Scopey (10027) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky dark amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, earthy, musty, cereal, cracker, brown bread, mild ketchup and squash. The taste is toasty, earthy, cereal, cracker, sort of watery, toasty grass, light spice and sugary with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavour is a but wishy washy and muted. Disappointing.

danielyabu (1364) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 2, 2015
huge frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick light brown body. aroma: moderate nutty malty, caramel, milk chocolate and alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic and heavy alcoholic finish. Aroma sorvete de chocolate. Dulçor bem maltado e achocolatado, lembrando também sorvete daquele, mas sem puxar para o lado da stout nem Porter. Sente-se o álcool, mas de forma mascarada, sem prejudicar nuances. Lembra um conhaque. Bem elegante. Leve amargor surge no final, balanceando o que por si só seria um dulçor saboroso, mas enjoativo a longo prazo. baixa drinkability – o leve amargor acaba não conseguindo combater o forte dulçor achocolatado e caramelado; isto, aliado ao forte teor alcoólico, a torna uma cerveja de degustação prolongada. Retrogosto de sabão surge como defeito grave. Lembra o sabor de outra cerveja bem famosa cujo nome não me recordo agora.110 s

the aroma is caramel and herbal with hints of hops and spices... the taste is caramel and fruity with notes of toffee, citrus, spicy herbs and, a little bit, red wine... bright hoppy bitterness... sweet, bitter, spicy and dry aftertaste...

magicmn (131) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 3, 2015
Malty aroma of reisin and dried fruit with note of caramel. Medium to high wellrounded body. Taste is both intensive malty raisin, caramel and marmalade and Europe hop. Good balance.
