Bottle. Rich amber beer with a nice cream head. Malt and light citrus aroma. Malt and caramel flavor with light citrus. Medium bodied. Malt and caramel lingers with light woodsiness and light citrus.

drowland (6517) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2015
2/22/15. 50cL bottle my dad brought down! Clear red pour with a huge khaki head, good lacing. Lightly skunked aroma, sweet maltiness, black tea, toffee, caramel, fruity. Sweet, malty flavor, lots of toffee, some stone fruit, a suprising hop bitterness and character, mild skunk. Not bad, actually.

Erzengel (4502) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2015
*Old rating from 2010. Nice strong ale. A bit sweetish, malty with a nice Ale-characteristic. Easy to drink, fresh but tends to be sticky. Nice but too sweet for me.

Fluxing (433) - POLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Kolor ciemnobursztynowy, klarowne. Piana obfita, gwaltownie sie tworzy, szybko opada, przegazowane. W aromacie karton, miod, metal, diacetyl, przypalony karmel, lekkie slodkie owoce, da sie wyroznic morele, lekki alkohol. W odczuciu polwytrawne, gladkie. W smaku puste, lekko karmelowe, i owocowe, do tego metal i diacetyl, pojawia sie tez jakas minimalna, rzeska nuta, moze nawet chmielowa. Goryczka niska, ziolowa, lodygowa.

sucharek147 (61) - Dębica, POLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Barwa to ciemny bursztyn. Piana początkowo niezła, ale szybko opada, a w zasadzie znika. Aromat dość słabo wyczuwalny, słodowy, słodki. Smak też słodowy, ogůlnie pustawy.

spittle8 (124) - California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Ntro draft from the Stag & Lion, San Diego. Creamy head, though not as voluminous or exceptional as that of the Boddingtonís we compared it against. Much more flavor than the Boddingtonís - Henís Tooth had a nice sour, earthy flavor and a pleasant aftertaste. A solid beer that could be drank all day, but with more character than the Boddingtonís we rated it against, at the cost of creaminess.

574deadzone (1121) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a fairly thick cream-colored head that settles leaving some nice soapy lace. Nose involves a hearty malt character, somewhat fruity, toasty, a bit chocolaty, some herbal and earthy notes. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter. Medium-heavy body, toward syrupy, fairly active, with a lengthy sweet herbal finish. A decent brew, well-played.

Very enjoyable beer, dark colour and strong flavour. Not much head. Surprised at low ratings

flamdonk (5) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2014 does not count
A little sweeter finish than Iíd prefer but otherwise a decent beer. Nice brown color, with pronounced yeast and malt flavor. I didnít find it as bitter as other reviewers. Not sure Iíd buy it again however.
