I’m waiting for the head on this to go down so I can taste it....and man oh man....what a head. its a light wheat color, and so thick! I could spoon this and use it for cappucino! little surprised by the smell....a little more rank than I suspected....really kinda sweet, but not fruity....little concerned.... nice taste! Clean, bright...really crisp. Its hard to make out any one individual taste in this brew....not overly malty or strong.....not bad. Not great....different. I like this...

A little sweeter finish than I’d prefer but otherwise a decent beer. Nice brown color, with pronounced yeast and malt flavor. I didn’t find it as bitter as other reviewers. Not sure I’d buy it again however.

Senka (566) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2014
50cl bottle. Served at 10degC. Pours clear brown, with velvet head. Some oak and corn aromas. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation. Easy bitter finish. Not exactly strong ale - rather well made bitter.

graf0 (119) - POLAND - SEP 2, 2014
W aromacie Hen’s Tooth można wyczuć nuty słodowe, karmelowe, ciastek nadziewanych lejącym się kremem z zawartością alkoholu. To ostanie wrażenie także pozostaje mi ze smaku tego piwa oraz do tego dochodzę również posmaki karmelu oraz mniej przyjemna lekko alkoholowa goryczka. Z wyglądu w tej przezroczystej butelce przypomina whiskey z delikatną, szybko redukującą się pianą. Ponadto ten trunek jest dość mocno gazowany oraz powoduje lekkie rozgrzanie alkoholowe, które nie dziwi biorąc pod uwagę zawartość procentów 6,5.

Bottle from Lidl poured into glass tankard. Beautiful dark amber color. Large head diminishing at medium speed. Strong aroma of malt. Taste is quite bitter. Very good ale.

pomko (200) - UKRAINE - JUL 11, 2014
Light cloudy deep amber colour with low creamy head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt and barley. Taste of mild spicy hops, malt, strong alcohol, sour milk, orange juice and grass. Easy to drink, but not as nice as expected

Derbeth (367) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber colour, quickly diminishing head, virtually no lacing. Aroma is wood, caramel, alcohol, a bit of prune. Medium bitterness. Full body, fizzy carbonation. Quite similar to Belgian strong ales. Quite ok.

Clear, amber colour with white frothy head. Aroma of malt and little citrus. Low bitterness, full body. Taste is malty but unfortunately little sour. Bitter finish with hints of alcohol. Low drinkable.
