Dfonorow (1707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Pour is dark amber with a quickly disappearing head. Light caramel malts with some roast on the nose. Flavor is similar but with a slight sour/bitterness in the finish. A little spicy, strange.

socialbeer (108) - SPAIN - JAN 26, 2013
Botella. Color marron oscuro, espuma poco persistente, carbonatacion baja. Aroma a caramelo y dulce de leche, tambien a azucar quemado y algo licoroso. En boca es dulce, y alcoholica pero bien equilibrada acabando con un amargor notable.

Vells (921) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 18, 2013
Hazy nutbrown to reddish with medium beige head, that turns into decent stable layer. Aroma.. intense bready, bonbon, bit hoppy and moderate malty. Yeasty. Sweet with bit of sourness. Decent brew, for me it was something interesting that I would like to repeat. Good price/performance
