Bottle, Uber Taven. Foggy brown mud color, with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, light alcohol, raisin. Taste is light alcohol, dried fruit, chocolate, old coffee, slight nutty character.

Boutip (5695) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Plucier: Poured a dark brown color beer with a huge foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of chocolate and dry raisins is enjoyable but definitely not what I was expecting. Taste is comprised of sweet malt with some nice notes of chocolates and dry fruits with a somewhat dry finish. Well done overall but definitely not what I was expecting for and Alt but again it is style that I don’t really know too well..

WeeHeavySD (3365) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2007
bottle via trade with dragonstout. Thanks for the bonus. Pours an odd light brown with a stable firm 2 finger off white head. The nose is sweet and strong. This is very malty and sweeter than I had expected. I don’t know if I would go as far as the commercial description and push this into the realm of German barleywine, but it is certainly more complex and bigger in taste than average German fair.

Poured murky pond water which subsided into a nice dark ruby red color with an off white head. Aroma of cherries and alcohol. Taste of sweet malt, light hops, and fruit with an alcohol burn finish. You can taste every bit of the 8.5% alcohol. Very different and not my type of brew.

330 at the Seattle International Beerfest. Pours deep murky brown with dense moussy tan head. Big roasty leafy nose. Bold attack--big body, firm carb, aggressive flavors. Deep earth and roast and wet leaves, clingy, burny finish. Wonderful stuff.

pours copper with fizzy khaki head. aroma is floral, herbal, funky, and sweet caramel malt. taste is a little funky with lots o euro hop and sweet caramel and toffee malt. finish has a very good tangy bitterness. good stuff but this is nothing like any alt ive ever had.

Murky brownish pour with frothy off-white head is fairly transparent. Palate is a little thin, although with nice carbonation and texture. Flavor is one of the most unique I’ve experienced: chewy malty start has a yeasty funk too it before a large amount of European hops dry it out. An engrossing quality takes over as the brew is enjoyed and the comparison to a barleywine is apt. Worth hunting out for it uniqueness.

holdenn (2106) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Cool flip top bottle looks rather gothic. Code 0509. Pours clear orange brown. Nose is abundant sweet malt cookie, bread, licorice, and alcohol .. nice. Sweet carmel/toffee flavors are contrasted with the tar/pine and alcohol. I’m enjoying this.

Bottle. Hazy copper color with a medium head. Aroma of burnt caramel and grass. Taste was caramel, raisins, toffee, and just a bit of sour malt vinegar. Heavy bodied. A little warm. Pretty nice.
