Botled on March 2011. Fajna owijka ale brak na niej zawartosci alkoholu. Przechodzac do piwa to zapach czerwonych owocow, runa lesnego i nieco sosny. W smaku czerwone owoce, marmolada porzeczkowa i silnie korzenne posmaki do tego chmiel wyrazisty goryczkowy. Posmak dlugi i czysty. Alkoholu nie wyczuwa sie. Piwo o glebokiej rubinowej barwie z wielka i trwala pianka oblepiajaca szklo i do konca testowania trzymajacej sie na powierzchni piwa. mkel07 (6239) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2012
750ml bottle from Archive. Pours a deep ruby red to copper brown colour with not so much as a head of foam but more like a sprinkle. Deep caramel malt aroma fills the nose. Mouth filling flavour with lots of malt and caramel, nutty and biscuity. This is a very god beer. TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 20, 2011
really a great amber ale. First off the cork was a bitch to get out but worth the wait. Color is a deep brown amber that glows more in the light. Topped by a yellow tinged head. aromas of caramel, reduced fruity wine, and toast dominate. Some grass hops smell notes are lighter. taste is a full red ale like malt. finishes out with touch of booze and very dry. Great even mouth feel balancing carbonation and perfect unfiltered texture.

Pours brownish red with a thin white head. Smells of resiny hops, some sweet malty undrtones. Tastes velvety with some nice resiny hints and a spicy finish. Enjoyable. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 17, 2012
In bottle. Pours a golden amber colour with a thick beige head. Aroma of toffee, treacle and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Nicely bitter. Not bad at all.

Bottle. High creamy and long lasting off-white head. Hazy dark ruby body. Lovely sweet aroma of raspberries, cocoa and caramel. Flavor also very sweet roasted malt caramel cocoa but it has a fruity fresh hint that I cannot really figure out. Good though. Low carbonation. Long and a bit dustry sweet aftertaste. Not much bitterness but its there. Very well balanced beer with the alcohol well hidden by the sweetness. Nice surprise. And then in a huge bottle. I won’t share it with anybody!

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep ruby, with a large light beige head, which lasts well and leaves decent lacing. Leather, a hint of smoke, resin and spice hops make for an inviting aroma. Potent spruce, citrus zest and marmalade hops up front give way to caramel, toffee and a meaty, savoury flavour in the mid-palate. It finishes strongly, with orange blossom and spruce hops. A nicely balanced hoppy, malty strong ale. halfonit (1392) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2010
I got a bottle of this from the brewer. Pours a deep clear amber color with a very thick off white head. Aroma if of sweeter malts, some caramel, toffee, and some sweeter hops. Taste is pretty similar to the smell. There might be a little bit of bread and gluten present also. Leaves a sweeter malt finish. Not too bad. Not too bad at all. bhensonb (15609) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
750 from cakanator. Pours dark reddish amber with a foamy 4 finger tan head. Rich caramel aroma, lightly roasted, with something like chocolate. Chocolate = leather? Full bodied or near with foamy carbonation. Flavor is confusing. Darkish malt; tannic; baking chocolate; earthy hop. Yeasty. Musty. Barnyardy. Really good ale. Guess it’s an amber, cause I can’t think what else to label it. philvil (176) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 18, 2010
