UDBeernut (1591) - Near Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Nice deep amber color capped by a small sized off white heads. Scent trends sweet with caramel, plum, balanced by light grass. Taste is also sweet, caramel, light plum and cherry. Wish the flavors were more pronounced but tasty no the less. Light bodied, yum. Rated via BeerBuddy

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 29, 2014
Sötét vörösesbarna, közepesen testes főzet egy maláta alapú ízvilággal, melyből az alkohol is kidomborodik. Rendkívül könnyen fogyasztható, szájban tartva igen kellemes érzetet kelt. Kissé likőrös jellegű egy enyhe komlós árnyalattal, azonban a gabonás jelleg adja lényegi karakterét, mely által egyszersmind laktatóvá is válik a sör.

On tap at Fireworks. Pours a translucent cherry brown with lasting head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is malty caramel sweetness, dark fruits and slight yeast spiciness. Flavor is same, with emphasis on sweetness from fruit, namely banana. Delicious and malty. Lots of toffee as well. Medium bodied, sweet malty finish.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Mahogany red with a two-finger pillowy head. Aromas of toast, toffee, grapefruit and Belgian yeast. Heavy caramel malt up front, quickly dissipated by grapefruit rind, honey, oak and slight grassy bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a pleasant dark fruit/toffee sweetness in the finish.

Bottle with thanks to Nagi! Pours dark cloudy mahogany with a huge initially fizzy tan head that eventually gets creamy and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, spices, yeast, peppery, floral. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, lots of dark sugar and yeast-spicy notes, dried fruits. Quite enjoyable actually.

It is cloudy and dark brown in color. Through the murky body lots of visible carbonation can be seen rising up to the thick tan head above. This thick tan head has a dusting of darker brown yeast that looks like it was sprinkled with cinnamon. The retention is excellent and it leaves lots of cool lace rings and patterns. The aroma is very big and pleasant. It has wonderful sweet bready a fruity maltiness with sour, funky and earthy yeast. It has a deep rich malty character with notes of rich sweet breads, some dark sweet fruits, and sour cherries. It also has a defiant Belgian yeast influence as well, with some funky, dusty, earthy notes. (All in good balance) Also in good balance are the hop notes which are kind earthy and floral. They bring a good balance of hop bitterness to the finish which is a prefect mix of all complexity. The palate has a smooth firmness with a very lively and active yet gentle carbonation.
