roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a medium orange-golden liquid with a small amount of slightly off-white colored head that dissipates quickly to near nothing, but leaves a thin film. Aroma is an orange-lemon citrus with maybe a faint grain, straw, grass, vegetal character. Flavor is a sweet and strong alcohol citrus with a noticable grain, straw, grass, vegetal. Definitely a noticable alcohol burn. Overall, unpleasant to drink. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2004
Good glassy copper color with not much head at all. Aroma is nutty and smells of malt and wheat. Flavor has a good crisp feel, probably from the bitterness and the alcohol. Fine beer, but nothing to sensational.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2004
Hazy rusty amber with a thin to non existant white head. The nose is awesome sweetness malts, suggary with a hint of like fruitcake. Kind of reminds me of scotch. The taste starts off malty sweet with a tad of rusty metal. Alcohol vapours at the back of the tounge. Overall, quite interesting, but the rustyness of the taste kind of bothers me.

Aurelius (4175) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2004
Very nice fruity aroma with lots of malt. Some musty tones at times when whiffed at a distance -- earth, mold, cheese. Nice embossed bottle, clean, simple label. Well-balanced, peach ice cream flavor, some vanilla cakiness, ABV is masked but definitely detectable. Not tinny or sherryish. Full-bodied, front-sweet finish moving on to a long lasting, edgy finale. Quite good.

Aldrighetti (163) - Coltura, ITALY - MAR 27, 2004
Bottled. Dark golden colour, small white head, disappears fast, glass sticking. Sweet nose, at first I smell a strange aroma of fresh cut potatoes, after this, more conventional aromas of fruity, apricot and peach preserved in spirit, malt aroma(bread, potatoes bread), alcohol. Taste is sweet (honey), with a lot of alcohol sweetness. Full body, with an excessive alcohol-feel, rather heavy but easy to drink if compared with similar strong lager beers. It's a beer punch!

Holdwine (1077) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 4, 2004
A little disappointed with this one. Maybe I chilled it too much. Overly sour alcohol burn. I didn't sense any "noble hops bitterness" or "creamy flavour". More strw color than amber.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2004
Deep golden coloured with white head. Full bodied, malty and sweet. Notes of liquorice and alcohol.

SlimJimDrinker (115) - Nørrebronx, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2004
aroma is quite yeasty with a strong touch of alcohol... Powerful in taste and a long lasting sharp aftertaste

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Doesn't look like a DB, though malty and very warming, with little hop flavor; quite alcoholic tasting; finishes slightly dry; too strong of an alcoholic taste that lingers to really enjoy this otherwsee very tasty brew

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Deep clear golden yellow color, has a decent head that doesn't last. Sweet malty, toffee candy like aroma. Sweet burnt caramel sugar flavors, full body and a thick and syrupy mouthfeel, alcohol comes out in the finish with a sticky sweetness, not at all what I expected.
