marcus (7172) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange copper with a nice off-white head and a nutty malt aroma. There is a hearty sweet malt flavor with a tasty hop profile and a slightly bitter finish. A pleasure to drink.

ClubGonzo (4497) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber-hued orange body with a small off-white head. Nose is honey, caramel, toffee, biscuits, hints of red fruits, raisins, grains and bread. Taste is caramel, raisins, prunes, toffee, biscuits, vanilla and hints of burnt sugar, grass and port wine. Medium body and carbonation. Pleasantly accessible despite a fair amount of complexity, the stylish elegance of this series have yet to fail me. A bit more body would have made it even better, but all in all this is a very nice ESA.

BeerViking (2931) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Red-brown with a fast-settling head and aromas of malty orange and something lightly herbal. Dry, fruity and herbal bitter, with hints of toffee, bittersweet and dry yet syrupy finish. Reminiscent of a herbal bitter liqueur. Itíll be interesting to see this age.

Flavour of toasted malts, nuts, sweetness, some mild graininess, white bread and some herbal notes. Medium bodied. Alcohol burns. Feels raw. Needs aging. Like 10 years or so. Nowhere close to the 10+ year old vintages. Decent. 7-3-7-3-13 3.3
