A good tasting beer with an extra kick of 7%ABV biergeek (3) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2001 does not count
Nose is estery and spicy, some hints of earthy hops, and a dash of caramel underneath. Lots of CO2 wafting up as well. Medium-bodied beer, with a fair amount of carbonation, leaving the odd feeling of creaminess and prickliness at the same time. Main flavors are a maltiness accented by caramel and chocolate hints, along with some earthy hops in the mix. Finishes very, very balanced, with a firm bitterness taking over at the end. Alcohol is reasonably well-hidden. A pretty good beer, if a bit unexciting. erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 1, 2002
Nothing, I mean Nada special about this. At three dollars a bottle I would expect more. Nice rocky head with a very light amber hue. The texture is light as well. Lightly malted and very little hop prescence as in none at all. 7.1% is well hidden but doesn’t need to be. All in all very dissapointing. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 15, 2003
Flat tea brown with large soapy head and a good dose of chunky crap floating around in it. Smell is very esterrific, with tea leaves and a hint of shortbread, and a dash of worchester sauce for good measure. The flavor is very sweet with only minimal hopping, but a luxurious, sappy maltiness. Overall it's a bit doughy for my tastes, and this stuff reeks of alcohol.

Aroma was malty, alcoholic and vanilla. Slightly cloudy, some rye bread, malt. Dry finish. Not impressed with this one.
