pivo (2689) - GERMANY - JAN 4, 2003
Nose of bacon sauteed in a cast-iron pan wrapped around a slightly bruised date with a hint of fennel. But seriously, folks - the nose was big and reminded my of potato sticks. Light gold color and a low head. Toaste grain body and a long profile. Full taste, but I wasn't convinced of the overall blend of flavors. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Sour caramal and also bacon nose. Amber color with a little head. Peppery, apples, oranges and grapes are found in the flavor. Nice. jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2002
Very intens fruity (apple, raisin) aroma. Amber/light brown color, off-white very nice head, good lace. Sweet, moderate full, well hopped, fruity (apple, orange, plum). Bitter finish, but is it hop or the alcohol? Little alcohol burn. Kåstå (1272) - Mol, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2002
Clear light amber coloured beer. Weak aroma. Bitter-sweet, spicy taste...... rauchbier (3956) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2002
Bottle conditioned? Hazy chestnut red, good thick head and moderate condition. Low aromas of hop at the start become overwhelmed by malt and alcohol. Licorice and malt flavours become sweet and mouthcoating in the finish with a slight metallic edge and a big blast of alcohol.

A bit of a tart malaise where there shouldn’t be…Yeasty, spicy, great body…Strange tomato acidity… leaparsons (10906) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2002
A murky looking brown beer. Flavours are of smokey burnt caramel with vapours on the finish. Hints of autumn fruits too. A warming nighcap. Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - MAY 4, 2002
This barley-winish belgian exhibits a rusty orange/brown body beneath a bone head. Hops and cloves are noticeable alongside the more traditional jammy pear, prune, and plum flavors supported by domineering malt. Hints of maple syrup, earth, pine, and toffee help make this a unique belgian blond.
