Bov (9607) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 28, 2012
from Bier-Bienne - cloudy dark orange-amber beer with a solid creamy foam left; dusty and solidly hoppy; notes of cream, peaches and almonds; a solid malt backbone and very tasty; well-pronounced bitterness and with long aftertaste of exotic fruits and cream

FatPhil (9413) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 25, 2014
330ml bottle (Stones, Helsinki)
Cakey spicy aroma, sweet. Honey later. Flat and orange. Watery palate, slick, flat. Some alcoholic vapours. Mashy grains, some corniness. Sweet,, flat and odd. A few spices can’t save a messy sweet beer.

rosenbergh (7058) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2014
330 ml bottle. BB 06/Gen/15. Stone's, Helsinki, Finland. Hazy reddish amber colour with no head. Fruit cake, sweetness, malt and mild yeast in the aroma. The flavour is hops, sweetness, moderate bitterness, desert and dark fruits. Not that impressive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle, Dec. 24th Beer Advent Calendar-- the last instalment of a truly outstanding gift for Christmas! Medium brown with golden highlights, not much head formation, and whatever there is, it’s gone quickly, giving the appearance of a still beer. Aroma is caramel with distinct apple and cherry notes. Sweet caramel, kirsch-like cherry notes, tart finish. A tad thin, given the ABV. To me, this is more of an English strong ale rather than an American strong ale; the latter for me is defined by the hop structure and content, and there is no hint of any hops here other than a pithy dryness in the finish. A lacklustre exit to an otherwise exceptional craft beer advent gift.

sebletitje (6800) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2013
Draft @ Fiera della Birra di Ferrara, Nov 2013 courtesy of the Bad Attitude crew. Cuivrée, col blanc cassé. Arôme est malté caramel, grillé bouquet mettant en avant les malts avec une fine pointe d’épices hivernales. Palais est malté et fruité rouge venant de cet ajout genévrier, caramel assez présent. Pointe de carapils, pâle? pour un profil de levure assez belge. On ressent ici un peu moins l’ajout festif des épices des bières US avec un petit clin d’œil à un côté winter warmer avec la présence de cannelle. Pas vraiment noté le profil spécifique du gingembre.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 13, 2012
Bottle 330 ml
Aroma sour tartness with spices accented behind. Interesting approach.
Appearance pours as hazed brown with large foamy cap. Some lace is shown.
Flavor and Palate : Cinnamon, sour cherry, mild spice. Mild carbonation. Sweet with mild tone. Gentle alcohol warmth behind. Polite and different than most.
