Explosive cork that shot off the bottle after I removed the cage. Poured a massive faomy ahead atop the mahogany body. Aroma of rasins and cocoa with a hint of smoke and vanilla. Fruity, notes of plum and pear a very slight touch of smoke. Yeasty finish. Enjoyable.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Beautiful brown, translucent in appearance with a great creamy, fluffy head, leaving nice lacing tracks as we go along. Smells of golden raisins, pepper, anise and apple cinnamon. Flavor is most predominantly pepper, caramel and toffee. Sour red grape aftertaste. Great beer.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2011 I have had this beer a number of times over the years and have always been rather fond of it. I was surprised to see that I had not rated it yet so I grabbed another bottle. Sampled from a pretty 12 oz brown bottle this brew poured a chestnut color with a huge fluffy light brown head. The aroma is sweet malt and light berry. The flavor is strongly malty with light fruits, a hint of nut and a nice hop undertone. A sour fruity tang lingers on the finish.

UnsofistaCat (241) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2005
The sniff is amazing. Apples, moldy wood, smells like a picnic basket in heaven. Very interesting flavors. Obvious raisons, actually pretty hoppy. Swear it tastes like wine at times...not what I was expecting. Now for the negative: Way too thin and carbonated. I really wish I would of put this in the cellar for some serious aging...maybe that would of helped. Way to skinny for the fat bucks.

pours a attrative brown with white head. the flavor and nose are quite complex with hints of sweetness and fruit such as raisin. a nice malty character to it. even a little wine flavor to it. a really good beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2005
Caramel brown with a white head. The aroma is fantastic and very complex. Some rasins and malt and even a little smoke in the aroma. The nose on this bottle is fantastic and the closest to a 10 Ive drank yet. The first sip was chocolatey, yet bolder and stronger. The fruit flavor comes through in the end on the palate. Some sweet malt flavor as well. Strong on the palate with a little yeast flavor on the back side . Very flavorful brew. I cant wait to drink this one again.

scotty (1167) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2005
An import from Amsterdam from a pal whos just arrived back. Mid brown with a good firm white head, slightly hazy,but thats to be expected I suppose. VERY complex aroma, as the commercial description suggests, it is very rich, quite heady, but not overpowering, could "nose" this for hours..its lovely. On the palate,again, its a complex beast,big and fruity...a superb beer, shame Ive only got the one bottle.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2005
mild malt and yeast aroma, sweet but not fruity. a deep brown color with a creamy tan head. very full flavor, with hints of chocolate and a bit of red wine taste, along with some yeast and sweet malts. a great mouthfeel, a very full body, and and incredibly smooth taste.

bottle. mmmm...what a beer.pours a nice effervescent copper-brown with a huge frothy head that lingered and laced all the way down the glass. Perfect marriage of yeasty, fruity, malty and sour flavor. wonderful yeast flavor...very fruity and bready. great, great beer.
