ElDesmadre (1716) - 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.

worldbeertaste (1690) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Hazy brownish amber with a thick, frothy, beige, nice thick lasting head. Smells of toasted malt, pepper, caramel, medium fruit - berries and peach, orange - citrus, and spiced hops. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Deep malty sweetness with dried fruit and caramel with a honey fruity middle and a dry, dark fruit finish. Very sweet and a light fruity bitterness.

dutchbeerpages (1660) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2011
Aroma of sweet fruit preserve and a huge white uneven head. True to its style with the bitterness of an IPA. Nice sweet aftertaste that stays forever. Bottle from Ton Overmars in Amsterdam.

Orange amber coloured beer. A very big head that holds nice. Bitter beer with some sweet fruit and caramel and spices. Good hoppy biterness.

BeerBaboon (1615) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Dark red with a little bit of brown in it. Very strong aroma of yeast and pastry. Smells like a frikkin home brew. Yet it’s a pretty good aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet. Pretty interesting brew.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2014
Bottle at home. It’s an English strong ale eh? Well, can’t remember a better one, more traditional ones but who gives a fuck about that? I love this stuff. Amber with a thick yellowed off white head. Nice aroma of malts, some strength, berries, caramel. Flavour has some spice, citrus and hop bitterness, also with a non English yeasty notes. Yeah.

jamestulloch (1562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Bottles from Provenance Wines and Cornelius. Murky chestnut body with a thin off-white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of dumpling, toffee, filter coffee, honey, smoked pine, Cadbury’s Fruit & Nut and amaretto. Flavour is surprisingly boozy. Notes of cinnamon, butterscotch, salted caramel, Soreen and Demerara sugar. Medium body with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation. An interesting beer that made me think.

Appearance: Dark brown, hazy. Some light tan head.
Aroma: Yeast, slight sourness. Tart fruit?
