Oakes (12352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Dark brown with caramel head. Light caramel and toast notes, maybe a hint of butter. Fairly soft, with some light milk chocolate. Basically an easy-going sweetish dark beer, but in a good way.

HenrikSoegaard (10474) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2005
Wonderfull smoky aroma, there must be smokemalt in this, creamy fully lasting head, and dark redbrown colour. Wonderfull to look at. It tastes quite average though, short finish that doesn´t add up to the aroma
