thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light brown orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild vinous hop aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous dough hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

hayduke (4926) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 15, 2015
On tap at the brewpub in Portland. Pour was amber gold with with a dingy white head. Nose of rich caramel malts and fruit. Medium plus body. Flavor is sweet caramel malts, dark ripe fruit, and floral hops. Finishes with some alcohol burns Seems like it could use some additional aged to smooth out.

Fairly heavy on the caramel, some dried fruit and quite complex. Very nice, perhaps a bit on the sweet side.

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2015
22 oz bottle. At the Kerho, Tampere, Finland. 2012 vintage.
Clear amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet sugary malty aroma. Strong maltiness indeed. Sweet malty flavour with dried fruits and some alcohol notes. Easy for a such heavy brew.
