ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Pours cloudy amber. Nice fruits on the nose with a tinge of alcohol. Taste is a little sweet with a caramel alcohol burn that is by no means to rough. Feels pretty thick going down. Good stuff.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Appeared melon-red & fairly headless with a visible stickiness & a syrup-haze. At first, the ABV is well-hidden, but that all comes out later in Brandywine-force. Aromas instead were thickly malted and fruity with cherry, melon & rich caramel. (NOT present was the usual hop-assault associated with 3F.) Upon drinking, I was drowned in sweetness and alcohol (which isnít a bad way to go). The mouthfeel was thick and hot, with an unrelenting brandy-sweet afterburn. Aging this will create a masterpiece.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Draft at 3F. A dark ruby with a thin ring of white foamy head. Nose is malty and rich in dark fruits. Taste is more of the same. Very sweet. Medium-thick bodied. Grainy mouthfeel. Needs more complexity, but solid nonetheless.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Draft @ brewery. Pours a redish/light amber color with a small white foam head. Nose is malty with some sweet citrus notes. taste is very sweet, malt and caramel. Sweetness hits hard then backs off.

Radek Kliber (6710) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 25, 2005
This potent brew got appearance of dark ruby tea, minimal head. Sweet nose , malty . Plenty of alcohol around but not overpowering execution. Fruity front, warming alcohol presence, light touch of hop adds extra depth .Interesting.

ElGaucho (2309) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2005
A little bit of molasses in the aroma, barley-winish. Hazy, orangish, brown. Off-white ring with a little bit of lace. I have never had a "sextuppel". Donít even know what it means. Has a lot of alcohol, I know that. Very sugary. Belgian candi sugar? Nice.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Tap @ GTMW. Love the new artwork, by the way. Semi hazy copper brown in color with no head. Aroma is cleansing, with attributes of yeast, anise, nutmeg, starch, recently dried clothes, orange rind and curacau. Holy flavor - itís off the charts! Bitter-sweet orange crŤme with such a heavy, dense palate load. Nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet nectar pan out in this all out flavor brigade. Some caustic flavor element of honey soaked plantains serve as a spawn from the generative sweet malt support. Sticky, chewy and utterly uncompromising. Orange peel and honey in texture and taste. Such a cacophony of flavors. Some dactylic alcohol, but thatís bygones as this is utterly fantastic.

Philip (436) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest, Madison, 8/13/2005. This was my third attempt on this one, first thanks to Andy and second thanks to Edward (brooklynboy) springing for the $40 growler. Iím not a huge fan of Belgians, but Iíd drink this any day of the year. Caramel, toffee, butter, and vanilla with brown sugar and honey on the nose and palate. A nice sweetness with some funky sweet-sour notes that reminds me this is still a Belgian. Excellent stuff. Iíd like to see it age on bourbon barrels.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Hazy dark amber/brown w/ sparse, frothy light brown foam. Aroma is malty (chocolate, molasses, brown sugar), spicy, fruity (banana, pear) & lightly hoppy (pine, lemon). Full-bodied, creamy feel. Flavour is heavily sweet & spicy w/ warming notes of peppery alcohol.

TimE (4155) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2005
RBSG 2005. This beer was the last one I was able to take notes on and the notes are pretty lame, but I do remember (vaguely) really liking this beer. Deep rich amber color, caramel, raspberries, chocolatey nose. Full, rich syrupy body that is slightly flat and sweet. Alcholic warming finish
