Douberd (5186) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, into a snifter, ABV 7.5%, bottled on 22/7/11 Deep red to light amber colour on the body, with a tall off white and froathy head. Very good retention nevertheless, leaving medium lacing on the glass. Body is clear with good activity in it. Aroma is quite malty, with caramel, light roasted malts, nicely hopped with noble hops. Very nice taste, sweet, with caramel and toffee, light hoppy, with the alcohol being quite obvious and enhancing the flavours. Medium thick body, nice carbonation with a bite on the tongue. Mildly dry palate. Overall a very nice take on the style, really enjoyed it.

hazy chestnut amber with a fluffy tan tinged hea. Lively bottle. Sweet toffee, sharp noble hops, high carbonation, bitter, touch of mandarin followed by nettle, rich and crisp.

visionthing (4957) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours lightly clouded amber with a huge, frothy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and malt with earthy notes. Smells a bit strange, but quite pleasant taste.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2011
0.33L bottle. Slightly hazed deep ruby red body. A finger of dense greyish-blond bubbles on top. Complex aroma. Vinous fruitiness, English fruit-cake, toasted peppery malts, earthy and spiced hops. Nice! More than medium full. A deep, refined malt-sweetness. Solid bitterness. Fine tones of dark dried fruits, mild spices and faint dark bread. Creamy texture. Flavorfull, yet in perfect balance. A really fine one.

zacgillbanks (4793) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This hazy dark amber-brown beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has pineapple and peppery hop flavours, almond and toffee notes with a slight sugary sweet, extremely dry and tart finish.

RichardGretton (4698) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. Muddy bronze beer with a very strong off white head. The aroma is lightly spiced with a good degree of bitterness. The flavour is more like a Belgian beer than an English beer with heavy bitterness, some spice and a good degree of maltiness. Overall a good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

_angst_ (4654) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2012
330 ml bottle bought @ Bierzwerg.de. Pours hazy amber with a big frothy off-white head that clings to the glass and leaves some lacing on it while slowly dissipating. Smell is sweet with sweet fruits like plums and raisins, caramel, alcohol and some hints of peaches and citrus. Taste is malty, bitter and slightly metallic with minerals, resin, dandelions and pine. Finish is dry and very bitter. Weird one this one, not sure what I think

Martinus (4563) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of cheese and malts. Light bitter flavour, hops, and quite a bit of off-flavours, fusel oils and medicine. Finish light hops and cheese.
Not sure what was the matter with this bottle, but it wasnt really pleasurable Im afraid. Might warrant a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle at the DMT @ Tims living, Gent. Shared by sebletitje. Thanks, Seba!)

Maakun (4493) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Reddish-brown, white head and nice visible carbonation. Nose has citrus, lychee, some toast, fruitcake. Something soapy in there as well. Taste is fruity, nice citrus, berries, medium bitter with a tart and long finish. Medium body with above-average carbonation. Overall: nice beer, but the soapy thing doesnt do it for me. If it had a bit heavier maltyness it would be more balanced. Still enjoyable though, and definately interesting.

Vaiz (4455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle. Clear deep red pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops and some tea leaves. Flavor is a nice balance between strong bitter hops and a nice rich malt base. Thick body and very drinkable.
