SamTheBarrel (452) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2013
500ml bottle, pours clear dark amber with a medium sized beige head with good retention. Taste and aroma of apricots, dark maple syrup, orange peels and toffee. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium-light body, average carbonation and a smooth somewhat creamy texture. A good English Strong Ale, but for a Winter Ale not much different to Fuller’s regular brews.

Flaska från SB. Mörk kopparfärgad vätska med fingerhögt beige skum. Maltig, rostad knäckig, toffe-ig doft med frukt i botten. Torr, besk smak med en maltig sötma. Stram munkänsla. Kort eftersmak.

Oelbas (176) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2013
Gyldenbrun med ikke særlig holdbar cremefarvet top. Masser af malt og nøddeagtige elementer i duften. Smagen er fyldig og blød med en god, balanceret bitterhed. Der er ikke meget "old" over den smag. Meget gin balance med en lang bittersød eftersmag. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (5827) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Norma Jean. Aroma of malt, some fruitiness, biscuity notes, oxidation and a bit of caramel. Sweetish malty flavor with fruitiness, a light oxidized touch, a bit of caramel and a hint of cookies. Medium-bodied.

bartlebier (1724) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2013
Bottle sample at Planète Soif bar, Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse 2013. Nutty, toffee caramalts with superficial sweetness complement spicy UK hops. Drinks pleasantly like an ale or richer ESB, hop & rind aftertaste of a UK IPA, with some complexity. Hard to place but more than OK.

Grima (2098) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours strong copper colored with creamy, off-white head. Smell has some licorice, toffee, caramel malts and dark fruits. Starts with lots of dark red fruits, some licorice, roasted nuts and caramel malts. The middle part has some more bitterness, paired with bitter roasted malts, slight sourish dark fruits and lots of toffee. Goes into a bitter malty, very nutty finish with toffee and caramel.

espenra (873) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2013
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 2012-10-10. It poured a dark orange colour with a medium big foamy head. Aroma is nuts, malts, butterscotch and some raisins. Flavour is round, but with some bitterness. Nuts and raisins are more noticable than the aroma. Short aftertaste.
