I overkant søt. Litt lite skum. Fyldig. Litt for mye karamellpreg etter min smak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BelgiskOlklub (1083) - Viby J, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2017
Copper brown body and off-white creamy head. Aroma of dry fruits, alcohol and pine. The taste is medium bitter and medium to heavy sweet. Not that well balanced. Oily texture.

Mr_Pink_152 (5109) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle from crafty bottle, Lincoln. Deep chestnut brown colour with a thin off white head. Stewed fruity aroma with big malts. Taste light bittersweet to mid sweet finish. Rich body.

yngwie (17078) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle, 75cl corked. A hazy brown beer with a dense beige head. The aroma is a nice blend of red sour berries, caramel, some honey, flowers, grass and some cellar. It’s full bodied, with some warmth and a pleasant carbonation level. Caramel, berries, cellar, honey, orange flowers and a grassy touch. Lasting finish. A bit messy this one, but it’s sure interesting in many ways. 170204

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Bottled. Deep amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, some sweet malts and mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is sweet malts, some honey, mild wood as well as some slight grains, caramel and mild bitterness to it. Quite balanced.

FatPhil (16382) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2016
750ml bottle (Hops Vaike Rosa, Tallinn)
Malty aroma,sweet, a touch nutty. Taste also nutty. There is some kinda alcohol in here, but it’s not totally out of whack. Lots of nuts, lots of bitterness, lots of booze. Woh, that’s a heady heavy brew.

suurjuust (3569) - ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2016
750ml bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Dark brown beer, small off-white head. Nose is malty, roast and toasty notes, some fruit, caramel. Flavor is thinnish, malty, caramel, almost a rye acidity, mild bitterness, sweetness. Nutty finish, dry, wood, some toasty notes. Kinda odd.
