austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

Diar (121) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2008
(bottle, 50cl) An amber, red ale with golden foam which formed a thin, creamy layer. Fresh, fruity aroma with a clear scent of melon (!). Full palate and very good taste with decent bitterness, well balanced roasted tone and again that melon. I liked this beer.

mybestfriend (263) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2008
Bottle - 2008 version. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is mostly about the malts - lots of caramel/fudge, some dried fruits and a hint of warming spices. Flavour begins with roasted malty notes and a little sweetness . lots of caramel/fudge and some citrus fruit. Then the hops kicks in with a good amount of bitterness - you can feel the cascade - with notes of grapefruit zest. The finish is roasted and bitter.
