FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 23, 2005
12oz. bottle. Dark translucent red brown, thin film of light tan head. Caramel and earthen malt in the aroma. Slightly sweet and caramel maltiness in the flavor, tinges of muted herbal hops. Finish has slight residual sweetness and a chalky presence. Mouthfeel is light, slightly dry.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Amber coloured with a beige head. Caramel in both aroma and flavour and some slightly sweet, perfumy notes. Lovely, nutty ale. 020101

12oz bottle via trade with beerandblues2 - Thanks Brad! - Pours brown with a short offwhite head. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, and some nuts. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, toffee, nuts, roasted and toasty notes too. Palate is medium bodied and fairly smooth to drink. Not many hops to be found in this though. Easy drinker but nothing great here. Average.

Habanero (4668) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Roasted and hoppy aroma. Medium beige short lasting head. Dark ruby colour. Flavour of of roasted malts and some fruitiness. Slightly bitter medium lasting finish.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bottled. Allright have to say I got hit with a mild skunky aroma right when I opened this. After poured, however, it quickly faded. Is this bottle tainted... I am not sure. After the initial blast mentioned before the aroma was dominated by a nutty maltiness and the taste followed. There was a small presents of hops in the aftertaste. This beer did not have a lot to offer in my book and I am not at all impressed. May have to rerate due to the bottle possibly being bad.

swiseman (502) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 16, 2005
strong aroma that hits right away; decent head and lacings. The taste is nothing particularly special, but it is very well-balanced and hops are used well without being overpowering. probably the best Wychwood offering.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 16, 2005
brown/amber color with a tan head. Aroma is faint but earthy with a slight bitterness. Flavor has some roasted nuttiness with a nice medium malt body and finishes up with a clean hop bitterness. Nothing overpowering but well balanced. Easy to drink beer and the bottle looks nice too.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 12, 2005
dark redish brown, light brown head. malty with a little nut in the flavor. slightly bitter, not too hoppy. very nice to find ales that are more bitter than hoppy in the states.

thegreenrooster (4396) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 11, 2005
Pour is a very dark red with a white head. Aroma is hard to detect but I mostly got some dark fruit in there. Flavor is dark caramel and dark fruits with a nice peaty and earthy aftertaste. I have seen this brew for a long time w/o picking it up and now im wondering what took me so long. A very nice bitter brew.

rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2005
Dark-ambr color with a frothy tan-colored head, caramelized malt, nutty, flower hops aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a grainy, earthy, malty character, toasted malt, toffee note, leading towards a juicy hoppy finish.
