Weird dark fruit, spice nose. Cloudy ruby orange hue. Small head quickly dissipates. Terribly sweet, port/brandyish. Weird brew, although I did rush through this, Im wasnt terribly impressed and had trouble finishing. Slightly disgusting, I wouldnt buy this again.

Bottled 4/96, this one was way off!!! Terribly sour, much more so than it is supposed to be. Strange "stoney" flavor, minerals and dirty rocks. Yes, all that mixed with the sourness made for an interesting drink. I will rerate when I find a fresh (or better cellared) bottle.

omhper (23324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2003
Bottled. Cloudy range-brown. Yeasty nose with notes of oranges. Sweet, fruity and malty with some butterscotch and a syrupy finish with medium bitternes.

jazz88 (2664) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 21, 2003
Bottle. A murky reddish brown color with a light brown head. A strong aroma with whisky, rum, cake, dates, and caramel. A smooth, sweet, spicy flavor with plenty of alcohol and a rich brandy like character.

bierkoning (12280) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2003
Orange brown color, small head. Malty aroma with apple, caramel and butter. Sweetish with just a bit of roasted malt, toffee, caramel, butter and mustard. Bitter coffee and toffee finish. It takes a few sips, but then it's a nice and smooth beer.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAY 7, 2003
This ale pours a cloudy, reddish amber color with lots of yeast particles floating in it. It has a very thin, white head that rapidly dissipates. The aroma is musty and reminds me of sour fruits. Medium body with little carbonation, the flavor is slightly fruity but annoyingly bland. The finish is sweet and fruity with a mild tartness. The alcohol is well hidden. This beer seems like it could be so much more. I don't really think too much of this one. It has no off flavors but it seems rather bland and flat tasting. But it does have some decent fruit notes.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - APR 12, 2003
Sweet, fruity, and tart flavor. Finishes almost wine like and bitter. By the way why is the pig wiping his ass on the label.

rauchbier (3793) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Hazy amber orange, thin white head and low condition. Mix of oranges, malt and toffee in the nose. Initialy fruity sweet malt in the mouth became slightly apple-tart towards the end before a short sweet bitter finish laced with mild tartness.

fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2003
Cochonnette. Beautiful red-amber color. Aroma of malt; warm alcohol. Good body strength, but average malt presence and a touch of alcohol; warming. Strong ale, lacking of character.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 4, 2003
Amber color with a ton of "floaties". Fizzy foamy head. I don't suppose it would be quite as fizzy if I had not dropped it as I checking in at the hotel and the cap started to leak and I was forced to sip it over the cap as I went to my room... Sweet yellow currant aroma. Sweet honey and grape flavors. Really sweet. Light pepper and orange in the finish. Much to sweet for my tastes.
