pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle @ Stella tasting. Pours clear auburn/chestnut with a huge frothy beige head. Aroma is quite hoppy considering the age, grapefruit, pine, caramel, red berries, chocolate, white cheese, resin and flowery. Taste is moderate sweet, heavy bitter, light acidic. Body is medium+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes dry and very bitter with booze and spice.

Staffan47 (906) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2014
Vertikalprovning på Milkeller HQ, dagen före CBC -14. Kraftigt livligt skum. Klar kopparfärg. Spritig med maltig maltsötma. Otippat lättdrucken. Tyst och seriös provning inledningsvis. Tar emot efter några klunkar i sommarvärmen.

fletchfighters (1404) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2013
Dark ruby color. Huge 2-3 finger head, off white in color. Great retention and body to head. Good lacing. Nose is dark fruits, strawberry, stone fruit and some pine and grapefruit. Hops have held up quite well in the nose. Taste is stone fruits, strawberry, dry pine and grapefruit. Fades in and out between sweet and dry. Quite bitter still. Light carbonation and dry finish. Medium bodied. Really impressed how well it has held up for the age of the beer. Solid stuff

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - I hauled 1.5L sucker all the way from the Netherlands, so I hope you fellas enjoyed it! Pours clearish, red-brown with a fine, creamy beige head. Aged malts and caramel on the nose, some pine, dry bread. Medium to big sweet flavor, quite bitter with lots of earth and spicy, dry pine, some dry toffee. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with toasty bread, dry pine and dry caramel. Good one.

Bottle - big thanks to Leighton at Jack and his very own birthday pleasantries, 13/04/13. #730/1300. Hazed dark mahogony brown with a decent sized beige head that retains well. Nose carries dark malt tones, dates, brown sugars, dark fruits, woody notes, boozey - a little on the harsh side. Taste comprises dark toffee, brown sugars, earthy woodyness, more booze - again a little harsh, nutty tones, booze drenched sponge and biscuit base. Full bodied, dry in the finish. Ok but a little overy boozey.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
Big magnum bottle, supplied by Mr. Smith. The pour’s deep rusty red with a massive off white head. It was a real work out pouring this heavy bottle, even for a jacked bro such as myself. The nose is marzipan, toasted nut. Pecan pie. Red berry fruit leather. Ribbon candy sweetness. The taste is more rich berry. Big toffee malt profile. Hints of tart sweetness in the finish. Pretty mellow for 10%. Full body, fine carbonation. Overall, pretty good.
