Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2011
En ESB/strong ale på 6,6%. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med skum som bildar fina gardiner. En maltbomb? Ja, men det finns plats för humlen också. Doft av läder, gamla möbler, söt tobak, wienerbröd, toffee och humle. Smaken är fyllig, men alkoholen slår igen, tobak, sötlimpa, brödkryddor typ anis, torkad frukt och en ordentlig efterbeska som ligger kvar länge. Välbalanserad alkoholstyrkan till trots.

joe19612 (2145) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a copper colour with a thin white head. A very malty aroma, with traces of toffee and hops as well. The taste is of malt more than anything else, but also had toffee, hops, a nutty quality, and a slight spiciness.

500ml bottle from Royal Liquors poured into a Chimay glass. Pours a very light brown/dark red color with a good bit of frothy off-white head. Aroma is of sweet malt. Caramel and fermented citrus fruits. Slight hop spicyness is hiding in there too. Taste is lightly bitter and lightly sweet. Slight caramel taste along with a stronger taste of fruit. Medium bodied with a thick sticky texture, fizzy carbonation and a average length finish. Overall, its not too bad. Nothing I would search out again but at 4 bucks a bottle it is drinkable.
