cyrenaica (1159) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
330ml bottle
8.4% ABV
Special Pauwel Kwak glass (Priceless)
I tried this beer on October 21, 2008 at "Smokeless Joes" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer was poured into the special Kwak glass a translucent golden red, highly effervescent, and with a long lasting white head. The aroma was yeast, fruity, with some hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, with medium to high carbonation. The flavour was sweet malt, plummish tones, and a bitter finish.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2008
330ml bottle, poured into a standard Kwak yard glass with holder. Reddish toffee color, off white creamy head. Smells of malt, mustard seed, a small bit of alcohol, lots of cereal. Dry texture. Tart flavor, spiciness, friut, clove, some dark fruit, and a hint of vanilla. Lots going on. Very nice. Smoked trout, nice Kerrygold Iverson, and sesame water crackers. nice pairing, Yum. Finishes with banana yeast character, with alcohol.

Bottled. This amber beer tastes of cereal sweetness and bananas. Enjoyable enough on its own merits, but I tend to expect something more memorable if drinking something of this high an ABV.

Rune (13186) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2008
330ml bottle, 8.4% ABV, shared with Finn. Poured a vanilla coloured resting over an amber body with a slight haze. Rounded aromatic sweet dark fruits. Sweet caramel malts and late oranges in the taste joined by spicy notes. Yeast and alcohol on the swallow. Likeable [Tromsø, 22.11.2008].

BeerSlacker (34) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2008
Orange, copper colour. Toffee nose and sweet aroma. Caramel body. Lingering toffee finish. A touch sweet for my personal taste, but a decent beer overall. Served in traditional, crazy glassware.

ZappaFan (6) - Bronx, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2008 does not count
Sweet, caramel-like. Spicy aftertaste. the head didn’t hold up well. Pretty good beer overall, would recommend.

2.8
EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2008
Bottle. Pretty much lacking in everything. Head immediately vanishes, little aroma - malt and alcohol, some fruit but not enough for the style and a surprisingly thin body for its ABV. Nothing nasty, reasonably pleasant but ultimately too straightforward and a disappointment.

3.6
EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Aroma of banana baby good, not translated in taste. Just an easy drinking beer, nice, balanced amount of malt, fruit and spice, with some light candy sweetness.

3.3
oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a darkish red/brown. Aromas of spice, coriander, yeast, and alcohol. Flavor has an alcohol taste to it, mixed with a nice smokey dark fruit. Also has strong hints of spice and orange.
