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

Niall73 (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - 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.

Maakun (2341) - 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 doesnt do it for me. If it had a bit heavier maltyness it would be more balanced. Still enjoyable though, and definately interesting.

TET (2333) - Kaarina, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
A dark brown beer with a big, lasting and beige head. Aroma is caramelly and sweet, berries, strawberries, "wet wood", surprisingly "berryjuice" like aroma. Taste is toffeeish and malty, sweet berries, after beginning taste turns into dryer and wooden hoppyness takes place, dark fruits, aftertaste is tight and slightly biting. Medium+ bodied, nice and style like drinkability. Aftertaste isnt very nice, otherwise, berry, quite unique and interesting beer.

TheJestersBeer (2308) - 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)

NikkTwist (2235) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB.

TheCametron (2209) - 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. Its not really very well balanced. The flavours are cobbled together.
