Amber with towering creamy head with grainy nose. I detected hints of citrus and apricot. Initial impression is sweet and malty with prominent alchohol. Bitterness hits quickly but fades quickly as well leaving a long tart finish with lasting sweetness. stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2004
Very nice price for such a treat. I really like this beer. Sweet, but the alcohol backs up the sweetness. Reminds me of a weakish Icebock or a healthy Blond Dopplebock. Malt flavor dominates the taste. Hops add a background business, and are not obtrusive. Light in color with a head that actually lingers for a bit despite the alcohol. 9.1%

Nice amber color. HUGE dense head when dumped in a glass. Mildly sweet and malty,hint of caramel. I paid $1.89 for a 13.52 oz bottle. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Pours a one-finger white bubbly head leaving a ring and not much lace. Clear light, amber color. Medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Nose is sweet. Starts and finishes sweet. The high ABV is not really noticeable. An excellent choice. $3.50 for a 400ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottle pours amber, small milky white head, decent lacing, with lively carbonation. Sweet grains on the nose, slight banana & clove as well. Up front its sweet malts on the tongue, sweet grass/grain in the middle, but quickly it turns into a somewhat harsh hairspray/medicinal/metallic flavor at the end. This beer had me all the way up to the finish. Otherwise, good body and a slightly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel. That 9.1% ABV is quite noticable.

Beer poured the color of honey, a little cloudy and nice carbonation. Head dissipated to cloud above the ale within a couple of minutes, but leaving globs of lace. Aroma brings sweet malt to mind, the flavor of caramel. Nice strong malt up front, good bitterness, nice hop balance. Strong tasting ale, but. 9% ABV is very deceptive. Finishes bitter. Pretty good drinking stuff, I will definitely do these again. Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2004
The aroma is very sweet - no wonder with the 9.1% ABV - and it has notes of peaches and yeast. The color is dark amber and it has a beutiful lasting off-white head. The flavor is also sweet with notes of peach and alcohol. A nice beer to give warmth on a freezing winter night. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Lighter bronze color, sizeable head. Aroma of light fruit and some malt. Flavor is pretty sweet, malty, a little fruity, with a bit of an alcohol kick. Slightly bitter finish. Medium body, a little harsh but not too bad. dberger624 (1028) - Voorhees, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Bottled. Only thing this one had going was malt and alcohol. warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Slight fruity aroma. Malty sweet flavor with some alcohol taste. Finish has a little yeast flavor. Reminds me a little bit of a Maibock. This is a decent beer but I would like more flavor to help mask the alcohol more.
