500ml bottle (Ales by Mail)
Rich amber, small tight beige head. Nice resiny aroma, plenty of esters, and loads of caramelly malts. Fullish sweetish palate, pleasant carbonation sometimes a little high. Quirky in the mouth, not quite what I expected from the aroma. Plenty of caramel, some resiny herbal bitterness, later some earthier aspects and pencil shavings. Finish has a low throb of bitterness. Decent strong ale, but I’d like the carbonation a bit lower.

Cask at Christian Firtal. Dark amber with a lasting, creamy off-white head. Malty aroma of toffee and breadcrust, with a fruity touch. Malty sweet flavour with dried fruit. Quite a lot of alcohol showing. Firm bitter finish

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
Gravity at the Grape and Grain Spring Beer Festival 2011. It pours amber with low carbonation and a thin off-white head. The nose is wood, dark fruit and berries and caramel. The taste is oak, varnish, vanilla, red berries, apricot, lemon peel and parma violets, with a boozy, wood finish. Decent old-style strong ale.

DSG (12189) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 18, 2012
[5/12/12] Cask at Charlie’s Bar in Copenhagen. Clear amber. Earthy hops aroma with some somewhat toasty malt. Flavor has some mellow maltiness, a bit bready and toasty, with a bit of sweetness at first, but quickly turns bitter and hoppy, earthy and citric, to create a mouth-drying finish. Silky mouthfeel. Very nice.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2011
Cask @ Charlies Bar, Cph.
Clear nutty amber with a small, nice, staying, creamy, yellowish head. Mild fat aroma, light berries and grass, good caramel. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very nice, nuts, biscuits, dark chocolate and caramel. Light toasted, some tartish liqourice and berries. Reminds me of a very dry Fullers 1845. Lovely.

JorisPPattyn (9530) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
Yellow-cream head over hazy amber beer with a mossy sheen. Rainwater, toffee, caramel, restsugars suggested in the nose. Bitter-vegetable, underlying caramel. Light to medium bodied, feels quite carbonated. Average.
