DocLock (8500) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Turbid orangish brown color with a huge head. Aroma of malt, hops, citrus, barnyard. Tastes malty, fruity, with finishing orange, cranberry, toffee, caramel, and even watermelon. Smooth finish with well hidden alcohol and a multitude of flavors that seem to go together. Very complex and enjoyable.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 11, 2004
From an 11.2oz bottle. Best before 01/01/07. Tasted at 52 degrees in a tulip glass. Dark brown with a big cream colored head that sticks around, maybe too long. Plenty of lacing. Sweet, malty aroma. Raisins, fruits, sour candies. It takes a minute or two for the nose to open up. Flavor is sweet and has notes of ripe banana, yeast, bread, plums, and malt. Sweetish, dry finish with some nice residual flavors. It is maybe a bit too sweet for me. This was tasted after the Trois Pistoles, I found that to be a more complex beer.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 Cloudy dark brown with a thin white head. Super sweet malty aroma. Tastes of sweet raisins and prunes. Slightly bitter finish. Re-Rate. Murky and brown with a thick tan head that seems to just sit with no ability to subside. Malty aroma with some chocolate, raisins, prunes, cinnamon and dough. Lively flavor of prunes, grapes, raisins, caramel, chocolate, bread and alcohol. Somewhat warm finish with some yeastiness left on the tongue. I simply cant say enough about this beer, top o the heap.

badgerben (4595) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Black color with a thin head. Aroma of bread. The bread turns bitter in the taste. There really isnt much depth here other than some yeast and bread. Decent, but not great.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
Hugely yeasty, malty and fruity aroma. Plenty of yeast in suspension in the amber-brown body with lasting covering of small-bubbled, tan head. Sweet, malty, caramelly flavour with plums and raisins. and a decent balancing bitterness. Cremy, chewy mouthfeel and medium-full body. A nice way to warm up before heading out for the Grey Cup game in Ottawa. Bottle enjoyed with CapFlu and Lubiere.

Lubiere (10998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Brown ale with reddish hues, off white head. Sweet fruity malt aroma, and sweet raisiny malts with a nice hop/alcohol moutfeel which was sustained, Creamy and complex. Thanks to Capflu.
