Bendrixian (1342) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2015
Clear reddish colour. Toast and malted barley aroma. More of the same on the palate with a bit more sweetness and corn mash than expected. Nothing special

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2015
#300 rating. Poured from a large bottle. Appearance is a deep copper color with white head. Aroma is toffee, raisin, and orange. Palate is medium. Taste is nice toffee and malt biscuit flavors, with a tinge of raisins like a port, maybe a hint of chocolate. Pretty good, something different.

jamaty (1335) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Marrón oscura, ligeramente rojiza. Escasa espuma ocre, pero duradera. Aroma a cacao con algo de fruta roja. Gran cuerpo con buena cremosidad y un justo tono, bastante presente, de carbonatacion. Y sabor excelente con una mezcla ideal de dulce malta y amargor marcado con recuerdos de café y chocolate (postgusto evidente). Excelente.
