June 11, 2014 - at Mondiale 2014 - expensive bottle sample. Slightly hazy amber with minimal head. Vaguely sweet - maple - hint of perfume soap - a bit nutty. Tastes like a smokey scotch ale, somewhat roasty and sweet - really grew on me. Thick, a bit syrupy and sticky, flat, sweet lightly smokey quick finish. NOT worth six friggin’ tickets though. islay (2755) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Majority of a 16.9 oz. (actually, I’m not sure; I didn’t record the size) bottle, consumed on Christmas day, 2016. Pours a hazy amber to dark tan. Leather-like appearance. Small amount of short-lasting, beige head. Lighter in color than I expected. Nice, nut brown ale-like flavor. Mineral taste. Nice liveliness in the palate. Medium body. Not a bad beer. Reasonably enjoyable. Nothing special, however. mauroruellas (792) - GETULINA, BRAZIL - AUG 14, 2016

Pours hazy ruby-brown with thin beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, yeast, light metallic. Taste is sweet, light bitter, alcohol. Medium body, soft carbonation. asedzie (827) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle - may be past its prime. Pours ruby with thick beige head. Nose is dusty malt syrup, slightly fruity. Flavor is good - mellowed out strong or old ale flavors, still some nuttiness, a bit of slick bitterness near the end. This is really nice as a boozy and nutty ale that is nearly a barley wine, a little hot, but has good complexity #fuqthehaters

Shared 20 oz. bottle. Pours hazy amber with lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, syrup, bread, and bitter nut extract. Cloying. The sweetness combined with the bitter nut flavor make for a rather unpleasant taste. Medium-bodied. Tough to finish this one. darbeer75 (902) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Aroma: reminiscent of the chestnut ale -- not a good thing; malty and sweet; Appearance: dark red with thin head; a little lacing; Taste: also similar to the chestnut ale unfortunately; lots of malt and caramel along with distinctive nutty taste; not looking forward to finishing the glass; Palate: medium body with long, unpleasant aftertaste; Overall: never again. nuplastikk (6277) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2016
20oz bottle. Not that impressive of an aroma. Oxidized specialty malts, syrupy not extract tone, slightly infected..the aroma is really unenjoyable, approaching vile. Should have saved this one for a tasting, it is not going to be fun drinking 20oz of this. Serious let down after enjoying some Way Beer sours. Shabby, poorly executed, cheapish feel. Not much is working here. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of nuts, spicy, cigar some alcohol. Flavor is a bit bitter, slightly spicy and dry. Nice balance. DrAlexandre (22) - Anapolis, BRAZIL, BRAZIL - FEB 2, 2015
Coloração âmbar, puxada mais pro marrom (SRM=≅26).
Espuma bege clara, perene, de média formação porém pouca duração.
Aroma bem puxado pro caramelo, floral e herbal, com notas de castanha e amêndoas.
Sabor inicialmente doce de caramelo e baunilha, logo mesclado por um amargor assertivo dos maltes torrados. Leves notas amargas dos lúpulos percebidas no final de cada gole. Leve sensação oleaginosa no corpo da cerva, que poderia ser da castanha, amêndoas ou avelã, sendo difícil distingui-las.
Textura aveludada porém não cremosa.
Carbonatação e corpo médio/alto.
