DYCSoccer17 (3580) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Bottle. Spicy, honey-like corny aroma with some noticeable booze and sweet touches in the nose. Transparent golden color with a whitish head that’s pretty long-lasting. Sweet, vinous, honey-like flavors to start. Mildly bitter in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness. This beer just doesn’t come all together for me. A bit cloyingly sweet. *after viewing RB, this is a doppelbock??**

bu11zeye (12517) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of bread, flowers, light citrus-based perfume, and some alcohol. Falvor of vintage ale malt, chardonnay grapes, caramel and a bit of alcohol bite in the finish. I think I would age a year or so before again.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle. Orange-amber in colour with a non-lasting white head. The alcohol dominates the aroma, very sweet with some caramel malt. Huge amounts of alcohol heat pretty much numb the mouth, gingerbread, grains and a caramel sweetness make for a harsh mouthfeel. Light body, medium carbonation. All heat in the finish.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Gold/ light amber. Quickly disappearing white head. Malt, alcohol, some sweetness, and a touch of banana in the nose. Very similar to Samichlaus, only everything is turned down a notch. Tastes as it smells. Full, creamy body. It’s good, but I was expecting something heavier and more complex from the "cognac of beers." It might just be too similar to Samichlaus for me to fully appreciate it.

jefcon (1592) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Light aromas of spice: clove, coriander and cinnamon, as well as a grassy yeast. Light orange in the glass, clear, and no head or lacing at all. Hides its alcohol well, with some deep spices and a forward taste of unmalted cereals and hops. Palate sours toward the end and is short and light but very dry due to its alcohol heft.

greebsnarf (2) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2005 does not count
Rich gold appearance, very little head. Unexpectedly bitter, and rather strong alcohol content.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Nice golden body with a soapy white head. Strong German malt character with sweet notes of exotic honey and melon. Sweet, strong lager with some detectable oxidation in the flavor. A decent, interesting sipper. Like a super-maibock.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2005

Bottled. Yellow coloured with a small white head. Malty aroma with notes of fruits and alcohol. Malty flavour with notes of dried fruit and cardemomme.
