larsga (7154) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2012
Huge beige head keeps rising, eventually growing a foam hat out of the glass. Clear amber body with strong carbonation. Earthy dusty burnt caramel aroma with milky peas notes. Dry-sweet roasty wooden earthy taste with notes of burnt peas. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry earthy licorice and burnt caramel aftertaste with wooden milky notes. Unusual, vivid and clear, and highly drinkable, with lots of flavour. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget Nordstan, Göteborg.)

Theydon_Bois (16227) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Ronny, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting "After Party", Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Clear dark amber with a good sized light beige head that retains well. Nose is biscuit malt, caramel, light hop presence, vanilla. Taste comprises caramac bar, woody tinges, bsicuit malt, more vanilla, bitter orange notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok stuff, not sure the style category is quite right here, not quite strong enough IMHO!

hirigalzkar (2789) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Draught @ Glenfiddich Warehouse. The use of the american cascade hops makes this (otherwise) classic English Strong Ale a bit different. Quite fresh and drinkable.
