MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, - MAY 10, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle sampled while watching Man U take the pistols out of Chelski at Stamford Bridge... you know where... Lightish brown with a VERY red hue and a slight film topping. Aroma is dominated by alcohol with notes of brown sauce and some very tangy sweet malt. Something very sweet and sour about it. Flavour is pretty much the same as the nose. Lashings of obvious but reasonably tasty alcohol. It’s drinkable but the alcohol is just too much. One for the beer monsters if you ask me...

Countbeer (6188) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Very big (glass completely filled with) vanilla creme creamy foamy head on top of a murky orange brown ish colored beer. Aromas of prunes, some apricot, some malts, fruity herbs, hint of caramel, some yeast, hint of carbo gass and some fruity cookies. Flavours of fruits, apricot, prunes, some peach, grains, oat, malts, bitters, hint of cardboard, herbs, some dusty nettle, light sweet, lighter bitter and a spiced sprinkle... Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, herbs, nuts, malts, cardboard and some oat/hay ish tones. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Easy drinkable (specially for the ABV), yet a tiny bit strange (unbalanced)...

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 31, 2012
Zavaros belsejű, borostyán sárga színű, kemény, vastag, bézs színű habbal rendelkező sör. Illata kissé fanyar, gyümölcsös, zöld teás, kandiscukros, Ízére is ezek a jellemzők, kiegészítve egy kis naspolyával, élesztővel és egy szép adag komlóval. Elég testes, apró buborékokkal teli és a magasabb alkoholtartalmat is kiérezni belőle. Utóíze keserédes, és picit fanyar. Nem rossz.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Bottled@Belgobaren, Stockholm (old backlog from about 2010). Hazy ambery red colour with some particles in it, mediumsized white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, mild berries, earth, yeast and some slight notes of alcohol as well. Flavour is ripe fruits, alcohol, some toffee, yeast and mild herbal notes. Was a bit lively when opening, so be careful.
