DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2009
UPDATED: APR 1, 2009 Beautifully sodden toffee, fruit cake and house spiciness aroma chewing with succulent dried fruit, caramelised malt, berry fruit juiciness, hop resins, hazelnut and yeast. Quite a sniffer, it’s got to be said. Brilliant chestnut beer with a honeycombed white head. Caramel slickness, lush dark fruit and toffee leading you right up the garden path expecting nothing but sweetness, then comes a hammer of bittering hop, and another layer of buttered white toast, honey and Crunchy Nut sweetness lingering for an age and leaving you gasping for another slug. Great length as they say. Slick, lacy and fizzless. Nibble of herbal hop spice. Big juicy sipper/swigger despite the pasteurisation. I like it.

Ser inte mycket ut för världen, men överväldigar med en komplex smak som omfattar allt från rågbröd till russin. Lagom stor beska och en fyllighet som ligger bra i munnen. En vinnare helt enkelt.

larsga (6816) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2009
Big yellowish brown lasting head. Deep brown body. Fruity caramelly wooden aroma with spicy dusty toffee notes. Dry-sweet malty wooden papery taste with wild berry and cocos notes. Soft, mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodided. Dry fruity wooden cocos aftertaste with chocolatey notes. Clashes a bit. Still nice, though. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Charlottenberg.)

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Orange amber pour with a decent head for a minute. The aroma is malty with hints of caramel, toffee, and fruit such as orange and apples perhaps. Sweet and malty. Caramel, toffee, ripe fruit. English hop bitterness in finish.
