larsga (6213) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2007
Big light brown head. Deep red-brown head. Softly wooden metallic aroma of malts with a dark fruity background and notes of tea. Dry tea and malts taste with metallic smoky notes. Slightly thin-bodied. Dry powdery metallic aftertaste. Nice, but not major. (0.5l bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm.)

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - SEP 13, 2007
Appearance: amber mahogany color. Medium head and persistency, ivory color. Flavor: toasty barleys, nutty, candy and intensive hoppy (goldings). Fruity like peach, pink grapefruits and ripe red apple. Light aniseed touch and some liquory similar to whisky. Flavor: sweet start of grains, very nice nutty and candy. Intensive dryness and floral hoppy finish. Sweet-fruitiness of almonds, tangerines and nuts; dry-fruitiness of stone peach and grapefruits. Some liquory. Palate: light to medium body, silky texture. Light to medium carbonation. Not complex, persistent dryness, nice nutty, good balanced.

rw4244 (132) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2007
Bottle 50cl. Poured a dark copper, quite carbonated, with a decent off white head. Slightly sweet caramel/toffee aroma complements hoppiness. Strong malty flavour, hints of toffee apple. Quite woody. Lasting bitter finish. Medium body. Tasty bitter, though perhaps a little too much sourness in the aftertaste.

Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strongish head. The aroma is deeply caramel and quite dry, the flavour is toffee and fudge with a very bitter finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pours amber with a firm off-white head that leaves good lacing on the glass. Strongly carbonated. Excellent toffee malt aroma. Flavour starts malty but moves to a lingering bitter finish. Not bad but could do with being a little less carbonated and a little more complex.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2007
Copper coloured with a firm, near white head. Aroma was toffeeish. Flavour was similarly of sweet caramel with a redeeming dry finish. Ok.

Amber with an off white head. Marmalade malt aroma, very sweet. Taste is toasty malt with a bit of fruitiness. slightly peachy perhaps. Gentle bitterness but aggressively carbonated.

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2007
Strong malty nose. Pours deep amber with a firm beige head. Flavour is malty and sweet at first but develops into a long bitter finish. Not bad, not amazing.
