Crazy amount of flavor in this complex beer. Overwhelms the palate of this newbie. Sweet, yet smokey. Hop aroma from the very beginning, yet you dont get the hops in the taste until near the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GhostS (185) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - FEB 18, 2017
Aroma - pleasant and complex, predominantly with caramelized malt, caramel, toffee, chocolate with milk and nuts, honey, some dried fruits, a bit of yeasts. Taste - identical with aroma, with some fresh grounded grains and a log and pleasant bitterness. Very good!

Can from beer52 beer club. Fabulous beer, dark and malty and you can taste the caramel in there. Not as hoppy as I was expecting to find but great nonetheless. Very strong, you know youve had a tin of this!

BeardedAvenger (488) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Can from Wine Rack, Burpham. The EU version. Hops and malts, slightly pungent - not as strong an aroma as I was expecting. A medium chestnut. Light beige head, creamy but it soon recedes. Bitter, but the hops are never over the top. Medium bodied. Oily. A lot of carbonation going on there. Long but restrained finish. I like that warming sensation you get from a beer of this ABV but not really getting much of that. I like it but this mutha is not as up in my face as I was expecting.

Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2017
This beer is quite hoppy; hoppy in a way that kind of distracts from what else is going on with it. Its good, but its got a dry finish thats almost overstated.

Szopeen (439) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Stone Berlin, puszka, data do 01.04.2017 r. Barwa bursztynowa, zmętnienie dość spore, bardzo ładna, trwała piana, zdobiąca szkło. W aromacie dominuje mid, gdzieś w tle słody, karmel, kwiaty. W smaku bardzo podobnie, jest dość słodko, wszystko kontrowane wysoką goryczką. Bez szału.

Dorkenstein (484) - - FEB 10, 2017
Aromas of caramel, toffee, slight pine and lemon citrus. Taste is as it smells: caramel, toffee, lemon. Although, a stronger grapefruit rind presence builds as it travels down the tongue; and pine notes appear in the finish and after taste as well.

maekchu (3670) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2017
Somehow Ive never rated this one, though Ive had it several times over the past 15 years or so. Anyway, Heavy malty nose, medium roast, herbs, berries, tree bark, and light smoke. Dark amber/brown color, with a large rocky head and very thick, sticky lace. Roast malt, tangy and piney, caramel, quite herbal, tiny bit of smoke, and moderate back-end bitterness. Medium body. Very tasty.
