strap (373) - honolulu, Alabama, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Tasty. Sweet caramel flavor, malty and sort of bready. Liked this one a lot. Plus, it's organic so it's good for me and the environment ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is candy/sugar, citrus/tropical fruit and fruit. The flavor is malts, candy/sugar, fruit and a long and tart/sour finish.

Nice, but different from what I’m used to in this style. More heavy malted than expected, and yet more bitter than expected as well. Nevertheless, good.

chocolate, coffee, vanilla, black, cloudy, minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, oily feel, flat, astringent. Not very appealing to look at, akin to the blackest dirty water you’ve ever seen. Sweet smelling, like a chocolate coffee concoction you might find at Starbucks. Taste isn’t too special, would probably be better with a slightly lower a.b.v.

mile (2744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee and some dark fruits, light hoppyness. Medium malty and sweetish flavor with caramel - light toffee and some dark fruits - berry fruitiness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel - light toffee and some dark fruits - berry fruitiness, faint hoppyness, light alcohol. Caramel/toffee sweetish strong ale - too sweet and bit one-dimensional for me. Sweet but 6,2% makes finish bit drier.

meerbier (1449) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle@Home, 6.2%. Fruity sour and toffee aroma. Brown, beige head, good lace. Fruity, sweet, raisin, bitter, hint of coffee, light metallic. Sticky mouth feel. Bit unbalanced.

Bottle from trade with McTapps, many thanks. Amber colored beer with small off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel, some sourness. Medium sweet taste with burned sugar, tart fruitiness, light touch of citrus hops. Drinkable.

Bamsen78 (2413) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle from McTapps - thank you! Pours dark amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel and malt with rich fruity notes. Sweetish, malty and fruity flavour with regular notes of hops. Slightly roasty aftertaste. Nice.

Bit sourish with some fruits in the aroma. Easy going with a dull end. Also some spices in the aroma.
