Backlog. Bottle, enjoyed in 2008. Dark amber (orange to brown) color. Dense, uneven head, with 1 cm retention. Aromaís: fruits, perfumy, a bit herbal/spicy. More spices retronasal, as well as some roast. Flavor is hard to describe, complex, fruity, herbal spicy, with perhaps a hint of sweetness. Body is medium to full. Long finish, with a subtle bitterness. Complex and interesting.

A 2006 vintage shared at a tasting at KyotoLeftyís place. A cloudy light amber color with a musty fruity belgian aroma. Medium bodied, sweet malty goodness, woodsy, well balanced. A fantastic malt forward taste, really nice it aged well. A mellow drinking beer perfect for sipping.

I picked up a bottle from Hop Jacks in Pensacola. Pours an amber brown color with white head that dissipated quickly. Smells of sweet grass, caramel, touch of sour notes. Taste is mostly sweet caramel and some tartness. Mouthfeel is rather watery. Otherwise, Iím glad I only bought a single bottle of this beer. Not great

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Lovely, slightly hazy mid-amber colour, thick, even white-tan head. Smells fruity, caramel, gentle spice. Something else I donít recognise - if itís the sake notes, I must try some shochu! Taste is sweet malty, balanced bitter on finish, subtle spice kick. Slick, soft body. Nice.

330 ml bottle from Patrickís. Unclear dark orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Strong aroma of dry fruit, caramel and warming vinous alcohol.Feels a bit spicy yeast as well, rather complex in the nose. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, lots of dry fruit, spicy and vinous alcohol. Full body and long aftertaste in same style as the flavor with a pleasant sweet alcoholic finish. A really nice one.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Couple of floaters. Big orange aromas, with a fresh and unusual sweet booziness. Taste is pretty full-on. Sweet heat and light bitter with more orange, towards pith. Oily texture, soft carbonation, honey coming through now. Mmm... enjoyed this.

Bottle. Thick looking amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is substantially hopped with a toffee like flavour and a deeply bitter finish. Overall a nice well hopped strongly bitter beer.
