BlackHaddock (4687) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Three 12 oz bottles after a day in the sun on 15th March 2014. Pours an amber red colour with non-staying head. Caramel malty sweetness dominate the brew in both the aroma and taste. My sweet tooth took to it straight away, hence three bottles from the six pack in one go. A little one dimensional maybe but I liked it.

renffisch (868) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Draft at the whiskey girl San Diego, red amber colour, very sweet nose and horribly malty. Tastes warm even at freezing temperature, not good at all!

Pours a dark amber. Smells of caramelized malts. Has a mild caramel taste which doesn’t last.

jrob21 (2849) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 30, 2014
On tap in San Diego. Was definitely ready for a beer by the time I got a chance to get to the bar today. Light toasty grain with caramel and toffee flavors, a little bit of nuttiness working. Bit of a metallic finish.
