Brown with a red hue, this beer smell like a damp cellar. It also has a distictive wet hay aroma. Pours with a huge head and the bottle is slow gushing right now. Taste is spicy and mouthfeel is realy dry. Carbonation is high and totally appropriate to me. An OK beer overall, nothing too fancy though.

SlackerMads (2907) - DENMARK - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle. Hazy hazelnut/amber with a large off white/beige head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Mild brown sugar, honey, minerals and flowers in the nose. Flavour has mild dark dried fruits, brown sugar, honey, red grapes, berries, acidity. Filling mouthfeel with lively carbonation, some sweetness, light/medium acidic, some astringency. I don’t enjoy the acidity and astringency.

Maakun (4062) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Almost clear reddish brown with fizzy beige head that leaves a little ring of medium sized bubbles. Cranberries, lots of wood and dead leaves, figs, dry earthy notes, some funk and hay, spicy yeast, raisins, sour red berries, overripe cherries. Very light sweetness and sourness and under medium bitter. Medium bodied with a bit fizzy carbonation and very dry feel. Interesting stuff.

NordicV (1955) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2016
Dimmig bärnstensfärgad mot orange öl med ett vitt skum. Doft av bröd, lätt kryddig jäst och viss fruktighet. I smaken tillkommer viss alkoholsötma.

4 oz pour at The Sovereign. Poured a mostly clear ruby-amber color with an off-white head. Light fruity notes. Caramel, light spices pretty tasty. Interesting.

poech73 (370) - Braine, BELGIUM - FEB 27, 2016
From Carref** Soignies >> Ambrée fort malté épicé sur lie. Nez citronné avec du candi et beaucoup de levure. En bouche, le candi arrive à l’avant accompagné du bouquet épicé sur de notes de réglisse, de coriandre et un pointe d’anis. Ensuite, le maltage caramélisé livre des arômes vagues de cacao avec un houblonnage moyennement sec à la fin aigrelette agréable, minéral sans astringence, le tout super bien équilibré mais peu complexe. La levure apporte au surplus beaucoup de saveurs épicées notamment une sensation argileuse et poivrée avec des fruits confits. Le classique du top.

SvanteL (306) - SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2016
Orangegul med medelstort skum. Fruktig, lite syrlig doft med inslag av örter och aningen stallighet. Smaken är frisk och fruktig med lite örtighet och jäst och en fin syrlighet . En annorlunda vinteröl, välbalanserad mellan syra och sötma.
