Bov (9325) - Bienne, - 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

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle at BrewDog, Edinburgh on 17 May. They had a few in stock, but the fridge was emptied of them by the end of my session. Poured amber and was completely flat, with pretty much no head. Aroma of butterscotch, booze and ripe berries. Sharp hop flavour with notes of toffee and spice. Finish was bitter grass, caramel and lavender. Different...

Svesse (6044) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with dried fruit, caramel, oak wood, red fruit, honey, hints of tar and smoked chilli. Malty, fruity taste with notes of dried fruit, caramel, hints of smoke, honey, red berries, orange marmalade, chocolate, toffee and a slightly bitter-sweet finish with a hint of alcohol shining through. Full body, with viscous mouthfeel. Fairly sweet. Quite interesting and a bit hard to define style-wise. Nice one.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a cloudy deep amber brown with no head whatsoever. Aroma has strong sweet grains and a syrupy note with toffee and a good amount of booze. Flavor has strong toffee and sweet grains with a syrupyness and a bit of booze. An odd beer for sure.

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 itís not hurting it, caramel. Sweet and strong but a little too much going on.

Frovigalning (2928) - ÷rebro, 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, itís close to a barley wine though.
