Samuel214 (12) - SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2015
Söt doft av torkad frukt och calvados. Kraftig, sött smak med bara en aning beska - humlen är borta sedan länge. Otippad för att vara en IPA, men rakt igenom sjukt trevlig öl!

colui72 (324) - HONG KONG - AUG 9, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2015 Can?t find it too much IPA here, probably more of a barley wine. Murky orange with little beige head, aroma of apricot and fruit tart, quite malty and bready. Taste follows the nose, can feel the yeast and the booze, sweet and not much of hops. Very rich and "confused" flavour.

GlasgowTAD (658) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Pours a murky brown with very little head. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, raspberry tart. Taste is cherry tart, caramel, candi, raspberry and slight peaches.

Linnet (1324) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2015
Lots of ripe apples, ciderlike, sweet malts, acidic, hoppy, citric, resinous, but more like a BW than an IIPA. Sweet and hoppy flavour, lots of barrel aging.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome. BBE 09/2014.
Pours dark mahogany color with a medium sized head. Sweet plums and sugar on the nose, caramel malts and wood. Sweet sugary and malty flavor, some syrup too with caramel and sweet ripe fruits. Even though quite sweet, I like this better than My Antonia.

Pyrmir (4280) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
Sample from bottle at Uppsala Beer. Hazy dark golden with white head. Aroma boozy, vinous barrel, some sweet malt, woody resin, light caramel and grapefruit. Taste is complex and intense, vinous, barrel, alcohol, caramel, grapefruit with a tingly bitterness in the finish. Really nice!

9/I/15 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: VIII/2015 (2015-27) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark orange beer, big creamy off-white head, little stable, adhesive. Aroma: apples indeed! Calvados, apple sauce, fruity, little oxidized, some sherry notes. MF: ok but lively carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, apple juice, calvados, yet not too boozy at all, apple sauce, little spicy. Aftertaste: calvados, apple juice, some tannins, little bitter.
