Beerenberger (1368) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2013
The aroma is malt forward with notes of toasted malts, caramel, and nuts. A dark clear garnet-brown hue with a very thin tan head, which quickly forms a ring, and minimal lacing. The taste is surprisingly rich; not robust, but very rewarding. Roasted malts, toffee, caramel, with hints of nuts. There is a slight hoppy/peppery finish. Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer and would drink it again - winter or not.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Pour is deep copper/caramel color with a rocky off-white head that doesnít last long. Nose is slightly roasty with a bit of dried fruit smell. A small amount of spices can be detected. Palate is smooth and medium bodied. Taste is caramelized malt with just a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Nice. Malty and fair if seriously non-west-coast hop profile. Good beer, nothing wrong with it, perhaps a tad heavy on carbonation - wouild rate higher, but itís just not exactly my style nor what Iím in the mood for rihgt now. (in the mood for a bit more hops, other than that Iím just being evil)

Pailhead (4606) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle: Courtesy of bu11zeye via trade. The aroma is very roasty with roasted malt and hints of nuts along with some faint caramel. It pours a transparent brownish-red with a small off-white head that quickly fades. The flavor starts with moderate dark fruits with a light roastiness that lingers throughout. The fruitiness sweetens a tad in the finish along with some light bitterness and faint caramel. There is just a touch of alcohol flavor in the finish, but no real warmth.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 25, 2007
Poured a clear golden chestnut color with a thin off-white head. Light caramel malt with light clovey spice. Mild alcohol notes. Malty flavor with mild fruit, just a hint of spice and light alcohol. Some sweetness. Fair amount of warmth. Some toasty aroma when this warmed. Medium bodied.

ElGaucho (2189) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Cornfield. Thanks Carl!. Nice sweet aroma that portends of good things to come. Hint of high alcohol, in the nose but it is mostly hidden. Mostly opaque, very dark reddish brown with a thin off white ring. Not much lace. There wasnít much of a sound when I popped the cap, so I was leary of flatness. However, if I wasnít thinking that I wouldnít have noticed that it may be a little less carbonated than average. Nice, fairly well balanced flavor. Not much in the way of hops but the roasted malts and higher alcohol work well. A tasty brew. Not spectacular but no glaring flaws.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle, courtesy of bu11zeye. Pours a clear brown color with burgundy highlights and a medium, beige color. Aroma of caramel and chocolate with mild alcohol. The flavor has a rich presence of malt with nuts, caramel and chocolate. Itís sweet but just enough. The body is medium with a liquorous texture and gentle carbonation. A pleasant beer to sip on a cold october evening.
