Bottle from secret santa. Some peanut brittle in the aroma with light caramel. Taste is awfully thin and doesn’t have too much flavor -- maybe a touch of anise and some nuts -- but otherwise is a very easy drinker. Nothing too exciting here, though I wouldn’t mind throwing a few of these back.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2005
12 oz bottle. Rich amber with a big head that settled pretty quick. Bready malts mix with dried fruits. The alcohol gives ya quite a buzz pretty quick here. Its ok.

Sweet floral aroma, auburn, slim head. Coffee, chicory flavour, also roated malts. Fine bitterness, very smooth, complex. Really good ale.

(341 ml bottle: Obtained 03-Sep-05 in trade with radiomgb, thanks Jeff!) Mmm, the toasty, malty nose is very alluring, and I cant wait to dive right in and take my first sip. But first, Ill display some will power and admire the clear, amber-brown color of this beer. The small, beige head settles to a wide ring and patchy film atop the beer. The aromatic, malty nose is calling me more forcefully now, and I cant deny myself any longer. Rich, dark malts are chocolaty, toasty, gently roasty, hinting of smoke. Sweetness is only mild, and it seems moderately buttery. Modest hop bitterness adds a balancing force, but the malts definitely have dominion in this beer. Body is medium-full with a slight bite on the palate. Carbonation is fairly strong when first poured, but settles down somewhat over time. Lacing is spotty with a few small patches. Overall, a wonderful beer that has been a nice celebratory treat for passing a real estate final exam this evening.

This ale is a bit on the watery side. It's malty, but it comes across thin.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2004
Poured a deep brown colour; fizzy decent sized head. Not much aroma to speak of, what was there was rather malty/nutty. Slightly bitter, deep sweet malty taste, short finish that could have used a little more bite (hops). Overall, I was surprised at how good this was. It was darker than I expected, the alcohol was there but balanced nicely. Another good beer from Wellington and probably their best from the bottle.

On cask at Volo. Appearance: purple red with no head. Aroma: port, malt, spice, alcohol. Flavour: spicy malt followed by a nice vine flavour with grass and bitterness to follow. Nice long bitter finish.

(bottle) clear dark amber with small brown head; faint aroma of stewed fruit, bit metallic at the beginning; balanced satisfying flavour, quite good
