Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle, about 1 week after its due date. Wonderful colour; deep-deep amber. Unfortunately not too much foam at fridge temperature (bad me). Lively aroma of dark malt, plum, raisins and some metal. Could be that the bottle is old, but there’s a nasty taste in this. Something sticks out, nettles or rubber or vinegar... Other than that, the taste is full and rich of plum, alcohol and vinegar.

Hansen (6602) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
Clear, amber beer. Beide head. Lasting and lacing. Has a nice malty, slightly burnt aroma. Flavor is malty too, perhaps a bit salty. Finish is bitter.

Svesse (6137) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2006
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm) Colour is dark ruby with a beige, frothy, disappearing, head. Nose is malty with notes of chocolate and dark fruit (cherries?). Taste is malty with chocolate, nuts and dark fruit. Some malty sweetness, but still fairly dry. Medium body. Balanced bitterness with some hops in the finish. Good beer, but lacking something extra.

Haack (101) - Hornslet, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
Bottle: Dark brown color with a nice Head. Big malty aroma with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is a malty and a little thin. Not something that envokes a strong reaction but rather refreshing.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Bottle. Mahogany with a small frothy tan head. Nose is bready with sweet malts, soft cocoa, and light grains. Some hints of grassiness as well. Taste is malt and caramel with some grass notes and strong bready flavors. Body is creamy and smooth with a medium overall feel. Finishes with more caramel, grains, bread and light spicy hops. Nice!

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2006
Poured a fairly true brown with a thick head that hung around for a little while, then faded to a thin layer. Aroma of raisins, molasses and a hop/yeast thing that had me thinking of some pommy ales. Not a bad balance in the flavour initially, but it gets a little sweet after a while, with the malt dominant and the hops nowhere to be seen (or tasted). A bit soda-like and a somewhat oily mouthfeel, the aftertaste is quite bready and satisfying. A decent, if not challenging, beer.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle: Mahogany ruby color, light head and light lacing. Nose of raisin, plum, sweet wort and clean yeast and hops. The flavor is balanced, decent body and a nice rye toasty dark bread quality. The finish is nicely balanced with some sweetness. Good dark toffee and medium grain malts.

IndianaRed (2416) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle Pours a dark chestnut brown witha medium tan head and thin sticky lacing. Aroma was very nice sweet woody and carmely malt ensemble. Flavor I thought was lacking much of anything. Slightly roasted and dark but papery and slightly astringent. Dissapouinting after the big tease in the aroma. Feel was a bit thin and the carbonation was fairly soft. Thanks Buch Dich for this one.
