12 oz bottle VIA Malt of The Earth Beer Club. This one pours a semi-clear amber with a very small white head. Nose is quite grainy with some caramel and berries. Taste starts very sweet, some caramel and ends with some roasted malts. In between there is lots of sugar and breadiness, as well as some earthy hops. Body is medium and carbonation is way high, which makes it difficult to discern the flavors. There does seem to be some munich malt amongst the harshness of the aftertaste.

IPALover (63) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Light amber colored "porter" pivo with 9% alcoh. Doesn’t taste like a traditional english porter but is smooth, malty and easy to drink for such a high gravity beer.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2006
Bottle, at Kookfest, September 2006. Sweet and sickly with burning alcohol. I didn’t really pick up anything else at all. OK for getting blasted quick I suppose. More than a little of the Tennents Super, or other cheap wino lagers about it. Very crude and unimpressive.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2006
Bottle. Yipes, very sweet and alcoholic. Gold/amber colour. Aroma shows some plummy fruit and alcohol. MOuthfeel is very raw, with alcohol very evident. Sweet sticky fruit flavour, with some sugary notes. Very rough and pretty much undrinkable.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2006
Bottle @ Kookfest. Strong sweetish malt and moderate alcohol. Despite not normally liking beers with lots of apparent alcohol or that are too sweet I found this quite enjoyable, although I wouldnt finish a whole bottle.

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2006
Kook’s Farewell Soiree. Strong lager. Tastes huge and crude. Sweet malt with nothing to balance.

Radek Kliber (6401) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 21, 2006
botlle. Slightly hazy, golden-amber, smallish crown on top. Aroma was primary of grainy character with plenty of sweet malt wrapped with alcohol. This lager had sticky malty base with strong smooth alcoholic presence. Smooth, strong lager.
