Very malty beer, with low hop flavor. Really enjoyable. Very enjoyable. Nice warming beer. Perfect for the winter. I really liked it. Caramel aroma and clean tasting. Brown in color.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Malty carmel aroma and clean. Big malt flavor, lowm hop, with carmel dominating. Very drinkable and a good effort. Many thanks to Lubiere.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2003
This beer rocks! Sparkling clear and as coppery as a freshley-minted penny. Not much of a head. Some chocolate notes and yeasty, doughy characteristics along with geueze in the aroma. Very malty flavor with rich cream and butter in the flavor. Sherry and alcohol too. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. World Class Brew!

This ale is a bit on the watery side. It's malty, but it comes across thin.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Dark tawny color, slight haze. Little to no head.Faint aroma of malt and treacle/molasses. Flavor is malt and molasses up front, very little hops, in the finish. Alcohol comes through in the mid-taste. Surprisingly thin for darkness and strength.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Looked just like a coca cola, minus all of the effervescence. Mild malt aroma, caramel. Coffee toffee in the taste. It had an annoying, lingering aftertaste that bothered me. More alcohol came out as it warmed.

Toffee in nose and flavor - a tad sweet. Was afraid it would be one of those "nice bottle, but ,,," I get tired of mentioning "roast" falvor in stouts, guess if it's not there I should say something. Not bad, not all that impressive either.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Bottle. Dark amber with a small head. Nice toffee aroma that doesn't quite follow through in the flavor...it just dort of burns out into ordinary-tasting malts. The mouthfeel is excessively thin, especially for the strong alcohol content. Drinkable but not great.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2003
Deep red clear with small beige head. Surprisingly light pleasant floral hops and light roast malt aroma. Body is thin but slightly cloying, kinda syrupy like a flat watery over sugared cola. I don't find the combination of flavors in this one all that attractive, bruised roast malt, disinfectant, and pine tarry. The finish is stale bitter with a hint of something medicinal like Senega or friars balsam.
