Franzen (273) - SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2014
Caramel, chocolatey aroma, bit nutty faint resin. Clear ruby with beige head. Prelude is a bit sweet and nutty and pretty soon overcome with bit bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation oily texture. Really good strong ale, one of my favourites

Brown color with a tan-ish head. Aroma and taste both had rich caramel malt characteristics along with oak and vanilla. A bit of sweet toffee as well. I really liked this.

Medium dark brown / ruby with large tan head. Roasty malt aroma with a hind if woody oak. Plenty of roasty sweet malt flavor with toffee and some goal character. Nice coating mouthfeel. Woody hoppy finish. Long pleasant bitterness lingers.

wabahoye (37) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Deep red color, minimal off white head. Aroma excellent. Lots of hops and roasty malts Taste is superb with strong malt backbone touch of coffee and, of course a nice hint of oak. Deliberate bitterness that is well balanced. Excellent beer.

Beese (1462) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle at the Euston Tap, London on 2 May. Poured a clear copper colour, with a dense off-white head. Powerful aroma of red currants, citrus hops and pine trees. Strong flavours vying for attention; dry, bitter grassy hops mixed with toasted malt and caramel. Finish is full and rounded; spicy hops, toffee and dry grain. Not exactly balanced, but I don’t think that was the point.
