YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Beige head over a mahogany body. Nose is a tad sweet, caramel, some vanilla. Hops. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated. Flavor was pleasant but not exceptional. A nice drink.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 15, 2004
pours a very pretty ruby/amber, with a dense tan head. aroma is richly malty, with roast and caramel notes, and a nice wif of piney hops on top. flavor is juicy-a nice full malty/toffee flavor with enough bitterness to balance. very nice mouthfeel and consequent drinkability. so far, one of the best domestic x-mas beers.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Bottle pours dark cherry, light brown hues, medium sized of-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, with light carbonation.   Aroma of evergreen trees and slightly burnt spices.   Malty up front, slight sweetness in the background, with a biscuity punch.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly tame.   Finishes rather quick, bland, with only notes of unsweetened cherries and biscuity malts.   Boring...

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Pours a deep Tawny port color with ruby red hues, thick creamy, redddish brown head.
head dissapates slowly and leaves a thick even glass coating lace.
Aroma is fruity, hoppy, flowery.
flavor is sweet, fruity,honey, mildly acidic, mildly spicy, with a piney hop background.
finish is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, with a touch of pine on the lips.
POS on 6 pack says it is "formidable enough to temper even the crankiest of spirits". Well it worked for me, I was in a bad mood and now Im not. lol

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2006 Bottle: reddish amber with a small off-white head. Aroma: grass, leaves, berries, spicy pine, citrus. Taste: spicy yeast, grass, pepper, grains, grapefruit, hops, roasted malts. Dry finish. 3. Re-rate: On tap at Papago brewing 12/2006: Same appearance, though showing some nice fruity scents in the nose: apples, berries, strawberry, as well as expertly proportioned hops (tasting very much of the English variety to me), earthy, grassy hops that blend perfectly with the sweet fruit and some earthy caramel malts. Taste has just the right amount of sweetness in the form of caramel, cola, light chocolate malts, strawberry, blackberry, and apple/fig fruits, counterbalanced by some mild grassy/bitter, earthy & floral hops. This one is much better on tap, or its improved better years that Ive tried it. Light-medium bodied, moderate carbonation. This one is so spot on for the style, its hard to believe its made by an American brewery, particularly in the hop-abused west. Well done.
