The_Osprey (2757) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell. Thanks to Leighton! Hazy orange, cloudy, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is tangerine, sweet caramel, musty and earthy. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste has more sweet caramel, toffee apple, no real bitterness to it. Very sweet - too sweet to drink a lot of it - but nice in small amounts.

Scopey (8250) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle at the Cadís 10 yr Shindig. Thanks Leighton! It pours deep orange-amber with a small beige head. The nose is soft, doughy, orange sponge cake, caramel, stewed orange and candy. The taste is bitter-sweet, juicy, caramel, stewed orange, muffin, tangerine, candied fruits, booze and brioche with a sweet finish. Full body and fine carbonation. A bit too sweet, but overall not bad.

j12601 (7350) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle that I took to Jamesí for the multi-K tasting. Pours a hazed ruby amber with a large beige tan head. Sweet grainy musk on the nose, caramel and sweet toffee. Grainy and sweet into the finish. Decent enough, but super malty and a touch too sweet for me.

alexsdad06 (6550) - Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2014
22 oz. bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange/dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, candied dark fruits, dates, herbal hops, some bitterness, alcohol heat, boozy, this one needed some time and I should have shared it with others, because it was hard to finish alone.

bb (7193) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 9, 2014

bbbeer (592) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Orangy color with medium small white head. Aroma citrus and caramel malt. Full body, syrupy mouthfeel and lots of alcohol. Flavors sweet citrus, some esters, some malt. I guess the flavors arenít bad in and of themselves but itís just too sticky sweet and boozy to enjoy.

blipp (6615) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a white head. Bitter floral and earthy hops, sweet malts, light citrus, and faint fruity notes. A bit too boozy, but otherwise enjoyable.

halfonit (1209) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours a nice murky amber color with a white head. Aroma is of malts, figs, prunes, slight booze, and spices. Nice and heavy palate, sweeter. Flavors include malts, black cherries, raisins, prunes, and some boozyness. Leaves a sweeter finish. My bottle still seemed a little hot. Perhaps aging it for 6 months or so might make it a little bit more enjoyable.
