Juks (2597) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2018 330ml bottle. Pours clear dark amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is nutty, molasses, caramelly, malty. Taste is sweet, nutty, malty, molasses, caramelly. Some alcohol warming in aftertaste. Medium body, soft carbonation. Drinkable brew, too sweet

sharky2kx (119) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2018 Pours a deep, deep red with a brown tinge. The head is white and frothy and dissipates at a moderate rate. Nose is malty, sweet and nutty. Hard to pick up at first but it opens up in the glass. There's a light alcoholic note but nothing overpowering. Palate is moderate with a satisfying thickness. Creamy carbonation. Taste is again full on malt with tannin-like hops. It gives a maple sort of flavour which balances the bitterness nicely.

yaff (202) - la fontalaye, FRANCE - NOV 16, 2018
à la maison. Nez sucré , alcoolisé , robe sombre mais pas opaque. En bouche cette bière se montre relativement sobre et ne développant que légèrement son côté pain d'épices , manque un peu de force et de longueur pour être une très bonne bière.

Patersoi (224) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2018
Aroma - malt. Deep deep ruby coloured pour with cream head. Lots of light malt in the flavour. Overpowering any subtlety. Reasonable length finish with some oaky vanilla and sweet malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GoDarkOrGoHome (391) - Pontypool, WALES - NOV 8, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2018 Malty, rich and sweet. Caramel, toffee, dried fruit and toasted malt. Can see this being too sweet for many palates but this went down very well for me

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2018 Tostada y ligera al trago. Ligeramente dulce, pero no en exceso. Poca espuma. Color oscuro.

caketm (890) - Czestochowa, POLAND - NOV 2, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2018 Butelka 0,33 litra zakupiona w Bierland - kraina 1000 piw. Barwa ciemnego bursztynu, klarowna. Bardzo uboga, jasnobeżowa piana, która szybko opada. Zapach nawet złożony. Pachnie ciastem, likierem, rodzynkami, czerwonymi owocami, ciemnym chlebem i generalnie jest słodko, karmelowo. W smaku również dominuje słodycz i karmel. Poza tym wiśnie i ciasteczka zalane likierem. Wyczuwalna umiarkowana goryczka. Całkiem sporo ciała i dosyć niskie wysycenie 🍻

brandon1989 (767) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2018
Pours a dark amber color with a thick cream colored head. The aroma is light roasted barley malts and brown bread. The flavor is similar to the aroma with some alcohol presence.

3.8
kraddel (10610) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 22, 2018
Pours brown, dark and unclear. Rather small, cream-on-coffee colored head. Smell is malty, caramel. Creamy, balanced. Taste is malty, caramelly, full. Complex, mild chocolate. Subtile notes of bitterness. Very nice wee heavy! Especially the bready, caramelly, but extremely balanced finish is great.

3.3
floydslip (472) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2018
Nice looking chestnut colored beer with a medium foamy light beige head. Semi-sweet nose of almonds, sassafras, and light caramel. Flavor is similar with hazelnut, toffee, and sweet vanilla. A little sweet for my taste, but full of flavor.
