Douberd (2339) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, into a snifter, ABV 7.5%, bottled on 22/7/11 Deep red to light amber colour on the body, with a tall off white and froathy head. Very good retention nevertheless, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Body is clear with good activity in it. Aroma is quite malty, with caramel, light roasted malts, nicely hopped with noble hops. Very nice taste, sweet, with caramel and toffee, light hoppy, with the alcohol being quite obvious and enhancing the flavours. Medium thick body, nice carbonation with a bite on the tongue. Mildly dry palate. Overall a very nice take on the style, really enjoyed it.

ShivanDragon (1722) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
7.5%, mooi rood met bruine toets, schuimig kaki kraag, mooi helder
aroma’s van aardse caramouten, ambermout, maar met name de aardse tonen overheersen, mooie fruitige hoppigheid, donker fruit dit keer, wat van rozijnen.
smaken zijn matig zoet, iets van kandy/bruine suiker zoetigheid, bittertje valt wel wat mee, aan de zwakke/matig kant, lijkt zelfs wat van gebrande/geroosterd mout en van de bitterhoppen te komen. caramel, donkere fruiten zoals rozijnen. afdronk lang bitter
matige body, lage co2, aardig maar géén toppertje.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Muddy bronze beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly spiced with a good degree of bitterness. The flavour is more like a Belgian beer than an English beer with heavy bitterness, some spice and a good degree of maltiness. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dfearnley (1032) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle to brandy glass Yeast, bread, oak, and alcohol Sludgy brown, huge bubbly off white head (probably due to an agitated bottle) which reduces quickly to 2mm. Taste is yeast, caramel, and some light bitter citrus, maybe grapefruit.

Ferris (4494) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle - Boozey caramel, brown sugar and bread. Cloudy copper with a rich big beige head. Tons of caramel and candied sugars, bit of bread and some bitterness. Very nice, especially if you like caramel.

Temptation (226) - - NOV 28, 2013
Copper color, opaque, slightly hazy. Great off-white head, huge and longlasting, with a compact looking and a soapy surface. Beautiful head. Malty aromas, to honey, caramel, biscuit and a medicine hint. The mouthfeel presents the same notes: honey, caramel and orangish hops to balance. Good development, medium carbonated and bodied, sweetish and lingering finish, watery to creamy texture. Probably, it is not a great beer, but I liked it a lot. I’ll repeat, for sure.

Maakun (684) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Reddish-brown, white head and nice visible carbonation. Nose has citrus, lychee, some toast, fruitcake. Something soapy in there as well. Taste is fruity, nice citrus, berries, medium bitter with a tart and long finish. Medium body with above-average carbonation. Overall: nice beer, but the soapy thing doesn’t do it for me. If it had a bit heavier maltyness it would be more balanced. Still enjoyable though, and definately interesting.

maekchu (2200) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2013
Bottle. Yeast, sweet dark fruit, and some fumes. Dark coppery brown, 1-2 finger tan head, good lace. Sugary, some dried dark fruit sweetness. A bit of carb burn in mid palate. Final settles out into a dry bitterness. Medium body. Okay. Not sooo interesting, really. A disappointment from this brewery.

Gusher! Very hazy amber beer, mahoooosive pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and crisp and semi dry. Lots of bitterish brett. A little fruit underneath but this is really brett dominated. Dry finish. Infected?
