Lore (1064) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 25, 2014
hazy brownish orange colour, morerate sized, dense, long lasting yellowish head; aroma of caramel, overripe fruits, floral hops, and hints of honey; taste of intensive maltyness, caramel, honey, fruity notes, some grapefruits and hoppy bitterness - a bit like a barley wine with lower amount of malts and hops - a BARELY wine :-)

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.

unstablefable (225) - 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.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This hazy dark amber-brown beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has pineapple and peppery hop flavours, almond and toffee notes with a slight sugary sweet, extremely dry and tart finish.

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)
