reggiedunlop (3290) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2010
pours deep brown/ruby with a medium lt. tan head. nice lacing and retention. aroma is very malty and sweet, slightly winey with subtle fruit, and a hint of vanilla. flavor is less sweet than the aroma suggests but has some toasty malt and caramel sweetness to go with earthy/woody hops. mouthfeel is lively but it getts slightly watery towards the finish which is dry and lingers nicely with some earthiness. overall a very nice beer that i’d drink again.

Zymurgeist2 (1135) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014
From bottle to pint glass. Also used in the drip pan for moisturizing the turkey!! Aromas of muted caramel and slight floral hops. Slightly hazy deep amber with full tan head that lingers throughout. Taste is rich malt and strong biscuit cookie. Moderate low bitterness. Floral hops become more pronounced as it warms. Dry finish.

not sure how to review this. haven’t had one in a while as it seems they don’t have a great shelf life. 50% spoiled when bought at a store. when it’s good though...it’s freakin awesome. HUGE hop aroma and flavor, followed by a big malt body. Awesome beer...wish it was always fresh."

adster (462) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Bronz színére vaskos, bézs hab telepszik, illata csak úgy árasztja magából a remekebbnél remekebb fenyőgyantás, ebből fakadóan némi karácsonyi hangulatot idéző aromákat, melyek között ugyancsak megjelenik az édes tejkaramella, valamint a dió és dohány fűszerezettsége is. A scotch ale-ekre általában jellemző barley wine-szerű illatok tehát ez esetben is erősen munkálkodnak, az imperial stoutokra jellemző szivárványszínű összetettség egy efféle darabnál is megfigyelhető kissé visszafogottabb és komlóközpontú formában. Bársonyos, apró, de simogató buborékokkal megélénkített kortyok során nyerhetünk bebocsátást a fajsúlyos előadásra, amelyben a kekszes, enyhén whisky-s malátás alapokból egy izgalmasan sokszínű, mégis magabiztosan összeszedett gyantás komlóépítmény emelkdeik ki. A konstrukciót kedvesen színezi ki a karamella és az aszalt gyümölcsök, kevés sárgabarack édessége, hogy aztán végleg átadják a helyüket a hosszan elnyúló komlós utómunkának.
