UPDATED: SEP 19, 2005 Bottle. Pours nice looking amber, ruby with nice head. Strong roasty aroma. Bold, flavorful, complex, malty flavor, some smoky notes, very hoppy as well. Very aggressive but well balanced. Strong.

AlexDonovan (14) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Bottle, 2005. Crushing. Somewhat similar to my beloved 03 but ramped up, especially in malt. Drinkable fresh, but would probably be best with years of cellaring. Not recommended to pound the last third of the bottle. (Long story, even longer morning the next day).

Huge tiramisu nose and full of flowers from australia. The taste did not let anyone down especially superman because he can fly anyway.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Sweet nose with hints of brandy, underlying hoppyness. Reddish to amber colored brew, small off-white head. Very sweet flavor, fruity, alcohol, quite boozy, but its nice.

Lou18 (1353) - West Paterson, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2005
04 Bottle. Orange amber with short lived head. Nose was dark fruits with sappy pine hops and caramel. Taste was the same, with alcohol lingering on the palate. Not as great as other stone offerings.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 1, 2005
bottled. orange colour with a quickly-diminishing head. aroma of alcohol, stone fruit and pine needles. slight toffee and some grapefruit and then a big hit of alcohol that lingers in the mouth. just doesns’t have anything special about it

slightly hazy golden. aroma of booze, earth, piney hops, wood and big caramel. some fruity notes of apricot and peach with cotton candy and mixed fruit. sweet boozy, hoppy finish. very sweet, needs aging

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2005
04 Bottle. Kinda orangey coppery pour. Sweet and woody caramel aroma and flavors. I also got other fruits, like apples or pears in the flavor. Alcohol was pretty present. Sorta medium bitter finish, but not assertively bitter.
