(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Black color, brown head. Milky chocolate aroma, cocoa, malts and some toffee. Malty chocolate flavor, roasted, cocoa and with a quite nice bitterness after a while. KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2007
Bottle at RBESG.
Coffee, raisins, a little campfire sourness. There is a nice edge to this one, a beer with no compromises. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
A Mes rate:
Bottle at RBESG. Chestnut colour with a small off white head. Nice balance but predominantly sweet and malty with some smoky, peaty notes. Spicy finish with just a hint of the otherwise well hidden alcohol. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottled at rbesg07. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, sweet pale malts, and hints of floural hop. Taste is similar, noteably fruity and yeasty, sweet berry fruity. However perhaps a bit unbalanced. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2007
Dark brown colored, little light brown head. Strongly hopped aroma with some biting, still positive glue tones. Medium bodied. Flavor is better with vegetable abd biting carbonation, reminds me of some Danish brews. Good beer.

Bottled (Thanks GarethYoung!). Small head, hazy brown colour. Aroma is plum, flowery hops and some malts. Flavour is the same along with some big acidic notes. Also some yeast, bread and slightly smoked notes can be found. TBone (17519) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2007

Hazy nut brown color, small white head. Yeasty, slightly toasted, chocolaty, a bit bready aroma. Yeasty ... did I already say yeasty? Some sweet roasted malts. Very difficult beer to rate.
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2007 Bottled. Cloudy dark brown. Sweet, rather yeasty and fruity. Medium-full bodied with caramelly roasty malt, some melon, some soap and a whiff of smoke. Fairly clean mouthfeel. Salty finish. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2007
(Bottled) Muddy darkish amber with almost no head. Malty, licorice-tarry and yeasty aroma with some alcohol. Neutral-malty, pretty roasty, yeasty flavor with licorice and some ashiness. Medium-bodied, medium-carbonated. Got the yeasty part of the bottle, so might be even better. cgarvieuk (24448) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2007
