UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 The bottle is really cool. The color is a very dark amber with a thin head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is sweet bubblegum and pears. As it warms, I also smell nutmeg.The taste is full with a dry apple cider with black pepper spice at the end. The finish is also smooth and bready. This is obviously a quality beer.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 2004 bottle. Wonderful burnished copper color, with a small beige head. Quite bubbly and filtered unfortunately; crystal clear. Aroma of dry hay, some light leather tannins, a bit of metal, lightly bitter, soily hops. Flavor is dry, old tasting, with those soily hops and lightly doughy yeast taking mainstage. Plenty of toasted malt in the back. Body is medium with an unspectacular finish, albeit fairly clean. Nothing to write home about it seems, but a well-made beer.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2004
A middelbrown ale with a rich but uncoplex aroma off malt and hops.The taste is dry malty and then powerfull hoppy. The afthertaste is fading in bitterness.

Super fruity nose. Scant head. The palate is light, fruity, and bitter. Very earthy and dry. A little smoke.

Clear copper body topped by medium off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, malty, caramel, cookie dough, some perfume, light herbal. Taste is medium sweet, earthy, bready, finishing earthy, some herbal, and light caramel. Medium body. Certainly bitter for the style.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Copper, red, see through in appearance, and has a medium white head. Malty aroma, smells pleasing. Bitter up front in flavor, and frankly, too bitter for th emalt that it has. It is tasty, but not blended very well with the hops. Not as good as Diebels.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2004
I could be wrong but this is probably my first altbier. And I liked it. The nose is malty and creamy with just a tab of candy caramel to it. THe taste is malty and caramel with I think is wheat but not in an offensive way. The Body is average.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Amber with a white head. Caramel, spice, malt, pepper to the nose. Medium body with blah mouthfeel. Flavor was nondescript. Vanilla? Anise? Malt? Nothing stood out. Nice bottle, anway. Otherwise, nothing to impress.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2004
This is terribly interesting, given my limited exposure to the style. To be frank, the beer came across not unlike Anchor Steam: a lot of English ale fruitiness beaten into submission by rough bitterness. Great looking head and profound aroma, though not a smell I particularly like. Reminscent of a lot of early 90s east cost micros, actually.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Copper in color with medium to high of carbonation. Small lasting off-white head that laces nicely. Flavor is slightly roasted and nutty with a bitter zing in the end. There’s a lasting bitterness in my mouth that’s makes you want to have another sip.
