Strongroom festival. A fat, un-nuanced alcohol whiff and some sweetness and nut much else. Not golder as such but mid brown. Flat and syrupy, the alcohol so dominates that it’s not very pleasant, tastes like Eastern European tramp beer.

Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö, Gustav Adolf Torgjookos (6762) - FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
Beautiful amber color, the head from the sprinkler is short lived. Mild caramel aroma and more pronounced caramel flavor; it has a moderate nuttiness, and correct bitterness; give it some time, and it will show some silky liquor esters too in the aroma, subtle.
A good beer, but not as rich as it should be; not enough malty.
Cast. Dark amber clear. Sweetish caramel, light english earthy, woody hops. Medium bodied, sweet caramel malty. A bit boozy. Some darker, sweetish fruity flavours along the lines of raisins and dark syrup. A bit of yeast. A strong sweet malty ale. A bit too dark, condensed for me.OllieBBommel (1531) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2013

Cask at the Spread Eagle, Croydon. It pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The nose is golden syrup, wood, leather, spice, sultana, date and toffee. The taste is wood, spice, golden syrup, raisin, sultana, toffee, light astringency, alcohol warmth, with a dry, warming. Medium-full body, soft carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. Very smooth indeed. A quaffable winter warmer. jfb (6256) - GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012
