scottyw (46) - Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Big bottle. Pours with large head that dissipates quickly, and the body remains a red/brown haze. Aroma is the best part of this beer, with some molasses, vanilla, and a nice malt and yeast backbone. The taste and finish are both a bit sweet, but this is what a good ale should taste like. Definitely a favorite. I was disappointed to hear my friend did not care for this brew, but he likes Coors Light and Busch Light so I take it with a grain of salt.

probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
33 cl bottle from Bieropholie, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep reddish-brown with an unstable off-white froth. Aroma: Lots of molasses, caramel, toffee, raisins, dark dried fruits, light herbal notes (mint, etc.), slightly nutty, very sweet, Palate: Medium body and medium-full effervescence. Flav.: Much like the nose, less sweet than expected; some of the rich malts, some of the minty herbals, a bit of black licorice, nuttiness; a touch of alcohol and bitterness to finish.

Quite pleasant.

Arayaga2 (2122) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Medium brown... even-toned with a relatively dense tan head. Aroma is apple and spice, albeit rather faint. Taste is same, and but rather weak and generic. Carbonation is too fine for my palate, so it feels a bit fizzy. $8/750ml

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle, Aikmans, St Andrews. Dark brown, huge off-white head that laces well. Nose is rice krispies, slightly floral and some clear fresh grainy and slight amounts of diacetyl. Mouth is plummy, some rice krispies and lots of sweetness - some oranges towards the end. Lively gassy beer with a lasting plummy full sweetness. Rather good actually.

bottle. big frothy head, with good lacing. Cocoa, butterscotch, coffee swirl, some honey and fruit, evolving as it warms up. Good mouthfeel and balane, nice long finish. Excellent.

It poured a dark brown with a off white head. You can taste caramel, dark sweet fruits, and honey. Smell sweet and finishes with a warm, malt cherry flavor left on the tongue.

elmatador00 (519) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Pours a dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Alcohol is not masked very well. Has hints of some caramel, dark semi-sweet fruits, and warm spices. Finishes with a metallic spice taste on the tongue.

DrnkMcDermott (3003) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
33 cl bottle in tulip glass, "Best Before" 3-2-10 but dangit; I want it now! Deep mahogany pour with lots of sediment bits, slightly gray head. A light honey smell with a metallic twang. Taste is honey with bits of currants and plums to start. Very mellow throughout, with impressions of fresh black bread and Christmas pudding, then raisin cookies. Very warming, but no alcohol hotness. Were I more patient with this bottle, it might have smoothed out in a year or so. Dumping in the dregs at the end gives it some bite at the finish.
