspired recipe.
