jaghana (4729) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle 33cl. An amber ale with low carbonation and low head. Smell is on caramel and spices / agrumes notes. Aroma is medium sweet, on toasted malt, caramel and some spicy and herb notes such as juniper. Not too alcoholic, but complexity is low.

Actually drinkable. I was not expecting too much from this beer, but it turned out alright-ish.

Icedwarf (807) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Helder roodbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is sterk en licht kruidig, caramel en drop. Blijft helaas niet lang hangen.

jamaty (1352) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar oscura, cobriza. Aroma a malta y caramelo. Sabor algo metálico y bastante alcohólico en lo negativo, y caramelizada y lupulada en lo bueno. En conjunto no está mal, para comer. Sola puede resultar bastante cansina.

fly (1438) - austin, Tejas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2004
SWEET initially, malt way up front & sugary with hops on the distant hillside waving as if to say we may be there eventually. Adult candy - tricked or treated? Not really unpleasantly sweet, but edging up to it. Perhaps ever so slightly better than I’m implying, but not by a great measure. (and unlike the % listed here, this bottle says 6.6%)
