hohops (553) - Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle. Appearance- dark ruby, a big foamy beige head, clear despite being dark. Aroma- malts, raisin, hint of vanilla, caramel, hints of chocolate, hoppy. Taste- fairly malty, brown bread, toffee chocolatey undertones, smooth mouthfeel, some hop bitterness in the finish. Tasty.

bartlebier (2683) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2015
500ml medicine bottle bb04/2016, D&M Waitrose haul, ta. Amber oak and pinkish hued pour, healthy organic foam. Mild aromas of damp toast, chestnut, bitter soil, flowery honey. Upon first sips brings to mind a German Alt, particularly Schumacher, before developing a more intense natural hop bitterness on a lighter body, whilst remaining well rounded and near-creamy smooth. Just enough malt sweetness to balance the advertised bitters - does what it says with elegance and reticence, traditional values to be respected in the globalising craft&crafty world.

hub66 (263) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 19, 2015
couleur brun-rouge; petite mousse blanc-crème; arômes et goût maltés, de fruits rouges, d’épices et de résine; bon équilibre douceur-amertume

AshtonMcCobb (4079) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle from Oddbins. Appearance - deep chestnut with orange chinks. Nose - hobnobs. Some red fruits. Taste - biscuit and dried orange. Nuts again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet crunchy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - never going to be a 4 but good for the ABV.

asimeow (224) - Sandsli, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2015
0,5l bottle. Dark, amber, medium caramel head. Aroma is ripe fruits, yeast, coffee, almost like some Xmas ales. Very smooth on the palate. Really pleasantly and softly carbonated. Fruity, smooth flavour. Pruny. Pleasant. Not what I had expected, but a nice bitter nonetheless.

TedE (551) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2015
500 ml bottle poured into pint glass at room temperature. Rich malt nose with a slight sour note. Deep red/ brown beer with thick creamy off-white head. No carbonation. Medium body, oily texture. Taste is surprisingly hoppy with smoky caramel malt following. The hoppy bitterness lingers for ages. Great bitter, balanced and moreish.
