Jimthechap (1566) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 3, 2014
It says ruby on the label and thatís a good reflection of the truth. Ruby to polished mahogany in colour with a skim of head and evident sparkle. Very rich aroma of plums, figs and steamed pudding. Thereís some amber resinous quality and ripe autumnal fruits as well. It really is a complex aroma. A sweet, oily body and elegant flavours. Just a suggestion of bitterness but long finishing because of the mass of malty flavours. Indeed, malt is the superstar and begs for me to have more of this.

mile (2886) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light berry fruitiness, light alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light fruitiness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness, light bread and faint hoppyness, light - some alcohol. Bit one-dimensional, lacks character. Could use more bitterness to balance alcohol and caramel sweetness.

allmyvinyl (2905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
500ml bottle from the brewery online shop. Pours clear copper brown, thin white head. Nuts, toffee, dried fruit aromas. Taste is more toffee, very light bitterness at the back end. Hides the strength well. Nice idea, would like to try more on the series.

Bottle. Mahogany ruby clear. Autumny hoppy leaves, herbals. Some daker caramels. Full bodied, a bit sticky. Some sweetness, metallic tones, slightly roasted grains. Flavourful and all, but not really my thing.
