jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin frothy tan head. The aroma is big roast and a hint of yeast with some burnt treacle. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth liqourice, slightly alcoholic palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a long bitter finish. This was a lovely heart-warming beer and perhaps one of the best I’ve ever had from Marstons.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Bottled, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton-upon-Humber. Deep ruy red, fluffy but shortlived off white head, gentle condition. Sweet malt aromas with suggestions of cola and a sticky background melanoidin note, sweet and fruity in the mouth with a very chalky bitterness and some earthiness, gentle bitterness initially in the finish but a sticky sweetness takes over and lingers longest laced with some peppery spiciness and a hint of retronasal alcohol.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Brown bottle, 500ml, best before mid Dec 2007, drank 1st Feb 2007. Poured into two Corsendonk glasses, more for me, less for the wife. Ruby Red, almost port like in colour, but not as thick. Good tanned head, left for the rim of the glass fairly swiftly though. Plum or Christmas pudding in aroma, sweetness also comes through in waves. The taste is a bit too sweet for me, the Christmas fruits from the aroma come along, which only adds to the rich almost sickly flavour. Burnt caramel, and the Christmas feel give the sweetness to much leeway and the resultant mouthfeel is also too sweet for my liking. 7.6%, too sweet, but a half before bed, would not be a problem.

Geiserich (3103) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUL 9, 2007
Bottled: Dark brown color, foamy brownish head. Fruity, sweet flavor, plums and malt. Full bodied, sour sweet flavor. Fruity notes of sourly plums, light notes of cough syrup. Bitter sweet finish. Long dry end. Light alcoholic. Nice complex beer.

tiong (3069) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
170ml bottle @ vPBF

1977 vintage! - Pours murky dark brown with a small foamy head. Aroma of slightly sweetish malts, caramel, berries. Taste is smooth and malty with some mild hints of sweetness, caramel, syrup and raisins. Finish is smooth and sweetish with some malty notes. Okay, quite well aged beer.
