Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 31, 2006
The aroma had molasses, coriander, dark fermented fruit, and was malty sweet. The beer poured a cloudy brown color with thin head and lacing. The flavor had caramel, molasses, dark fermented fruit, and slight spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and creamy.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2006
A brown red coloured beer, with an average off-white head and some light carbonation. Sweet malty and caramel aroma, rather soft, little yeasty with some alcohol. Full sweet taste, some light carbonation. Finish is bitter sweet, little alcoholic with an burned caramel taste. Strong and good beer, very enjoyable.

Habanero (3430) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2006
0.7 l bottle: Pours with a nice and creamy, beige head, a deep amber and cloudy body. Aroma of dried fruit, dark malt and caramel. This returns in the flavour. Medium to full bodies. It got a pleasant sour and bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

Beaver (1507) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2006 11.2 oz bottle, best before 3/2/10. Pours a reddish brown with a large fizzy head that quickly goes to a thin film.

The aroma is sweet woody malts, some dough, some cream, and a little pepper.

The flavor is sweet bready malts, dark fruits, and yeast with a slight bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium-full and a little harsh on the carbonation.

Overall, it is rather similar to the Pater 6. I liked that one better though.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Poured a slighthly hazy deep red with a full and lasting tan head and good lacing. Aroma is very strong and consists of candied fruits and caramel topped nuts. Flavour starts out very sweet and malty with a good dose of fruits and again a slight nuttiness. the nut character is reminiscent of sherry. It has a watery complexion but plenty of residual sweetness to give a sense of fullness.

BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Aroma of malt, biscuit, and other can’t really pinpoint belgium yeast charactistics. Reddish-brown with off white head. Slightly cloudy with yeasties floating around in there but to be expected. Kinda like the little brother to the Bernaruds 12. Good malt flavor with hints of bread and maybe even a touch of chocolate b/c I was looking for it. Medium to full bodies with a tad too much carbonation for my taste but with the approriate range. Getting better as it warms. Pretty dam tasty...

TheEpeeist (3604) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2006
11.2 oz bottle. 04 08 10 (?). Dark brown with ruby edges. Dense tan-white head with spots of powdery dregs; coats ’til the end. Walls of lacing. Yeast, cocoa, woody alcohol and subtle cherry. Alcohol very prominent at first but silky mouth smooths it out. Sort of a smoky melon that sours into dry wild mushrooms. Good; different.

Bottle, at Benny. Dark brown with a light brown head, good lacings. Aroma moderate/heavy malty (brown sugar, raisin, plum) and hoppy. Flavor moderate/heavy sweet and bitter, in good balance. Medium/full body, syrupy, soft carbonated. Moderate in alcohol.
