EdKing (2204) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle shared at Gunnar tasting, originally bought in Utobeer. Colour is clear reddish, with a small white head. Nose is complex. Marmalade, Marmite (yeast extract), caramel, orange citrous, earthy, dirty, alcoholic. Taste is earthy, slight damp cellar, sticky sweet orange, yeast extract saltiness, slight oxidisation but it’s not hurting it, caramel. Sweet and strong but a little too much going on.

teorn88 (4078) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Taster from a 37.5cl bottle at La Cantinetta, Rimini. It pours a clear deep amber colour with almost no head. Aroma is roasted coffee beans, caramel and some booze. Taste is quite sweet with candy sugar, roasted coffee, roasted malts, dark fruit notes. Quite full bodied with soft carbonation. Good

olsvammel (4457) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Chocolate and caramel on the nose. Very sweet taste, lots of caramel and a very strong bitterness. You can really feel the alcohol. Not sure about the whole Blonde IS, it’s close to a barley wine though.

Caap86 (37) - Rognan, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2013
Tastes funny. A little christmasy. Quite good but not nearly a usual beer. Won’t be drinking this again.

daknole (10346) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Reddish brown pour, off white head. Flavors of charred oak, vanilla, raisins...odd but interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (7565) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle pours with a murky light brown body that supports a tan head. The aroma offers up some sweet malts, chili pepper notes and more sugary malt sweetness. The taste has sugary malts, brown sugar, candi sugar and then a thin layer of chili pepper meat rolling into more and more boozy heat. This comes across pretty odd as the notes aren’t melding all that well. And this actually doesn’t have chili peppers added? Fun beer to try though.

BOLTZ7555 (2985) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Mixture of chestnut and garnet in color with a small eggshell head. Brown sugar, candied citrus, cocoa, alcohol, ash, and roasted malt. Meh.

freretoc (1222) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2013
Bu en bouteille de 37.5cl (#3885), une couleur ambrée mais très troublée, aucune mousse mais peut être parce qu’elle était trop vieille. Une pointe caramélisée et très bonbon, bizarre à la première gorgée, mais excellent réchauffée.
