SanfordBrewer (1392) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Hazy golden orange with a thin but enduring beige head. Syrupy full body with high carbonation.

Aroma: a ton of pale malt, a touch of chocolate malt, german noble hops, hints of toffee and piney american hops.

Taste: lots of pale malt, aromatic malts, fruity ale esters, toffee, caramel, citrusy hops, butter, and alcohol.

BeerSkull (1360) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2011
Malt aroma with hints of orange and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malt with chocolate undertones, some caramel and alcohol. An okay beer, but it does not really give me the "kick", can not say exactly why. Should probably try this again!

Linnet (1204) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2012
Ar: Dark fruit, jam, marmalade, vanilla, alcohol, Brown sugar, extremely rich. Ap: Ruby colour, medium beige head. F: Boozy, although the bottle is two years old, it is noticable hot. Some roastiness dark Fruit and malts, jam, dark fruit and brown sugar. M: Full bodied soft bubbles. T: no doubt this will be great given time to soften the alcohol, right now the alcohol is too prominent.

fletchfighters (1202) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 2, 2012
2012 Vintage Thanks to Baggio for the bottle Dark orange brown color, half finger of off white head that went to nada very quickly. Obvious ABV legs. nose is of dried salted pork, quite odd but nice. Underneith the pork nose was dried cherries, strawberries, apricots and a lot of near burnt caramel. Big nose. Big and rich taste and feel. Still a bit of pork taste but big caramel backbone followed by stone fruits . Big bodied, obvious alcohol, and low carbonation. Nice barleywine.
