lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
375 ml bottle. Golden wax. Pours a dark hazy amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity malts, berries, gooseberry bush, wood and caramel. Rich flavour of toasted malts, herbs, tequila, sweet caramel, wood, rum, raisin, some alcohol and red berries. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Very complex.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a muddy orange with creamy off white head. Immediate aroma of cherries, red grapes, oak, figs, caramel. Off the Richter. Flavours are more centered around the oak, lots of toffee, vanilla, rum, raisins and dark fruits. Lingering chewy sweetness. Lots of oak in this one, but it’s very good.

Niall73 (2417) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Aroma is lovely - sweet dark fruit - dates, figs boozy raisins and rum, touch of grass too. Medium to full body, mild carbonation. The sweet rummy fruitiness switches gear towards boozy woody dryness in a flash. It might leave a touch dry, but its a treat.

thewolf (11875) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours light hazy dark chestnut with a medium, staying, super-creamy yellowish head. Aroma has fat caramel, red wine, oak, raisins, apple, Calvados. Low carbonation, fine oily and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has fine malts, good caramel and raisins, light chocolate, red wine, a bit of port, softly vinious and warming. Nice.

c0fein (471) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2014
375ml bottle from Saveur Biere

Aroma promises good with its intensity. Deep brown look with a smooth beige foam. Good versatile mouth-filling taste. Small sourness, dryness and alcohol at mouth-feel. I like.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber/brown with off white head. Some fusels in the aroma although not hot, petrol, rubber, plastic, some chocolate and biscuit, also floral and citrusy. Taste of resin, plastic, raisins, prunes flowers, biscuit, toffee, chemicals like rubber, caramel after taste. Slightly sweet/sticky, thin and bitter almost tangy. Has some wine like qualities and I liked it at first but ultimately it seems like a bit of a mess. There’s far too much going on and it’s a little all over the place. Too many aspects clash for me

jonnyguns (1104) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a murky amber with minimal head. Nose is heavy oak, vanilla, and light fruit smell. Taste is very easy drinking considering it’s 11%. Dark fruits, oak, vanilla and sweet mango. Definitely got better as it warmed up. Could do with some ageing.
