Dark brown with light brown froathy head. Very sour floral aroma. Bitter citrus flavor jumps to the front, but finishes with a smooth spicy caramel malt.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a dark amber with a thick, rocky, off-white head. The aroma is golden raisins, cookie dough, candi sugar and caramel. The flavor is very fruity with plums and bananas, cola, caramel and candi sugar. The mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a dull reddish brown with a creamy tan head. It’s got a complex aroma supported by a rich, malty base of dark caramel lightened by sweet toffee. Plenty of fruit to be enjoyed in the nose as well, plums, apples, raisins, and bananas, as well as a subtle spiciness. The flavor is more straightforward, caramel and alcohol with some dried fruits, all blended with a licorice stick. Very soft mouthfeel. It finishes on a mildly bitter, spicy note with the dryness of alcohol. Very good.

Lt brown in color. Thin head that dissipates rather quickly. A little thin in overall mouthfeel. Some yeast and malty flavors.

frankenkitty (1962) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2006
Pours a beautiful, mostly-clear reddish-mahogany with a holding & creamy almost-tan head. Complexity abounds in the aroma with light funk and prominent basement mustiness forming the yeast profile behind fruity banana & apple... with additional cereal notes and moldy, waterlogged driftwood. Flavor is not as thrilling as the aroma, finding sour fruitiness alongside full malts in a taste that is appealing but uninspired. Fluffy mouthfeel with light astringence to finish. MIld alcohol rears late and lingers with anise (a flavor I couldn’t place until I read the previous ratings... good call by nick76).

Brown mahogany pour with a decent sized tan head. Watery palate, mildly malty fruity flavor. Pretty basic.

nick76 (4300) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2006
The aroma has caramel, (a basement like) yeast, bread, and cola. The appearance is red brown with a medium head. The flavor has bread, caramel, anise, and a little licorice. The palate is typical for the style. Overall it’s good.

Dark chestnut brown body, nice creamy medium head. Strong malty aroma, toffee, spices, dark fruit, alcohol. Full bodied malty caramel, wood flavour, coffee in the finish.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle. Pours a wonderful mahogany color with a thin light brown head. Sourdough bread aroma with some nice candy like sweetness. Dark fruits and spices as well. Malt dominates the taste and finishes with a slightly bad apple cider taste. Mouthfeel is a little creamy and carbonated.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - MAR 23, 2006
Malt, alcohol, flowers dominate the aroma of this hazy brown beer. The head is rather lose and dissipates quickly. Very heavy with a sour flavor that dominates the malt. Finishes clean.
