KansaiBeerLvrs (1661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2013
6% bottle from Yamaichi. A nutty brown colored pour with thin fizzy beige head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel, plums & toffee. Reminds me of a Marzen or Wee heavy in the nose. Taste is nutty, caramel, toffee but a bit rough, kind of some oxidized metallic notes-it may have lost something during transport.

craig220 (313) - Crofton, Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Poured a mahogany color with a two-finger beige head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, hay, and a very faint vanilla. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly bitter, and a lingering salty sweet on the tongue. Overall, it’s easy to drink, not offensive, and nothing special.

subsonic (82) - Pataskala, Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
"Pours a somewhat cloudy dark amber with a white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity. taste is of caramel malts and light hops. Somewhat spicy ending and noticeably dry.

StuartC (28) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Light intensity of aromas but with obvious notes of yeast-extract - bovril/marmite, and subtle hints of sweetness - possibly dried-figs or banana-bread. The sweetness is more obvious on the palate though this dries almost instantly from chocolate-toffees to cinnamon and walnuts, and offers a very short finish with only a delicate lingering of fresh wholegrain toast. Flavourful, but is either under-spiced or is a new, elegant take on the seasonal winter ale.

355ml bottle from Good Spirits Company, Glasgow (6.1% abv on the label) - clear amber brown, thin lively cream head, sweet malty aroma, no lacing, sweet malty flavour, fairly high carbonation,
