Deep reddish brown color, frangrant aroma. One of my favorites and I drink this very often. The spices and the sweetness of the beer blends very well and leaves a wonderful aftertaste and mouth-feel.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2004
Beautiful deep burdundy with a moderate tan head. Appealing aroma of fruit and spice and candy. Medium body with a slight fizz. However, to me, the flavor was unpleasant. Too astringent.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2004
Very dark amber. Light continuous head. Strong fruity wine/port aroma. Classy flavour. Sweet cherry and chocolate. Alcohol kick. Almost demands a fancy cigar, steak or desert.

wow, this is a really good beer. cant believe its rated 96%. awesome pour, huge head that lasts the whole glass and when you refil it, same thing. dark red in color. fruity smell with a nice sweetness. taste is sweet smooth and somewhat hoppy. slight taste of raisans and some hints of chocolate. this is a most excellent beer. finish is dry and and leaves a wonderful aftertaste.

Dark red-brown in color with a thick head. Nice balance in the flavor. Hearty flavors best with hearty meal Id bet.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 I bought this bottle in July 2001, and have cellered it until now. Pours a cloudy brown, looks like apple cider. The aroma is fruit, alcohol, and some raisins. Taste is also fruit and raisins, only slightly sweet.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2004
In the bottle at the Dundee Dell. This is a big beer with a big mouth feel. Very fruity and berry-like. Strong alcohol burn as it should be. Dark crimson color with an ivory head. Sure, its sweet, but the sweetness is easily masked by the strength of the malt character.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Nice pour, attractive burgundy color. Starts off sweet with a touch of alcohol and blends nicely into a caramel flavor with a hint of spices. I will have to re rate this beer again soon.
