anstei (645) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 18, 2015
375ml bottle. Dusty muffled nose hiding strong flavours that appear later in the mouth. Nutty and bold, smoothly carbonized, full-bodied. Very good, if it werent for the odd nose.

GTAEgeek (1665) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2015
12 oz. bottle from a trade with Treebute. Dark, ruby brown, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. Nose is maple syrup, walnuts, resin, burnt caramel, and a bit of rye. Sweet and malty up front, with a long, bitter aftertaste. Medium to heavy body, syrupy, and a bit thin. This is an aromatic and complex beer, but the unpleasant aftertaste keeps it from excellence.

mcberko (11204) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2015
375mL bottle, pours a deep dark caramel brownish orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out brown sugar, bready malt and some toffee. Flavour is exactly the same, with bready malt, toffee, and a touch of brown sugar. Not a whole lot of complexity but its cohesive and well-balanced. Decent.

MrHangover (3680) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, shared @ tasting. Pours a clear dark mahogany beer with a thin off white head on top. Aroma of dark chocolate, light coffee and toast & roast. Flavor is bittersweet, with hints of both coffee and chocolate. Very full, well balanced body going on here. Soft carbonation, sweet aftertaste and overall just good stuff.
