(375ml bottle #822/3200 bottled 1-29-10 thanks to James of BrewDog!) clear orange pour with light bubbles. Nose of apples, raisin. Taste of raisin, toastiness, apple. Disappointing given the ingredients listed. Has a nicely spicy finish. Had trouble describing the elements of this as well.

tiong (5842) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
375ml bottle

Bottled on 29.01.2010, bottle #2573/3200 - Pours dark brown with a tiny white head. Aroma of ripe fruits, malts, yeast, vanilla and spices. Taste is quite malty and smooth with notes of ripe fruits and a lot of vanilla. Finish is quite mild, slick and slightly malty with some alcohol coming through. A bit unbalanced, quite heavy on the vanilla notes. Surprisingly light bodied.

Tap @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is mild fruity with malt and burnt sugar. Flavor is sweet, dry fruit, caramel and warming alcohol. A mild and delicate bitterness is detected in the finish. Well balanced and interesting.

teorn88 (5581) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Taster from 37.5cl bottle. It pours a deep amber colour with no head. Maybe a small ring of beige bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and bold with big notes of brandy and vanilla. Caramel and tobacco notes. Taste is sweet with some minor drying feeling from the yeast in the finish. Notes of caramel, vanilla, alcohol, brandy. Mouthfell is quite creamy with soft carbonation. Good overall.

vyvvy (5306) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Pours murky copper / brown with a sudsy beige head. The aroma has bready maltiness, nectarines, apples, syrupy sweetness, funk and alcohol - doesn’t strike me as a quad. Medium / thick body with lots of frothy semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma traits with lots of fruitiness and warming alcohol. Added to those aspects are peach, cotton candy and spices. The finish doesn’t change too much from the original flavor, but as the beer warms there are hints of vanilla, but it’s not very apparent. This is okay, but I expected more.

thebeertourist (5169) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle no 581 from Utobeer. Clear copper, big and lacing offwhite head. Complex fruity aroma, slightly vinous. Fruit, some raisins, and caramel flavours. The vanilla beans only give a small impact. Good, but probably overrated.
