Foffern (1408) - 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.

Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thick bubbly orangey white head. Mango, slight honey, thick perfumed hop nose. Juicy citrus front flows into slight estery sweetness, with a drying peppery hop linger.

MoritzF (8676) - GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 7.5% abv) Slightly hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet malty and distinctively fruity aroma with notes of candied berries, strawberries and peaches, accompanied by shades of caramel in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and fruity taste with present herbal and slightly woody hops; dry-ish bitter hoppy and quite lasting finish with fruity spots. Really nice. 25.XII.11

visionthing (3526) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours lightly clouded amber with a huge, frothy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and malt with earthy notes. Smells a bit strange, but quite pleasant taste.

maledictum (713) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 2, 2012
Bottle. Clear deep red pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops and some tea leaves. Flavor is a nice balance between strong bitter hops and a nice rich malt base. Thick body and very drinkable.

tfredvik (1355) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2012
A slightly hazy medium amber reddish body with a creamy, long-lived head that laces the glass very well. The aroma is sweet, loaded with pleasantly overripe fruits, e.g. apples. Also caramel and some spices. Medium sweet taste with a medium to heavy bitter finish. The flavours are actually not that intense, and they are far from being as sweet as the aroma led me to believe. There is a nice resinous touch in the aftertaste, but also caramel and sweet plum, some faint dark dried fruits, citric hints and some alcohol. Medium to full body, creamy and smooth texture, soft to medium carbonation. Good stuff!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 7 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Sizzler80 (501) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2012
Dark copper pour with a white lid. Strong aromas of alcohol, caramel, citrus, floral, hops and malt. Its bitter and a little sweet from the caramel. The alcohol feel is quite strong. Its creamy and the citrus can be tasted almost in isolation at times. There’s a lot going on and the flavour profile varies almost each sip. Medium carbonation. Another really enjoyable offering from De Molen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dEnk (4193) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is loads of caramel, some fruity and spice, all covered in spicy hops. Flavour is medium sweet with caramel and fruit, touch of hop bitterness. Nice one.

jaghana (4574) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle 33cl from bierkoning, a cloudy amber-red beer with huge head and good retention. Nose is on barley sugar and honey. Aroma is very bitter and stringent with bitter orange peel notes and grapefruit hops, very bitter with intense resin and grassy hops. Very strange kind of beer, nice anyway a bit sharp.
