teddybeer (2165) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
[Thanks to McTapps and kevnic2008]. Bottle. Brown colour with a beige head, good duration. Aroma has toasted malts notes, with hints of caramel, noble hops and dry fruits and toffee. Flavor is moderate sweet with a good maltiness, some caramel and sirup hints, moderate sweet and slightly bittery. The final has notes of dry fruits, mainly nuts with a light sweetness and plumbcake notes. Creamy and dense on palate.

Kita (1000) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 27, 2013
Swing top bottle, 0.50l. Clear brown color with mid-sized creamy light brown head and normal visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, dried fruits, herbal hops with notes of alcohol. Taste starts with heavy sweet toasted malt, follows fruity with spicy mouthfeel, strong alcohol note, while finish is light bitter. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Real double pleasure, but too sweet for my taste...

Marcius (197) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Dark amber color with medium foam without duration. Aroma of toasted malt . Very sweet , in contrast with the toasted malt and a slight bitterness . A good beer but could be a little less sweet.

RexTalionis (2369) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Flip-top 50 cl bottle. Pours clear mahogny in color with a small off-white head. Bready maltyness, brown sugar and dark syrup sweetness in aroma. Sweet malty and notes of syrup in taste. A bit of soursweet dark bread as well in aftertaste. Some light burnt grainy notes as well.

ration (1923) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
300813. Bottle at home. Pours clear dark ruby with a nice head that disappears leaving a ring. Aroma malts, sugar. Too sweet, feels like half baked.

Marstonlad (402) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 30, 2013
A color of reddish copper with a little white head. Aroma is overall very malty, plenty of bready and nutty notes. Taste is at first surprisingly sweet but dries a little towards the finish. German style maltiness dominates with caramel, bread and bisquit. Medium bodied, smooth and drinkable palate. Overall this malts-driven beer is very tasty but initially a bit too sweet for me.
