Dark brown/ruby colour. Aroma: Sweet malty, barley wine-like, a little buttery and cheesy with smallish chocolate notes. Flavour: Woody, just like I know Scottish Ales with a little milk chocolate, and quite tasty. Clean mouthfeel. Ungstrup (37217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2004
The aroma is slight, but sweet with notes of alcohol. The color is an opaque red with a small fast disappearing head. The flavor is weird: sour with powerful notes of alcohol and somewhat lesser notes of coffee. The mouthfeel is sticky. The alcohol is too pronounced.

Dark redbrown colour.
Fruity aroma with tones of apricots, alcohol and syrup.
Buttery flavour with tones of fruit, alcohol, nuts and malt. Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Dark brown to red color,small head that faded quickly but left a small lace behind.The aroma was malty and caramel with maybe a slight Smoky side to it.The taste wasn’t that bad with a nicemalty roasty side some hints of fruit and a mild smoked side coming through as the brew warmed up.More then worth trying again barenada (211) - Georgetown, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Had this on tap at a bar with the same name in Las Vegas. By the end of the week I knew I’d found my new favorite non-smoked beer.

This stuff looked and tasted like a porter. I thought it was pretty damn good. I would definitely drink this again given the chance. Pyramid makes good beers. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUN 6, 2004
On tap. Deep ruby. Very malty, woody, and some whiskey, light smoke. Smooth, slightl;y large body. I enjoyed it a bunch. sloth (2895) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Small light tan head, fades slowly, no lace to speak of. Clear brown with a black hue. Lightly sweet, grainy malt nose. Medium body. Grainy malt flavor, light bitterness, hint of oxydation, chocolate and some roastiness. Slick, creamy finish is medium sweeet. A well rounded brew. brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - MAY 28, 2004
I found this one to be quite pleasant. Nice roasted carmel malt, with mild chewyness. Lighty smokey with fruity notes. A little thin, with a dry finish. Overall, for a easy to find beer. You could do much, much worse. Dogbrick (12912) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Dark ruby brown color with a medium light tan head. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma is smoky malt and caramel. Medium-bodied with a big malt profile, and very little else in the flavor aside from a hint of caramel. The finish is sweet and lasting. Kind of a one-trick pony with the malt but it is smooth and drinkable.
