Aroma: some cream, malts, and carmel. Also some fruity metallic scents and some pine
3fourths (9332) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Appearance: very dark brown with a slight reddish tint, light brown head, some lacing
Flavor: sweet, fruity, carmel flavors with a strange off-taste...almost like a metallic lambic taste (very strange)
Palate: very smooth with that weird aftertaste that leaves almost a tartness in the mouth
I wish I could find out what kind of malts, hops and yeast this beer used... it would help my dilema. For starters, it has a mild spiced pinecone and wood nose, but the flavor has some slightly unpleasent metallic meaty flavors. The entire experience clashes in my mouth: biting, prickly sharp palate, with an unsettling pungent grass or moss flavor. The flavors resemble Hood Canal Big Beef Stout a lot, so I’m interested in specifically what is the cause. Ernest (7669) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2005

Obvious problems in the aroma, sour finish, another scary sample from BB. Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2005
This brew pours with a muddy brown body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note, a touch of alcohol and a little dark fruit. The flavor is slightly sweet and malty with a slight roastiness and a little hops, as well as, a little sourness. Medium bodied, slightly dry and a touch warming.

This beer was sampled at the 12 Hour Belgian Beer Festival 2005 at Pizza Port Carlsbad, thanks to Dr. Bill. This beer pours a cloudy, murky brown color with a soapy white head and a small degree of lacing. The aroma is malty, nutty and heavily vanilla...you can almost smell the stickyness. The flavor is medium bodied, very very sticky, malty and nutty. Strangely enough though it breaks down into a hoppy floral finish. This finished extremely citrusy and acetic....making this beer almost unbearable to put down after a while. Not worth another visit.

My absolute Favorite!!!
The other descriptions tell you what it tastes like, but I just have to say that the bottle doesn’t come anywhere near close than on tap! Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Dark leather. Moderately aromatic, malt accented with hints of dark fruits, corn, caramel and citrus fruits. Mild, malt driven flavor with hints of cocoa and plum Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Nice sweet vanilla aroma. Taste is malty enough, but came off kind of chemically. Balanced bitterness. Finish was funky and off. I was expecting more, oh well. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2005
Dark brown rich looking body but the flavour was a little thin. Nice aroma of spruce. Soome flavour, cocoa, in the malts and a smooth finish.
