ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bottled. Allright have to say I got hit with a mild skunky aroma right when I opened this. After poured, however, it quickly faded. Is this bottle tainted... I am not sure. After the initial blast mentioned before the aroma was dominated by a nutty maltiness and the taste followed. There was a small presents of hops in the aftertaste. This beer did not have a lot to offer in my book and I am not at all impressed. May have to rerate due to the bottle possibly being bad.

swiseman (444) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 16, 2005
strong aroma that hits right away; decent head and lacings. The taste is nothing particularly special, but it is very well-balanced and hops are used well without being overpowering. probably the best Wychwood offering.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2005
brown/amber color with a tan head. Aroma is faint but earthy with a slight bitterness. Flavor has some roasted nuttiness with a nice medium malt body and finishes up with a clean hop bitterness. Nothing overpowering but well balanced. Easy to drink beer and the bottle looks nice too.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 12, 2005
dark redish brown, light brown head. malty with a little nut in the flavor. slightly bitter, not too hoppy. very nice to find ales that are more bitter than hoppy in the states.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Pour is a very dark red with a white head. Aroma is hard to detect but I mostly got some dark fruit in there. Flavor is dark caramel and dark fruits with a nice peaty and earthy aftertaste. I have seen this brew for a long time w/o picking it up and now im wondering what took me so long. A very nice bitter brew.

Dark-ambr color with a frothy tan-colored head, caramelized malt, nutty, flower hops aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a grainy, earthy, malty character, toasted malt, toffee note, leading towards a juicy hoppy finish.

Nicely carbonated, and hopped. A little to strong on the bourbonesque taste though. Reminds me of liquor. Just another half-good english ale. Aroma is pretty much the same as the flavor. A nice smooth palate is the only thing that stands out. Malty bodied. with an abrupt finish.

Damn fine beer. Attractively dark, rich, and full body. Great flavor with a satisfying finish. I wish I could find this on tap in Knoxville, but I’ll have to be content with bottles.
