Bottle. Bronze and very clear. Strong alcohol presence from the start but still easy to drink. Full bodied and assertive but not to the point that it puts you off drinking it. One the brewery should be proud off.

SaintMatty (7555) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2013
750ml Bottle - Golden with a foamy white head. Yeast, spice, lemon and tea in the aroma. Spice, banana, lemon and coriander all feature in the taste. Easy to drink for its strength.

AdamChandler (5182) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 8, 2013
golden reddish / yellow pour. smells very candy like with bready yeastiness. Tastes boozy and sweet. Not smooth or refined, just a booze bomb with oak and high malt content.

4.2
DerWeg (1727) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 ORIGINAL AUG 2013 RATE - Wow! The gold is hazy with creamy white head. Aroma is deep with fruit and spicy candy. Taste rolls out sweet spice and bubblegum phenolics, ripe banana, sweet juicy apple and pear and a middle and finish of fine bitterness. The concealed alcohol rounds the package rather than adding sharpness, very well done. Bottle from the LCBO. ADDITIONAL NOV 2016 RATE NOTES - Well it’s actually still good 4 years on, has gingerbread, spice, vanilla and the apple-pear fruit is there, milder banana and hops, and there’s dry herb and wild honey notes and hints of lemon. So this will be the last one I see of these I guess! Has a tad less structure, with a mellower palate and less hop since I probably over-aged it (no point revisions for that) but it gains complexity and is still all class with no objectionable flaws.
