Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & blankboy - courtesy of jerc. Hazy amber, small head. Very nice aroma, sweet brown sugar and a fruity backnote. Decent body. Pleasant flavour, fairly sweet and malty, short finish. Not too bad.

Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - bottle courtesy of jerc. Hazy copper with a small white head, floaties. Nice spicy sweet yeasty apple and brown sugar malt aroma. Flavour follows the aroma, musty and yeasty, nice sugar/malt balance. Light body, sweet and syrupy, quick finish. Nicest of the 4 Hets we had tonight.

Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours deep amber with a tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, fruit, caramel. The flavor is caramel, fruit, and carbonation. Great beer.

WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Beer 21 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/2/06 bottled and drank at The Brugge Bear in Brugge, Belgium. This is a high quality beer but there was something about it that didn’t agree with me. As I was on this trip my brother he liked it and thought it was similar to Celebrator, I’d say its likely a fine beer for most, but I couldn’t drink it.

TChrome (1481) - North Richland Hills, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Very cloudy medium mahogeny color with a totally retained, creamy off white colored head. Aroma is nicely malty with notes of chocolate and nuts as well as a nice yeast aroma and a whiff of alcohol. Flavor is quite unexpectantly fruity with a bit of chocolate, also some roasted nuts. The finish is a bit of a mess with lots of spiciness. I would like to try a fresher/better cared for example as a bunch of the beers that I bought from a particular Sherman Oaks retailer showed sign of improper storage.

Nagash (207) - Paris, FRANCE - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle (33 cl), bought in belgium. Rosted malt, strong alcohol taste, some caramel, fruits. Quite good, but drunk too cold.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours orange/brown with a large light tan head that lasts until the finish. Aroma of slight roasted malts, citrus, fruit, caramel, and spices. The flavor is smooth, caramel, fruit, and citrus. Good malty body, good brew.
