dnstone (2736) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Wonderful hop aroma intertwined with roasty-sweet duble. Roasty-earth hop flavor with a hint of sweetness, subtle strong roasty finish that lingers. Nice complexity Lighter mouthfeel with an underlying hop-pine citrus. Deep amber-brown-orane color. Thin white head.

Tap@ de achelse kluis. Ziet er goed uit , bruin van kleur met een mooie kraag. Aroma is zwak mout en zoete snoepjes . Smaak idem maar helaas ook behoorlijk waterig. Niet heel goed.

Dimmigt mrk mahognybrun med fast mrkbeigt skum. Doftar karamell och stmalt, lite honung. Smaken verraskande tunn, ganska syrlig, men toff, romrussin och irish coffe dominerar. Eftersmaken lng, lite brnd karamell och stma, men ven hr ganska tunn. Tyvrr var den ngot vermogen (utgngsdatum 2/2/16).

mjakopa (266) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - SEP 5, 2015
Pours a dark brown amber with medium to low head, but quite persistend. Aroma is caramel, sweet, and slightly fruity. Taste is sweet with more caramel, hints of darker fruit and some maltyness. A very balanced and enjoyable brown.

KoNrRiI (1260) - rhus, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2015
0.33 bottle. Brown color with a reddish tinge and a large, white head leaving a good lacing. Aroma of dark malts, dark fruits, metal, and perhaps some vanilla. Taste is also malty, somewhat dry, sweet, and spicy. Light to medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long at most, a little sourer, but also more balanced. Overall not a bad beer but also nothing especially good.
