NikkTwist (1577) - 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.

Osprey87 (1578) - WALES - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Two years and one day old. Dark orange/red with the usual huge head which endures. Smell - old ale, caramel, yeast, molasses, tangerine. Carbonation - mid to soft. Taste - typical De Molen caramel, liquorice, sweet honey flavours with a decent dose of bitterness. Enjoyable high quality beer. Not quite to my taste though, which reduces the rating slightly.

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.

Foffern (1180) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2011
Dark hazy amber with a big, thick head. Aromas of raisins, caramel, bread, leather and woody. Some roasty smoke in the end. Lightly sweet, medium bitterness not lingering. Above medium body, slick and little bit oily, flat carbo. Overall it feels like a strong english ale with a hint of Belgium. Reminds a bit of a british barley wine.
