MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 31, 2005
12 oz bottle pours a hazy orange- amber with a nice creamy lasting light brown head that leaves some lacing in my glass. Fruity pear and chocolate aromas, bread, caramel, honey and whiskey flavors, medium bodied with a soft and full mouthfeel, finishes with a mild sweetness, a decent bock.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

Clear autumn red with a thin white head that’s gone faster than cool papa bell turning off the light switch. Aroma of bread, toffee, toasted malt and sticky buns. Taste of toffee, sweet malt, Munich malt, rye and grains. Finishes up a half shade dry.

Finhead (1815) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2010 A dark amber pour with small tan head. The aroma is a bready malt with apple and some raisin. The smooth taste is a malty caramel with dark fruit. The finish is dry and sweet.

Hazy, ruddy amber pour, noticeably sediment, good effervescence. Large but quick fading beige head, minimal lace. Aroma is primarily toffee, with an apple cider backup. First impression of the flavor is also a lot of toffee-laden Munich malts, with some caramel and cider on the side. Flavor seemed to diminish significantly as the beer opened up, but it acquired a slight roasty element in the process. Medium bodied, lively.

nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Thick brown-red color. Thin soapy head. Malty aroma, some amber. Malt dominated taste, medium-bodied with a choco-toffee edge. Some dark fruit pungency as well. Sweet, with some brown sugar notes. Enjoyable enough, but lacks some refinement and subtlety.

Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Picked up single 12-oz bottle at Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI. Pours a clear light brownish amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates nearly clean. Aroma of roasted dark malt, a touch of chocolate, grassy hops and some dark berry. Taste is medium bodied, toasted dark malt with additional flavors of caramel, marzipan, chocolate and some fruit. Finish is semi-dry with a toasted dark malt and grassy hop aftertaste that quickly disappears.

daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle from Strykzone. Pours a medium brown color no head. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Flavor follows suit. A bit of caramel and some fruit also. An ok beer.

Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Pours the color of cough syrup. Almost no head and just a small tan ring. Faint aroma is sweet with a bit of caramel and a bit of malt. Feel is also thick and syrupy. Flavor is full of malt with plenty of chocolate and rye. It also offers a bit of spice and some hoppy zing. A malty aftertaste remains.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Pours a pleasent caramel colour, with a small off white head. midpalate it is a little grassy. Light roasted malts with noticeable carmel, almonds and ginger flavor.
