BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2013
[375ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] Every inch the session golden ale on the pour – blondish yellow, with a thin, loose head. Surprising aroma - to be honest, it smelled very similar to opening a box of Sugar Puffs, only slightly vegetal at the same time. However, over the next few sips, the oatmeal really came through and it improved, albeit still whilst tasting breakfasty [18022013]

Really interesting experiment - they’ve managed to get the chocolate and liquorice aroma in, but the coffee is not quite there for me. Some sherry notes. Golden yellow in the glass, no lasting head to speak of. Sherry again in the taste, and marmalade. Neither a blonde nor a stout, but worth trying.

Arve_Christian (4301) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2013
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika ( sept 2012?) dark golden color, some foam. Intense aromas of caramel , vanilla and oak. Also malt, dried fruits, raisins . Medium/ full body & high complexity. Sweet , also good bitterness- ok balanced. Enjoyable

onkelgobber (159) - Edinburgh, - FEB 18, 2013
Mouldy apple spirits nose. Pours light amber with little head. Very sweet brown sugar like taste with maybe toffee apples and a clear spike of spirits. Fairly balanced but not super special.

Clear deep gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, quite light. Rich marmalade hops that are nicely balanced with coffee and a touch of vanilla. Finishes smooth with minor aniseed alcohol. Marmalade hop aftertaste. Doesn’t work at all as a Stout - nice try. Does work well in it’s own right - came over as an Imperial Coffee Golden to me! Hides the alcohol quite well and very drinkable.

Bov (11155) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 1, 2013
from Erzbierschof - quite clear amber beer with no head retention; a bit chewy nose with robust notes of nuts; slightly perfumy and with hints of wood and cognac; full-bodied and pretty sticky palate; a strong malt sweetness; some decent bitterness and a dry cognac-like finish, fruity and caramelish

joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
12 oz. corked and caged bottle from Papsoe. It pours a muddy amber brown color with a small disappearing head. The aroma is all over the place with cocoa, oxidized sherry and almonds, raisins, booze and caramel. The flavor is the same. Thick body with below average carbonation. A malt bomb with lots of residual sugars, fruit, candy caramel, nuts, cocoa and a surprisingly strong herbal bitter finish. Sweet, boozy and a bit messy/oxidized but actually pretty tasty as well.

zacgillbanks (3758) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. An amber-brown coloured beer with a slight earthy woody nose followed by sweet red fruit, currants and a spicy warming finish.
