FatPhil (9405) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 16, 2013
355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge, for Snow@ChrisO)
Mega mushroom aroma. Dirty taste. Sticky. Really not a good drinker at all. Sorry guys, don’t hold this against me.

daknole (9223) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2009
Pours an amber/red color. Aroma is malty, some spices, caramel malt and some good fruitiness. Flavor has a touch of hops that melds well with the caramel, spices and bit of dark fruit. Good beer. Goes well with enchilada pie!

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. The nose is malty, beefy and herbal. The flavor is beefy and kinda funky with earthy, peppery notes. Moderately sweet. Medium-bodied and oily with tingly carbonation. Bland, lightly bitter finish. Well, that was a bit of a disappointment.

Theydon_Bois (9084) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenhamd Green - Jan ’12. Poured to a mahogany brown colour, red tinges when held to the light and a small white/beige head. A malty aroma greets the nose along with caramel and light hopping. In the taste, malts, a little dried fruit, caramel/toffee and a little warming alcohol especially in the finish. Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and fairly drinkable and smooth.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2011
bottled. A dark brown coloured beer with a little off-white head. A fruity malty beer with some herbal notes. There’s a bit of a fusty note to this late on. It’s pleasant enough and there’s a hint of spice, but it’s all a bit ordinary.

Sammy (8719) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2008
2007 edition thanks to crushinator. Te aroma is consistent with the Scottish style, malty and peaty. It drinks very smooth, even creamy above average mouthfeel. There is lots of lace. It is very drinkable for the style, which is a swallow ata time.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Tap at Waterfront Ale House. Pale amber colour, thin white head. The aroma is lightly chocolatey with some sweet spicy aroma as well. Light noble herbal hop flavour behind the sweet spices. Light toastiness as well. A bit sweet for my tastes, but decent enough.
