RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 3, 2007
Bottle. Ruby with chestnut hints, huge firm tan head. Nose is quite peppery, malty and some hop - rather a nose of meaty, sausagey, herby tones. Mouth is quite malty, sweet and chocolate. Hints of espresso, roasted. Follows on as an oak smoke, slightly bitter palate. Quite good, not fantastic, little carbonated, needs a dimension that only cask can offer.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2007
Slightly briny, sweet chocolatey snout dusted wth espresso and hopsack mustiness. Very inviting. Attractive ruby pour topped with a creamy and well-retained beige head. Lacework aplenty. Smooth, silky and chocolatey with plenty of full-flavoured coffee bean roastiness in the finish. Bitterly smoky roasted malt afters. Rounded and impressive.

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Bottled. Clear, brown beer with a tan to beige head. Coffee, roastiness and dry bitterness in the aroma. The flavor has mocha-coffee, some hop-bitterness and coffee-bitterness. Medium to full body. A nice ESB, leading the thoughs towards a porter. (070302)
