3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by malt, while the flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel. And it has a good body.

Bottled. Copper colour, near no head. Fruity toffee aroma with a little bit of apples. Potent and very sweet with crystal malt character and clean, sugary mouthfeel. A touch of grassy hops among the sugar in the finish.

Bottled (BB 06/2004)
Nut brown. Tanned small head. Sweet malty aroma. Good smooth palate: sweet, slightly alcoholic. Some prunes like in Belgian ales. Hides alcohol quite well and finishing short.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fiery reddish-brown colour. No head. Rich toffeeish aroma. Very sweet flavour - chewy toffeeish malts. They carry enough crystal malt earthiness and are extracted well enough to provide balance. Sweet, slightly smokey finish.

1l bottle (SOPP2009)
Woh - bread pudding! Big sweet malts and raisins. Slightly gravy-like taste, but apart from that, it’s very sweet and hugely full bodied. Rich toffeeness in the mouth, and the burnt corners of bread pudding.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, thanks to djoeye for sharing. Dense, off-white head. Clear copper coloured body. Good amount of lacing. Malt-accented aroma, some dusty hops. Mid-sweet bread-like malty flavours in addition to herbal hops and a touch of prunes. Rather sweet ending. Mostly hidden alcohol. Okay, in danger of getting cloying sweet (Tromsř 11.11.2014).

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. L13/12/13. BB 14/04/2014. From Lithuania. Ačiū Tautvydas!
Clear dark copper colour with a small greyish light tan head.
The aroma is metal, sweet malt, caramel and bread.
The flavour is also quite sweet with diacetyl, sweet maltiness, breadiness and some dryish metal. Not that great. Lacks the freshness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, a fruity note and a toasty hint. Sweet flavor with caramel and a cough syrup note. Medium-bodied. Sweet, one-dimensional and not too pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small offwhite head. Clear brown body. Roasty sugary caramelly aroma with rye crisp bread notes. Sweet-dryish caramelly earthy rye crisp bread taste. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish earthy caramelly roasted sugar aftertaste with syrupy rye crisp bread notes. Very nice and drinkable. Excellent. (0.33l bottle, from Bambalyne, Vilnius.)
