FatPhil (12797) - Tallinn, - JUN 21, 2013
330ml bottle - thanks Ares!
Sweet caramelly aroma. ESL! Rich gold, tight head. Lovely toffee taste. Nice rich malty body. ESL again. Some marmity yeast in the finish. A touch papery, but the caramel smothers that. Maybe I’m getting drunk, but I do like the ESL aspects. Finish maybe a bit chemical and drying.

TorbenJensen (1435) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2016
Not so much foam and also an equally anonymous aroma which is limited to a little caramel and a little nondescript malt character with equally bland aroma hop towards the end. The taste is caramel and a synthetic sweetness actually not taste as good. Palate have a little positive taste of bread and dried fruit, but the aforementioned artificial sweetener destroys it in total. The bitterness of hops is limited and the aftertaste is still leaving too much sweetness. It’s not a beer I possibly would recommend, but it has some positives - just not to my taste.

thanatosti (1417) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ the apartment in Corralejo, Fuerteventura, bought @ a local supermarket. Clear amber with a thin white head. Malty, slightly spicy aroma. Sweet taste and a boozy finish.

midovark (258) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - MAR 29, 2016
0.33 l can. Nice deep golden-amber color. Sweetish-metallic aroma. The taste is waays better than one would think after sniffing. Decent bitter taste with quite long finishing. Not bad.

DraftDodger (888) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2016
Los Cristianos, Tenerife 16/3 2016. 33 cl bottle from Mercadona. Something resembling a lion standing on it's hindlegs on the label - might be part octopussy. Pours orangeish amber with small white head. Settles as thin almost transparent layer of foam. Moderate lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and buttery. Caramel and fresh timber. Medium carbonation and oily palate. Flavor is sweet with caramel and toffee and quite distinct taste. Metallic alcohol lurking in the background. Only subdued bitterness in the aftertaste. A lot of malt to digest - but certainly better than most industrial Spanish beers.

DAA; Bottle 33cl. Bottle received as a gift. Thank You! Pours moderate, hazy cobber, frothy with a somewhat lasting and lacing, tan head. Aroma is moderate, malt, caramel, light bread, grass and spice. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter with a somewhat lasting grain, caramel, light warming finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

Really nice but unusual beer. Great aroma and appearance and a mild fruity taste.

Torrefacto (1321) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 18, 2015
Ámbar limpio y espuma canela ligera. Aromas de diacetilo y ésteres afrutados, fruta naranja. Cuerpo medio-alto, maltoso a incio, de nuevo ésteres y diacetilo con amargor final alcohólico.
