Leighton (21258) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle shared in London - huge thanks to Anders for this one. Pours lightly hazy, golden-brown with a foamy, off-white head. The nose has rich bread, some toffee, golden raisins, hints of butter. Big sweet flavor with heavy golden raisins, dates, rich pale bread, white sugar, stewed apples. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Rich, lightly warming finish, tons of sugary bread, moderate fruits, more golden raisins, pale toffee. Delicious. Extremely decadent and hefty but really damn tasty. Scopey (14736) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours darkest-amber brown with a small beige head. The nose is earthy, malty, brown bread, toast, dirty, caramel, toffee and honeycomb. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, honey, candied citrus peel, nectarine, wood, oily and earth with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not bad.

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 05.03.2010
Aroma is sweet with somewhat ripe fruits, sugary notes and caramel. Flavour is really sweet with fruits, shitloads of caramel and some sugary notes. Too sweet and too boozy, just like Bommen & Granaten. A good way to get a diabetes.
