Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2015
500ml bottle from Systembolaget Kiruna, via djoeye. Crystal clear golden body, stable off-white head leaving crocheted lacing down the glass. Mixed aroma of dried fruits and brown malts. Flavoured with brown malts, almond, and herbal hops. Malt-fruity endnotes. Medium bodied. Clean in the mouth. Pleasant (shared with Finn, Tromsø 11.02.2015).

Sammy (11251) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2008
Doesn’t look like much, laggerish light after initial foam.Somewhat cheesy aroma. The taste is somehwhat hoppy and refreshing. A natural casklike carbonation. Bit of light lemonlime aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel.

hopscotch (10658) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle... Clear dark-orange ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma is full of all kinds of malty, fruity, doughy goodness - chocolate chips, white cake batter, strawberry jam (Jeff hit it right on the nose with that description), dried apricot, sugar cookie and rumors of cinnamon and resin. Full-bodied and nearly chewy with lively carbonation. The flavor offers sweet, malty notes of white cake batter, graham and cookie dough accentuated and kept in check by moderate peppery bitterness. Finishes crisp and bittersweet with a gentle kiss of acidity. Very nice.

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pours a dark maroon body with an almost non-existent tan head. Sweet fairly dark malty aroma with hints of red licorice, cherries, and other red fruits. Low carbonated, tangy, slightly bitter, red fruity, medium malty body. Sort of sour, sweet, and brown malty finish. Not as strong of flavor as most English Strong Ale.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2009
It is beautiful, dark, red-brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, fruit, caramel, citrus and peach. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, licorice, fruit, spruce, citrus and caramel. The finish is very long. It is a complex and interesting beer.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Tap at Churchkey. Pours a clear red amber topped by a medium tan head leaving admirable yellowish sheets of lace. Nose is at first mild cheesy hops. Taste is straightforward bitter and astringent with small red fruits and a lot of tannic tea character. Over slatted grain feel. Too astringent. Hop presence is older and cheesy. Feels like a DIPA gone wrong. Sweaty and blander taste. Stinging, sharp carbonation. Mild paper character.

jercraigs (9877) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2007
Bottle @ Cole’s Christmas Tasting 2007. Mahogany brown body with a small beige head. Odd aroma, light fruit notes and tangy malt character. (6+) Similar fruit and malt in the flavour, light caramel notes. Average palate. Not unpleasant but fairly unremarkable.
