muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 500 ml bottle from Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2008) sampled at cellar temperature from a Samuel Smiths pint glass. A rugged, persistent off-white big-bubbled head crowns this translucent dark bronze/maple beauty, leaving thick lacing as it quite slowly disappears....interesting and strange aroma of caramel, vanilla, herbal/piney notes and some odd sweaty characteristics, overall more odd than anything, not unpleasant but not necessarily inviting either....smooth, full and rich body, nice malt extraction, a bit of smokiness and graininess towards the finish, tastes just a bit over the hill which wouldn’t be surprising really, hops are quite muted and dry, some piney/resinous notes show up with a bit of warmth....carbonation rather low and natural. Solid; I wish I could find an ESB or ESA this good available where I am for less than the $6 this sucker cost.

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs. Mörk Bärnstensfärgad vätska med ljust skum. Humlerik doft med en känsla av vanilj. Kraftig maltig smak med mycket humle och stor beska. Mycke smakrik och god!

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2014
Aroma is pretty deep and nutty malts and a slight aura from dark berries. The taste is juicy malts and not that sweet because they have used the hops quite perfect in this one. It also has a quite strong bitterness that hangs on for quite a while. It´s a perfect Christmas dinner brew.

fyb (8) - SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2014 does not count
Clear copper-brown, long lasting, foamy, off-white head, leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is grape, citrus, some spices and a hint of roasted malts. Taste is nutty malts, caramel, slightly roasted with some spices and hoppy notes that could be compared to the likes of an old/tired IPA. Medium body, medium carbonation, dry finish with some bitterness.

metalspice (137) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2014
Klar mørk mahogni farget med lavt beige skum. Kraftig duft med bitre sitrustoner sammen ristet malt. Smaken er en kombinasjon av fruktig bitterhet og tørre toner av brød og kaffe. Denne liker vi!
