bhensonb (12596) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Capped 375 from Healthy Spirits. Pours hazy caramel color with a slight whitish head. Aroma is brown sugar, wood and somewhat fruity hop. Seems a bit oxidized, but maybe thatís part of itís charm. Full bodied. Flavor is sweet. Brown sugar, treacle ... There is significant heat. Seems to be some fruit. Really tasty stuff. Iím liking it a lot.

Bubeer (127) - - AUG 29, 2015
Cloudy amber. Thin head with average retention. Complex aroma with notes of butter, malt, vanilla and hazelnut. Average sweet. You can feel the alcohol burning in the back of your throat. Full body with pleasant oily texture.

martjoobolut (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2015
Bottle (from beergium.com). Pours amber with beige head. The head doesnít stay. Aroma is, sweet, malt, caramel, alcohol, fruits, raisins. Flavor follows the nose. Finish is alochol. Overall: way too boozy, but was my favorite of the 3 we tried.

Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared at chrisoís Easter 2015 tasting - London. Yet another monster from Ken; cheers for sharing! Pours clear gold with a white cream topping. The nose holds honey, caramel, light acetone, booze. Medium to big sweet flavor with marmalade, woody dryness, sugar, maple, caramel. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Hot finish, thick and boozy, with more syrupy caramel, jammy citrus. OK, but certainly heavy handed.

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle shared at Guinnís house. Pours a light caramel color. Aroma is caramel, sweet fruits, very malty. Flavor follows with lots of dates and raisins. Contrary to other reviews, I did not find this to be boozy. Not noticeably as much as the alcohol would make one think. Overall, a nice sipping beer.

Marduk (4072) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 6, 2015
375ml bottle @martjoobolutís, thanks.. Clear amber color (finally!). Tiny size, bubbly head, disappears. This one smells bit different. Rice sake and woody notes in aroma. Apples, sake, malty, sourish in taste. Sake-like sense in aftertaste too. Not for me. Are we down to single degree series now?

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Copy-paste review because of copy-paste brews.
Carefully poured, even the third glass was cloudy. Messy alcoholic white grape must and doughy aroma, ugh. Fuck me, booze!!!! Tastes of alcohol burn. Some breadiness. Hard to believe that this isnít just doped with vodka, itís so boozy.
Difference: more raisins in the aroma.

suurjuust (1882) - ESTONIA - JUL 3, 2015
Murky amber beer, small tan head. Nose is caramel, toasty malt and booze, some fruit. Flavor is malty, some hop notes, some booze and vanilla. Finishes with booze, woody vanilla notes, fruit and boozy booziness. Damn this is boozy.
