A very fine beer with long lasting flavor and a very bold toasted cocoa/coffee ending. Lacing was fair and head was spare, color a beautiful amber. jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2005
I really liked this beer. It had a nice brown color to it. It was not as bitter as I thought it would be. A decent beer. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Had during a beer tasting party. Poured a transparent brown and smells buttery. Not bitter for being ESB but very enjoyable. HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
Poured a translucent burnt orange. Cigar-like sweet malt aroma; buttery and quite bready yeast. In fact, rather like bread and butter. Flavour is pleasantly bitter with a touch of what I would describe as maple. Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Deep nutty brown with a reddish hue and a small, creamy head. Very full-bodied and surprisingly strong. Malty and spicy with a nutty character and a certain sweetness. Impressive hop composition. 200301

Dark amber colour. A shortly lasting white head. Soft aroma of hay and some fruit. Only little a carbonation - but a nice smooth feeling. Flauvour of hops and peach. Nice bitter finish.

Available as 500 mL brown bottle from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 5.98%. Labeled “Best before 1/6/06” and bottle opened on 11/8/05. Clear dark amber having spare white head with no discernable lacing. Notable aroma of toffee and cherry. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied that starts dry with a hint of sweet roasty maltiness with hints of toffee and finishes dry with light hoppy bitterness.

Brown, cloudy with a light tan head that quickly faded. A good body with a nice balance. Nice mouth feel, mellow. It was five months beyond the "consume by date," when I drank it. Perhaps that is why the hops seemed to fade.
