fletchfighters (1056) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2013
To me really has changed from an imperial red ale to an English style barleywine. Still had a bit of pine like hop taste but the deeper I got into it it had a lot of caramel, sherry, fair amount of booze, little to no carbonation. Good looking dark amber color and had developed quite well. Slick and sticky in the mouth. A touch on the sweet side but pretty good overall

bierkoning (10110) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle, thanks Craig! Deep dark brown color, no head. Malt, maple suyrup, red berries and dried citrusfruit in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, well hopped but partly faded. Hazelnuts, vanilla and red berries. No carbon whatsoever. Caramel. Hidden alcohol.

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 5, 2012
Köszönöm Armando és Balázs! Olyan színe van, mint egy régóta a pohárban pihenő kólának. Illata melaszos, alkoholos, szilvalekváros és enyhén lábszagú. Íze mazsolás, édes, kormos, karamellás, medvecukros és alkoholba áztatott mazsolás. Sűrű, testes ital. Utóíze füstös, keserű és alkoholos. Nagyon kiegyensúlyozatlan sör, amiben igen meghatározó a magas alkoholtartalom.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2012
0,375 l bottle. Poured murky amber with a small white creamy head. Aromas of a candy sugar, cocoa, alcohol, raisins and herbs. Oily charactew, green leaves, strong alcohol, plum. Sweet because alcohol.

OrionBelt (32) - ITALY - OCT 27, 2012
Dark amber - brown color. mouthfell is medium body, rich texture of malt, caramel, alcohol, citrus. Hopping emerges from the malt with arrogance! The finish is bitter and alcohol, especially beer. the only flaw of this beer is the perception that alcohol sip by sip gets more and more pronounced.

TEJA (1278) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2012
Nice light brown head. Clowdy darkred color. Warming alcohol, grassy hop aroma with chrystal malts. Sweet liqurish and light sweet caramell taste and lots of fruit and big bitternes that is clean and big body.
