hobsch (408) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle 0.33l. Pours red to brown with a steady creamy beige head. Strong carbonation. Aroma is caramel, bread, yeast with basement. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter, caramel, roasted malt, earthy. Aftertaste is quite bitter, slightly sour. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden. Good.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - APR 4, 2012
Dark ruby/browny with a huge white/beige foam head that never fall. Nose is typically English (specific hop? or malts that are used for that brew?) but some off-flavours can be noted such as burnt grain. In mouth: too much foam, malt dominates, but a cap’s metallic taste spoil the malty profile then bitterness surrounds everything in aftertaste.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 It starts out tasting sweet, than some sourness kicks in but the bitterness dominates in the lasting finish. The taste is roasty and of dark chocolate. The aroma is sweet and caramel dominates. It has a dark copper colour and a large off-white head that diminishes. I was thoroughly impressed by this brew! (Bottle)

borisz (374) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2012
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control. Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness. Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.

unstablefable (224) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Pours a deep cloudy dirty ruby, thick of white heads which clings to the sides, aroma wow tropical hops with a conference Belgium yeast undertone soapy fairy liquid, taste carries on with soap little bit of a sour touch with some earthy hops lingering at the end. Perfect consistency, little bit thick.
