Cobra (1100) - - APR 22, 2006
500 ml. brown bottle. Fresh before 12.21.02. Aged in my cellar for 4 years. Lets see how it holds up. Poured out a dark reddish brown, with a thick tan colored head. Aromas are of chocolate candy-covered coffee beans, yeasty bread, rum soaked raisins. Flavors are of a chocolate malted, with lager yeast notes. Earthy hops are well subdued at this point. Thick, rich mouthfeel. Medium body, finishes slightly dry. It has aged very well, IMHO.

Eructoblaster (4005) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2006
Bottle 500ml. Dark brown body with average carbonation, rusty glints and thick beige frothy head. Wonderful and complex malty/hoppy aroma with plummy, dark cherry, roasty and flowery notes. Rich roasted malt taste that carries woody hints, and ends with a long and robust bitter/roasty finish. I choose it for my 750th rating and did not regret it!

JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2006
500 ml bottle. Dark brown beer with a thin white head. Sweet toasted malt aroma, light nuttiness and more sweet, dark malts. Flavour is sweet and chocolatey, with nuttiness and strong toasty flavour being the most apparent. Light noble hops help dry out the sweetness. Well balanced, warming and refreshing at the same time. Lingering toast and cocoa in the finish with a hint of noble hop flavour. Tasty brew.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - APR 15, 2006
bottled. Quite dark with brown head. Flavour is quite fulbodied and strong. Some notes of caramel and roasted malts. Finish is slightly sweet. A very pleasant and somewhat heavy brew. Good balance.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Poured bright clear deep reddish amber with a huge foamy bubbly rocky tan lasting head. Roasty, nutty malty aroma, sweet and grainy, a bit of grape skin. Very light, pleasing flavour of roast malt, grain, vague plum or grape - smooth grainy finish, cant taste the alcohol - nutty and easy to drink. Mouthfeel is very soft, fairly flat - nice, but not a 4 by my reckoning.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 13, 2006
Reddish brown color with a fluffy white head. Strong malty sweet aroma with slight hints of plum. Sweet but not syrupy. Actually sort of thin with lots of apple juice type notes. Not a bad beer by any stretch but the high average rating surprises me some.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2006
A contradictory beer. On opening it has much in common with a cola; fizzy hiss when uncapped, pours with a thin, fizzy head that dissappears almost instantly. Copper brown cola-like color. Complex malty nose that gets more interesting when tasted. The flavor suprised me; lightly roasted, malty, very enjoyable. Looks one way, tastes another.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - APR 10, 2006
50 cl. bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Dark brown colour with a small head. Sweet and malty aroma with hints of alcohol. Nice smooth flavour of malt, sweetness and hints of roastedness too. Very enjoyable.

jonasgaarde (5) - DENMARK - APR 9, 2006 does not count
Very malty with a slight hint of smoke and lickorice. Intense dark colour and very little head. Very easy to drink, despite the thick, concentrated flavor and high alcohol. A truly wonderful experience!
