Eeeesh. I’ll be really blunt, this swill is awfull. Amber-red color. Aroma of alcohol and yeast(?). Weak flavor of malt and strong flavor of alcohol. Doesn’t feel like a bock at all.

Golden amber color, no head. Strong malty alcohol taste. Finished with alcohol. It’s a sipper.

maltdog (619) - Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2004
Pours deep gold, almost orange; holding it to sunlight, I get a prismatic rainbow on the floor. Large bubbles form a sparse white head that is gone in 60 seconds, and all carbonation disappears not long after that. Overwhelming MALT nose- buttercream icing, caramel and vanilla. Also just the barest, faintest whiff of grass and golden riasins. A quick driveby of lager-y malt flavor collides with a brick wall of honey-herb cough drop, reinforced with burnt sugar bitterness. Mouthfeel is, well, thick. Woody aftertaste with a touch of mint degrades into a flavor somewhere between generic-brand cigarette butt and lawnmower exhaust. Not very complex, and overly bitter for the style; flavor approaches that of cheap nasty scotch

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2004
Clear golden with a fast disappearing white head. The aroma is some citric fruits, hay, some underlying maltiness. The flavor is very alcoholic, malts, citrus. A bit too much alcohol burn.

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 (4381) - 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 (1089) - 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.
