bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2009
Draught. Bitter & Twisted Beer Festival. Pours a really nice golden brown with a slightly reddish tint. Small tan head that fell away pretty quickly. Really nice caramel and toffee aromas. Some nut and toasted aromas also. Flavours are quite malty with plenty of toffee. Dome bitterness on the finiish but nicely balance. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Nice beer.

Nel complesso non è male, ma alla lunga può davvero stancare. Comunque va bene per una serata in compagnia...

mikkopen (935) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 20, 2008
500 ml bottle. Colour dark reddish brown with a thin head. Aroma is rather sweet, with raisins and plumes. The taste is sweet and fruity, caramel-like. Leaves a nice warm feeling in the mouth after swallowing. Some more hoppy bitterness would have been nice, to balance the sweetness, but, all in all, a very tasty and enjoyable ale.

Bottle. Dark brown, some ruby red hues; almost purplish. Beige head fizzles away quickly. Nose is barley, booze, and berries; port as it warms. Taste is berries, alcohol, fresh water, port, and cough syrup. The hop finish is very light and overshadowed by a sweet syrup taste. Medium mouthfeel. Could benefit from a little more body.

Martin243 (911) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2011
500ml bottle from B&M. Fruity-Toffee aroma from a beautiful ruby red beer. White head which quickly disappeared. Sweet heavy, and sticky caramel toffee syrupy flavours. Little carbonation, which would liven this beer up. Alcohol dominant. Not bad, but a little too sweet, a little too flat, and a little too sticky to be really good. Wouldn’t want to drink more than one (at a time.)
