500ml brown bottle. Pours coppery-orange, clear. Nice long lasting off white cap, good creaminess and lacing. Malty nose, dark bread and a bit of choclate malt. Taste has some caramel, grain, mild chocolate, roasted and toasted malt. Dry, trace of late hops with low bitterness. Mild toffee and some choclate in the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A bit more robust than expected, but pretty enjoyable.

En fin øl med en masse smag. Klassisk ølsmag, altså en smag af maltsødme og let humlet. LazyPyro (1583) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2016
500ml bottle. Dark chestnut brown colour with a smooth off-white head. Aroma is malts, perhaps very gently roasted, caramel, fruit, hints of spices. Taste of slightly sweet/fruity malts, faintly bitter finish. Smooth. Not much to talk about with this one. ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Dark amber red with a very thin head. Not too different from the cask, with an older ale style, some sweetness, but not high on flavour.

Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Clear amber coloured, minimal off-white head, caramel and dark fruits in the nose. Sweet malty, caramel, dried fruits and touch of metal with sugary finish. Too sweet and not so good. lokis333 (573) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - OCT 7, 2015
Clear dark chestnut color with caramle dark foam. Aroma is bit spicy, seems like it was aged bit alcohol aromas and reminds bit of nut oil. Palete is medium and bit watery. Tasted of nut oil, quite nice had this bitter aftertaste. Over all nice beer, quite enjoyable. klm1 (1844) - Bled/SF, - SEP 28, 2015
