blankboy (7268) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, tupalev & jerc -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a clear flat gold with almost no head. Sweet sugary and woodsy aroma. Flavour of white wine, wood and yeast. Full bodied and syrupy. I found this just O.K.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Medium golden color with a small white head, potent aroma of caramel, toffee, and roasted malt. Tasted of a good whiskey, without that burning alcohol sensation. I expected less flavor with the color, but it turned out to be a damn good beer.

rickgordon (3853) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2005
Bottled. Amber colour. Sweetish-sourish nose and with clear alcohol notes. Loads of malty, mouthcoating almonds in the flavour.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottled. Poured much lighter than anticipated... a light amber with a short cap of beige head and a lot of sediment floating around in there. Nose picked up vinous notes, dark fruit, oak, and hydrogen peroxide... sweet and malty overall, but had odd some odd aspects to it. Rather light mouthfeel with pears and grapes initially. Alcohol and floral hoppage show up at the back of the mouth and finish. Molasses and caramel provide a solid base. Alcohol was a little too pervasive at the finish, but was held in check by pears and floral hops. Decent.

GregClow (3215) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of HogTownHarry. Goddamn, this brewery has the ugliest labels! Good thing the beer is half-decent. Clear gold colour with a small head. Aroma is strong, sweet malt and woody alcohol. Flavour is somewhat earthy, with some dry white wine notes, and a quick hit of hops in the finish. Gets a bit sweeter as it warms. Not bad.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, blankboy, GregClow, and Jerc - courtesy of Harry. Dark yellow, small white head, flat. Strong sweet aroma, light malt. Strong syrup taste, lots of stale hops and citrus. Sweet honey taste as well. Harsh alcohol. Cloying and boring.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle. Golden yellow, very small whit ehead. Sweet alcoholic aroma, some malt. Hot alcohol and sweet malt dominated the flavour as well, some sugars. Maybe it was just late in the evening, but this did very little for me.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of yours truly. Poured clear gold with a very small foamy white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly vegetal, a bit of interesting woodiness on warming. Taste is pretty nice - sugary and oaky, off-dry reisling, and there’s alcohol bitterness on the finish - good winter warmer. Mouthfeel is bitter and astringent and a bit syrupy, although thin. I like it, but it’s a bit like a watered down pale port.

I finally had this one after having the damn other one about 5 times. Copper color. The aroma is crazy with lamp oil and toothpaste and some kind of fuel. Mollasses is also very present.
