COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Remember this being raw and rather harsh. An "ugh" reaction upon swallow... not something I would search out again . . .

I keep buying it, drinking it, and remembering that I don’t like it. Too syrupy. Makes me want to stop drinking and go to sleep. Maybe that is where they get the name. If it wasn’t in a fancy botle with cool psychadelic art I don’t think it would even be considered on a "good" beer list.

hmm...not brown / red as people say. Tap, cloudy, pale yellow. Skunky, dry banana, strong yeast aroma. Sour, sweet, ...not great. tastes like lots of stuff I don’t like. black licorish....citricy, acidic. A little bubblegum. weird.

Pours a brown/red murky color with huge head. Aroma is malts and alcohol. Interesting taste. I taste alcohol, tobbacco and apricots- or some fruit along that line. Strong, but pleasant alcohol flavor. Kind of like eating, smoking, and drinking all at once. A very drinkable ale; not my favorite, but definatly worth trying.

(bottle into a duvel tulip) Aroma of sweet malts, ethanol and apricots. Pours a cloudy mahogany with dirty white head. Fizzy with a shallow finish. Notes of ethanol and sugar cookies. Not too shabby.

Wow, malty smell, also can smell the alcohol. The taste is malty, you can taste the alcohol, it’s like a party of flavor in my mouth, great.

Reddish, brown colour with a dense beige head. Spicy and fruity aroma with sweet malty notes. Malty, sweet flavor with spicy and fruity notes and an alcohol sweet finish. Too carbonated.

Sampled from 750ml bottle. Hazy with a maple brown hue. Thick beige head. Cookie yeasty nose. Lively and sweet. Pruney notes with a nice bready flavor. Notes of toffee. Nice effervescence. Off dry palate. Cinnamon and spices. Sugary long finish. Good staple.

750 mL bottle. Reddish brown with big fluffy light tan head. Tart aroma of fruit and malt. Very bright palate. Tart cherry flavor giving way to a slightly sour tobacco taste.
