RichardGretton (4251) - 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

Bottle shared by Anton, thanks! Had this from the bottle. Aroma is sweet and caramel/fudgey. Taste is sweet with caramel, slightly tart, somewhat barley wine like. Medium body, high carbonation, round mouth feel. Herbal/Noble hop after taste.

tomekk1978 (479) - POLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Barwa: intensywnie miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana beżowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i utrzymująca się. Aromat: słodowy i słodki z akcentami karmelu owoców (wiśnie?), jakby wanilia oraz alkohol, ale nie tak ostry, jak się spodziewałem. Smak: słodowy, bardzo pełny i słodki. Wyraźnie alkoholowy, z nutą karmelu i niewielką goryczką. Niestety poz tym dość pusty.

harrisoni (13793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Hazy dark russet brown with lasting beige head. Boozy aroma. Some fruity malt. Better in mouth, touch of smoke. Aroma of smokey spirit on the aroma with some malt. Surprisingly smooth in the mouth. i quite like this to be honest. Still the aroma isn’t too good. Not sure what to make of it.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle. Murky brown with a massive head that took ages to dissipate. Malty sweet and powerful with a sweet aftertaste. A special but not great beer.
