bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
33cl bottle Edeka Mohr, Bonn 02/2014. Bottled 11/2012. Pours a very cloudy wooden mauve once yeast is poured in. Boozy fig marmelade nose. Aroma of fallen autumn leaves, maroni, mushroom. Higher bitterness in the taste than expected, making this even more medicinal-woody. Belgian yeastiness and carbonation. Lingering yeast-hoppy finish. Overall blunt mix of prime old flavours.

Brandman (2310) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Brown body, light brown head. Aroma has sweet malt, raisins, flour, cookie dough. Flavour is flat malt and floury yeast, alcohol. Really bad and offlavoured.

esp0r (2302) - NORWAY - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours deep red and builds up the most amazing head you can imagine. Totally massive. Falls down to cm layer that you can increase to the double again with a litte glass twirl. Smells of ripe fruits, caramel, apple and malts. Full malt body with no sweetness at all. Fruity heavy flavors apply all over. Oily and dry on the palate. Nice hoppy bitterness with some resins

TheJestersBeer (2200) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a deep amber, thick beige head. Spicy aromas, lots of caramel and toffee malts, yeast, hops, apricots, chocolate. Off-dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Fruity, spicy taste, caramel, fudge, butterscotch, dried fruits, hops, yeast, slightly earthy. (2012-03-16)

Niall73 (2177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle 23/06/11. A very lively pour resulting in a dark amber beer with a big foamy slightly off-white head. Medium body. Big sweet biscuity aroma, with dark fruits - prunes mainly - coming through too. The biscuit, dark fruits are there as well as caramel, a touch of citrus and a nice smooth boozy bitter hit. Good.

MisoW (2173) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2015

ElDesmadre (2138) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Reddish brown with a big head of medium durability. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters (red apples, apple puree, redcurrant), with a quite strong Czech herbal hop quality. Sweetish-sourish (vaguely vinous), very pleasant smell. Full body, taste is partly sweetish because of the fruitiness and malt, ending with a strong and durable hop bitterness and an aftertaste of apples, hops and some green olives. This is a really great interpretation of the style.

ShivanDragon (2080) - 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.

TheCametron (2014) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle. Reddy orange with foamy white head. A fruity beer with a clear alcohol presence. Berries and bubblegum with a bitter finish. It’s not really very well balanced. The flavours are cobbled together.
