mansquito (3392) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($5.95): Pours murky brown with a beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, a bit of hops and some yeast. Taste is a little sweet, with some earth. Mostly very malty. Kind of like a brown ale mixed with an ESB in my opinion. Hardly a strong ale though. Nice though.

ogivlado (5721) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, pleasant caramel hoppy/fruity nose. Sweet malty, pleasant fruity hoppy and mild caramel taste with notes of grapefruit in the finish. Pleasant but maybe a bit to intensive hoppy notes.

dinkle50 (972) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Super carbonated. Deep red pour with a thick off white head. Aroma is very light. Hint of grain. Taste is full of barley. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. This beer is so carbonated that the taste is little lost.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Bottle. Pours a copper-red with two fingers of rocky, coarse tan head. Decent retention and significant lacing. Aroma is hoppy, malty, caramel, toffee. Flavor mildly hoppy up front, fading immediately into strong malt tones, nutty, peated malt, caramel, toffee, slightly bitter finish. Soft carbonation and medium body. A very malty beer, not sure what makes it a strong ale though. A pretty good winter brew.

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2013
Bärnstensfärgad öl med gulvitt livligt skum. Doft av karamell, kavrin och en aning av citrus. Humlen är mer påtaglig i smaken tillsamans med en lätt kryddighet.

Fatehunter (1216) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Two fingers of tan head on a copper colored body. The smell is candy, wet grain and lemon. The taste is a moderate bitter and malt mix. A little unbalanced. The sweetness comes through stronger beginning to middle with dry bitter ending. Moderate carbonation and medium body with a slight sticky feeling. An enjoyable drink.

Kronebryg (1054) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2012

Iphonephan (3268) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at rustico Arlington. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head leaving heavy lacing. Crisp hop aroma. Toffee notes softening an intense hop bitterness. Tasty.

obguthr (3836) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Wood and nut nose. Clear copper, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Burned toast with walnut accents. Walnuts linger on the palate and provide a pleasant bitterness. Nice, but doesn’t excite very much.

mzaar (1614) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad öl, med ett massivt och långvarigt skum. Ser oerhört snyggt ut. Doftar av aprikos, knäck och mörk sirap. Samma går igen i smaken, upptill några brända toner.
