OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Golden brown with a small-sized beige head. Nice dark caramel nose. Hint of nuts, tinned fruits and leafy hops. Chalky texture. Light to medium full. Soft caramelly malt flavor, with toasted and nutty tones. A mild tart berry-like fruitiness underneath. Mildly hopped. Sourish, light astringent malt finish. A bit strange, but drinks very good. [Sampled at the brewery, 01.09.13]

allmyvinyl (4790) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 27, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear copper, thin white head. Metallic aromas, roasted malt. Taste has a roasted and chocolaty bitterness, and a light toffee sweetness. Quite light bodied, a little thin. Finishes abruptly. Not bad.

ianwelby (580) - SCOTLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Dark red beer with a fruity, malty aroma. Flavour is malt and a bitter caramel flavour with a light, fruity edge. Finish is almost smokey with the caramel. Could do with a bit more body but it’s pleasant enough.

doradobotella (139) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 11, 2013
Apariencia: Color marrón ambarino con una capa de espuma fina pero duradera. Aroma: Maltoso con toques a chocolate. Sabor: Suave y agradable, recuerda a chocolate con leche y frutos secos, el final es ligeramente amargo.

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
Deep chesnut brown. Aroma: roasted malts, milk chocolate, butterscotch, toast. Taste: more roasted malts, butterscotch, raisins. Nice beer - shame about the disappointingly thin body and slightly odd sharp/sour finish.

Graham77 (282) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2013
Pours a reddish brown colour. Very thin and watery on the palate. Reasonable ale but i am in no hurry to try again.
