berlinoise2go (586) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Huge offwhite head, slowly diminishing, sticky appearance with pretty lace patterns. Slightly hazy, amber colour. Aroma of herbal hops, caramel, plum, wood, yeast, hint of licorice and a slight tartness. Medium body, lively yet soft carbonation. Taste is moderately sweet, before a powerful, resinous hop bitterness takes over. Well balanced overall. Hard to categorize, but pleasant and interesting.

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2011
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.

Bottled@Monks Wallingatan, Stockholm. Deep amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, some mild alcohol as well as some nectary notes. Flavour is caramel malts, fruity and floral bitterness, some mild honey, nectar and mild toffeeish notes as well. Grassy and floral notes in the finish.

pivnizub (8576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle: Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, lacy off-white head, moderate caramelly fruity and distinctive hoppy nose; robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, pretty soft; dry lingering - with hops sticking to the palate - hoppy finsh, balancing sweet dried fruits and malt in the aftertaste. Very good English Strong Ale, even though brewed in the Netherlands…

Jacob23_5 (128) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy dark red, substantial, off-white foamy head. Nose presents lovely mango, orange, almost buttery, definitely perfumed. Decent zesty hoppiness with a bit of citrus sweetness to back it up. Decent fizz to it. Very nice.

skortila (4345) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2012
Bottled. The aroma has citric hops, caramel, toffee malts, light toasted, oranges, hint of spice (cinnamon or something alike). Hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white, creamy and rocky, big head. The taste is light-moderate bitter initially and has caramel malty sweetness. The finish is more citric hopbitter. Medium bodied. Good.

Idiosynkrasie (3235) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2012
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy reddish amber colour with huge, firm, frothy to creamy, lacing, white to off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet toasted malty and minimally grainy, with some bitter hop emanating from the huge head, decent hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet toasted malty, grainy, dark fruity notes transform to a chocolately touch. Sticky finish. Not to its disadvantage more lively carbonated than an "English" English Strong Ale.
