heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2006
I got a bottle as part of a Petrus sampler pack. The body is a very dark ruddy and thick brown. The head is light tan and long lasting. The aroma has some fresh dough with corn syrup. There is also a little bit of caramel. The taste is sweet toffee with some light coffee in the finish. There is also some bubblegum in the mouth after drinking a little. A decent brew, but a little sweet for me. I am obviously missing something that others liked.

A Mes rate: Tap at Beer Weekend Brussels. Sweet fruity aroma with hints of toffee. Red-brown body with a good tan head, bubbly but well behaved. Flavour is just like the nose with a bitter coffee finish. Great palate. A good beer.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Pours a cloudy deep copper/ orange with a nice off white head. Spicy yeasty aroma with some fruity esters and lightly sweet caramel malts. Lightly toasty flavor, some nuttiness, more fruit and an earthy hoppy flavor as well. A bit too sweet in the middle and almost became cloying. Other than that, this was ok.
