yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. An unclear, dark amber beer with a finger-thick, off-white to beige head. Caramel and sugary dried fruits on the nose, maybe not sounding too good, which it is, but it is a bit boring. The flavor has a meaty intro, with caramel, raisins and some alcohol following. Warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a lasting dried fruits finish. A quite nice one, and though it might seem from my rating that I enjoyed aroma and flavor equally, I didn’t. The aroma is sort of boring or one dimensional, the flavor is more complex and in fact really good. Anyway, a nice beer. 110204

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle at post Borefts BF 09 tasting. Red amber, thin beige head. Sweet amber malt in aroma, not sure I like the oak in it. Too woody for me. bit too oaky, sweet, some hop on end.

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle at a tasting, thanks to Paul. Pours hazy, purple-brown with a medium, off-white head. Ripe fruits and heavy malts on the nose, some Annie’s mac n’ cheese. Extremely sweet, lots of baked beans (which I love!) And toffee, some ripe fruits, mild booze. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Decent warm finish, some more baked beans, toffee, brown sugar, some vanilla. Tons of sugar. Good stuff.

Koelschtrinker (12665) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 2, 2011
Süß-malziger Antrunk, der ausgewogener als bei der Series 1 ist. Dennoch zu süß, auch hier sind die Holznoten stark. Dunkelmalziger aber sehr süßer Antrunk, wenig Hopfen, der Alkohol ist erkennbar. Etwas schokoladig. 8/11/11/12/8/11

bhensonb (12460) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Bomber from Oak Tree. Pours hazy dark ruddy amber with no real head. Aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, a little hop, and arguably vanilla and oak. Med plus body. It starts sweet, moves towards dark fruit, shifts to oaky astringency. The finish is fairly dry and oaky, though the sugar sort of hangs around. Pretty good stuff.
