BeerViking (2316) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Cask at London Drinker 2014, aroma is candy and a touch of treacle. The palate is overwhelmingly sweet, with a little coffee and a faint bitterness lurking below. More like a weird alcopop - I gave most of it back to be poured away.

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 15, 2014
Port St. Beer House, Manchester 22 Jan 13. Så vidt gjennomskinnelig ultradyprød. Bra skum med litt farge. Forsiktig røstet aroma. Sjokoladesmak med innslag av søt vanilje.

Phyrexian (5) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2014 does not count
Forte aroma lattico, ma non molto altro. L’aspetto è buono, birra molto scura, schiuma compatta e aderente, un po’ irregolare. Se all’olfatto sembrava un abirra infettata in bocca è ancora peggio: aspra e con un corpo molto scarso nonostante i 6 gradi alcolici. Per nulla bilanciata, i malti tostati faticano a farsi sentire attraverso l’acido imperante. In generale mi ha molto deluso, e non ho trovato nessuna nota di caffè che il nome poteva suggerire.

Hanoi (363) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle: Nose is lactose, slight coffee, very slight leather slight dust; surprisingly muted. Taste, milk, sugars, latte, a little coffee. Mouthfeel a little thin. It’s a perfectly nice example, but surprisingly muted for something from SWB.
