DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle, opened to share with my in-laws. Aggressively carbonated gassy head atop a golden amber body. Musty caramel aroma, not a good start. Musty caramel apple flavour. This bottle is off. Boo.

BeerParker (9) - DENMARK - SEP 29, 2013 does not count
Got this bottle from France (0,75). And I am very surprised. Most tasty beer I tasted in years. Very roasty taste with dried fruits. Malty and long taste. I had this in my mouth for hours.
