Bottle from Vika Vinmonopol. Golden redbrown colour. Mellow offwhite head. Intense floral, good fruity smell that reminds of plums; almost reminds you of putting your nose into a flowerbed. Spicy footprint from saaz hops. Well balanced bitterness and soft mouthfeel. Excellent.

corkyrory66 (1116) - BELGIUM - JAN 18, 2016
Une original handcrafted, classée par ratebeer en english strong ale. Malts pils et cara. Houblons saaz et premiant. Niveau abv de 7,5 % pour 16° plato, et 49 ebu. Mon exemplaire était à la moitié des 5 ans spécifiés par le brasseur en validité. Couleur ambre roux (ebc 43), au léger trouble. Bulles fines à montée lente. Mince toile diaphane en surface. Arômes d’herbes, malt cara, gentiane. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame très aromatique, fleurie, un rien anisée. Arrière-bouche plus équilibrée, mais assez fleurie. 2ème toujours anisée, et à l’amertume un rien piquante. Arrière-bouche qui touche au pale ale et au genièvre. 3ème plus terne, mais un rien plus maltée. Arrière-bouche sans réelle harmonie. Longueur qui tourne au pale ale de bon goût, assez classique. Jambes fines, groupées. Levure douce, ligne correcte. Alcool bien, progressif, mais il ne domine pas son sujet. Finale sans grande surprise, dans la ligne. CONCLUSION : départ étonnamment aromatique et original, pour une bière qui finit en pale ale classique, certes bien mais pas exceptionnel. Largement surcotée sur ratebeer ...

Tometclo (163) - FRANCE - SEP 24, 2015
Bière couleur rousse/ambrée, pas de mousse,faible carbonisation, au goût le caramel et une pointe d’amertume, l’alcool se sent trop facilement. 33CL Biérocratie

Aroma of malt, caramel, butterscotch, toffee, fruity notes, raisins, hops. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Nice full body, well-balanced beer.

Batavi (265) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2015
Fles via biernavigatie, uitgeschonken in glas van De Molen. Donker amberkleurig troebel bier met een kleine lichtbeige schuimkraag die na enige tijd wegzakt tot een fijne schuimlaag. Aroma's van donker gedroogd fruit, karamel mout, florale hop, honing en wijn. Het smaakpallet is bitter en zoet tegelijk, die elkaar mooi in balans houden. Smaaktonen van gedroogd fruit, vijgen en pruimen, florale hopsoorten. Zacht mondgevoel met een medium carbonatie. De afdronk is droog, bitter met een licht peperige finish. Molenbier is een klassieker van Brouwerij De Molen, een aangenaam bier met een verfijnd aroma en een licht complex smaakpallet. Deze stijl English Strong Ale lijkt op een lichtere variant van de Barley Wine, qua alcohol, hop en Plato gehalte.

Fin (8856) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle via Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham, consumed at home Sunday 19th July 2015 Amber on the pour with a filmy head, a little toffee on the nose and in the mouth though with a spicy edge, yeasty and with a hop tingle. This is far better than I expected in fact I really like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s gaff. Thanks to Colin Bois. Clouded reddy amber coloured pour with a small halo of offwhite head. Aroma is sweet berry, farmyard, farty, strawberry, nutty, berry. Flavour is composed of sweet, nutty toffee grains, fruity berry. Palate is slightly sticky, moderate carbonation, grainy on the tongue and a little thin. Bit too sweet and lacks depth.
