Underdogs88 (324) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 14, 2015
A moderate amount of malt sweetness on the aroma with light notes of fruitless. A crystal clear dark Amber appearance with an offwhite head with below average head retention. Flavor is malt forward with notes of biscuit, toast and dark caramel. Fruity esters are moderately high. Finish is dry. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's labeled as a wee heavy and a 90 schilling, but it's definitely not a wee heavy. It's a 90 schilling. It also has a little too much toast flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Toffee malty aroma. No hops on the nose. Appearance is a deep amber with a long lasting white head. Crystal clear. Flavor is heavy on kettle caramelized toffee notes. No hop flavor or esters. Mouthfeel is smooth and full with medium a carbonation. Overall, a classic wee heavy, but the malt flavor is one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mice (171) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Täysin kirkas, läpinäkyvä olut vaahtoaa melko vähäisesti. Tuoksussa makeaa maltaisuutta, jännää rusinamaista otetta varsin runsaasti ja hedelmää. Maku hedelmäinen, runsaan makean maltainen, marjainen ja hieman pähkinäinen. Makeus menee vähän överiksi.

Leini (1775) - SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark brown body, pretty much crownless. Fruit, toffee, hint of smoke and vineous notes in the aroma. Flavor follows the same path, but with a bit more fruityness and some bitterness.

Caramel and malt notes. Deep brown with a fast fading head. More caramel and perhaps a touch of clove with a sweet presence. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.
