Bottle: Cloudy copper color with a small, off-white head. The commercial description says malt dominates, but I taste a pretty strong hop presence. Bitter aftertaste is nice (as it warms up it turns sweet on the prolonged aftertaste) and it does have a smooth finish. It hides the alcohol well.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of malts, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe caramel, and hops. Flavor is a bitter, malty, and hoppy with a nice dry finish.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
Aroma of butterscotch, malt, caramel and hops, opaque copper, pours a small tan head. Flavour has caramel and malt, with a touch of hop, taste is slightly less than nose indicated. Well balanced, very well made, good mouthfeel and the alcohol isnt noticed. Very fine example! Thanks for sharing tupalev!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Pours a deep, rich, dull copper penny color w/ a full, semi creamy froth. Superb head retention w/ thick, sticky lacing. Nice! Aroma has a nice hopsy boquet w/ malted cracker jax. Medium to full nectar with creamy residual effers. Big and malty w/ a better than mild hop profile that balances it all out immediately. Huge flavors of molases, leather, and citrus rind w/ a defined malted cracker jax character. Fat caramel meets stabbing citrus rind. "He fell on my knife ten times your honor". The finish is long on flavor w/ a well defined citrus rind bittering component. Highly recommended.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle. Mild malt and alcohol in aroma, with slight hints of brown sugar and caramel. Dark copper, very hazy, small thick orangeish white head - nice. Sweet malt taste. Touches of caramel, with slight tea-like hops and absolutely no alcohol. Mouthfeel is surprisingly watery and on the thin side, which does detract. This is a mild strong ale which you would expect much more prominent flavours from. What is there though is good and I ultimately enjoyed it. Shared with DougShoemaker.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2006
35 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of light caramel and malt. Flavour of hops and light caramel. Ends up very refreshing with a sweet and bitter finish.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Nice reddish-copper color. Pleasant malt aroma, nice subtle fruit notes. Flavor is smooth and rich, almost creamy malty. Finishes lightly sweet, nice touch of hops. A very nice drinking beer. Cant even taste the alcohol presense.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2006
This is a great session beer. Lots of big malt flavors, but still remains extremely well balanced and easy to drink. Some great fruitiness in their as well, and just enough hops in the aftertasteto finish out the fine balancing act.

dkoonce (911) - Peoples Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep amber red with a full head. A wonderful aroma of citrus and pears. Not too heavy with a definite alcohol taste. Not too bitter or malty.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Comes across like a big amber ale, in color and in flavor especially. Very malty, sweet, with caramel, fresh apples, and an earthy hop bitterness to balance it out. Quite drinkable, and with a 7.7% ABV, potentially dangerous.

By the way, this is my first censored Kronik. Ever.
