Remember this being raw and rather harsh. An "ugh" reaction upon swallow... not something I would search out again . . . jm1907 (18) - P=Town, California, USA - JUL 12, 2007
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. aarossell (151) - Grandville, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2007
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. teebeer (24) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2007
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. orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 28, 2007
(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. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2007
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. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 18, 2007
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. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
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. ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2007
