yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle, at Risras. It pours a clear, dark amber body under a dense, finger-thick, beige head. The aroma has toffee, prunes and some dark sugar, pleasant but a bit boring. It’s soft on the palate, semi dry and full-bodied, with flavors of toffee, figs and prunes dominating the flavour. Some bitterness that lasts for a good time. Dried fruits too in the finish. A quite pleasant one, but there’s nothing extraordinary going on. 121111

2014.06 - ’bier van de maand’-proeverij ten huize Klaas - wordt bij deze afgevinkt - wat er me het meest van bijstaat : de geur van toffee (Macintosh) en caramel

Bottle courtesy of Kermis. Poured a clear medium amber with a think white head and a little broken lace. The aroma is big yeast, zesty sweet red berry fruit. The flavour is strong sweet with a soft sweet fruit dry light aspirin palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. I’ve tasted worse!

Icedwarf (262) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Licht rood bruin bier met minimale schuimkraag. Smaak is apart, licht zuur, rookachtig en bittere chokolade. Blijft redelijk lang hangen.

JulienHuxley (2939) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear red brown pour with thin white head. Aroma of cherries, light earthy notes, cinnamon. Taste is sweet, very light tartness, alcohol is well hidden, kind of fruity with a spicy finish, earthy aftertaste. Palate is med bodied, light carbonation.

Mothroy (69) - - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Chestnut brown with a thin white head. Fresh, crisp, bitter burnt caramel aroma. Palate is very much like an English ale with the slight sweetness being overtaken by an assertive hoppiness. The background flavour is of burnt caramel which blends nicely with the hops. Robust ale.

ClubGonzo (3923) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Nose is sweet caramel, candi sugars, cellar must and hints of alcohol. A bit strange. Taste is sweet syrupy caramel malt tones, hints of grass and not much else. Despite the apparent simplicity it actually kinda works. Medium body, lively carbonation. Fair enough, but far from great.
