RichardGretton (4372) - Leicestershire, - AUG 17, 2013
Bottle. Brownish beer with a very strong and frothy off white to light brown head. The aroma is very well hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with heaps, and heaps of dense bitterness. Overall a nice very strongly hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KoNrRiI (679) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2015
0.33 bottle. Hazy. brown color and a medium, thick, creamy, off-white head leaving a minimal lacing. Aroma of yeasts, dark fruits, fermented apples, and other fruits. Taste is also dominated by esters, although it does not lack a fair share of malts, wood, and smoke. Above medium body, oily texture, and soft carbonation. Finish follows the taste with its fermented fruits, wood, and hints of smoke. Overall quite a good beer; it could use more balance but otherwise decent. Kudos for hiding the alcohol content.

Holmen1 (3198) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2015
Fra flaske (bb. 01/14) på RBHD-treff hos OG mars-15: gusher! Uklar gylden med tett, offwhite skum. Igjen en god aroma av modne bær, men smaken minner mer om overmodne bær. Forsiktig men lang bitterhet, lett å helle over ganen. Lurer på hvordan en ferskere utgave smaker.

Sigmund (5552) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 10.1%. BB date 01/14. Gusher bottle. Hazy brown colour, large off-white head. Moderate but nice fruity aroma, hints of ripe berries, also some vinous and oaky notes. Nice flavour too, not too sweet, malty and oaky notes, decent hops in the finish.

gunnar (6070) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Big gusher. Pours almost clear dark amber with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma is light sweet, fresh berries with a note of cellar. Taste is light sweet, herbal with liquorice notes, light sticky mouthfeel, nice enough, got some good qualities.

ramboraffe (892) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 2, 2015

MrHangover (3051) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slight hazy orange beer with a nice firm off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, slight boozy, sweet sugars. Flavor is very sweet, loads of boozy notes, nutty and fairly dull to be honest. The sweetness and boozy characters overwhelm this beer too much to be called balanced in any way. Just a boozy malt bomb.

Idiosynkrasie (4539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy, orangey dark golden to amber colour with late awakening, thick, creamy, fairly lating, moderately lacing, grey-ish, off-white head. Slightly smoky aroma, shoe polish, peat, TCP, toffee background, hints of dried fruit, sticking-plaster. Taste is sweet, smoky, hints of peat, TCP, a minimally fruity touch, some dried fruit, hints of alcohol in the finish; oily texture. Presumptuous and superfluous.
