Suttree (5540) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Brownish red, spongey tan head. aroma is odd - cinnamon and other sweet spices mixed with cola. Flavor is OK at forst, with touches of Fruity, cola-ish and spicy, but as it warms a persistant cough medcine note emerges and kinda dominates the whole thing. Ends up rather unappealling.

armando629 (2448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 25, 2008
Nice dark brown body, delisicious small beige head. Strong nose of coffe, it might be some chocolate and fruits, liqueric. The flavour is not as complex as the aroma, but good with some roasted taste, with fruits(citruses?) and some chocolate malt. Bittery-soury aftertaste.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 15, 2008
Color: black with brown/ruby glints. Foamy light brown head. Nose: Heavy sweet chocolate notes. Peaberry, bitter chocolate, oaky tannins and soft malt. Palate: Herbal and lemony, then quickly dosed with chocolate malt and an oaky finish. There is a wonderful balance between the dark chocolate notes and the light astringency of the lemony notes.

Haslinger (873) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Served in a tulip, it’s a deep beautiful reddish. Aroma of fruit almost wine. Very good taste, lots of fruits and and a wonderful aftertaste. Would buy again

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark amberish brown with a small off-white head and a sweet chocolatish aroma. The flavor starts really sweet with caramel, raisin, ripe fruits and chocolate. Then it ends with a bitter and sourish finish. Tasty.

jefcon (1502) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 18, 2008
Dark brown in color with a kind of reddish tint. Caramel notes on the nose and plenty of unfinished unconverted sugars on the palate. Slightly cloying, with a minor metallic tang. Still, the fruits are rich and bright -- orange, apple, banana. Some yeast, but not in harmony with the rest of the profile.

Naka (717) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2008
On tap at Sharp Edge. A dark brown opaque brown color with a medium beige head. A deep malty aroma of dark fruit, smoked brown sugar, and a bit of a yeasty character. Taste of apples, plums, caramel malts and sweet brown sugar. A medium to light body that leaves a little bit of sweetness on the tongue.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2008
On tap at Sharp Edge. Woody musty aroma, mild oak and light sweet grain, caramel malt. Dusty. Apple skins. Not much in the way of hops. Hazy brown, with no head. Murky. Medium body with medium fizzy carbonation, a bit watery. Starts sweet with light caramel, apple skins, and brown sugar. A little woody. Sweet and a bit watery with a light dry-nutty finish. OK, but just lacks a little something.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 9, 2008
Dark brown/black in colour with small toffee coloured head. Weird acidic aroma. malty flavour with hint of rasin. Always good for a challenge.
