Bottled 500ml (Alko web)
Deep clear nut brown color, small off-white beige head. Nutty with toffee and madeira in the nose, some signs of age. Medium-bodied, mellow. Toffee, nutty maltyness, finish has decent spicey hops. Balanced. One of the better Vintages lately and probably after 1,5 years at its best.

BrewWhatIWant (191) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2017
Pours ruby colour with an offwhite head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of malt, oranges, cherries, earthy hops. Like London Pride, but more. I wish I had bought more so I could try it after a few years.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2017
[8738-20160924] 500mL bottle. Fruity malt grain aroma. Hazy, dark red amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Boozy dark fruit wood malt flavour has a long deep sweet finish. Medium-full body. Interesting but not enough of a fan of the style, personally. (7/3/5/3/12) 3.0-

Davros IX (334) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - Malt, bitter hops and it tasted very alcoholic. I think it needs to be left for a while to soften. Not one that I particularly enjoyed, but I will stick the other bottle at the back of the cupboard for a couple of years and hope for the best

Bill Becker (1011) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle, best before end of 2025. Pours hazy orange red, plenty of foam and sticky lacing. Smells of caramel malt, has a fruity semi sweetness, a wee bit of butterscotch. Taste has the caramel, bread, hints of toffee, very light butterscotch, only a smidgen of the fruit I mentioned. Maybe not even there. High end of medium bodied, alcohol hidden well. This is great.

dnicolaescu (2535) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - APR 13, 2017
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear copper, beige head. The aroma is malty, notes of fruity lollipop. The taste is still malty, fruity, already slightly jammy and oxidized. Subtle spicy warming alcohol and hop bitterness. Yeah, at only one year old it’s already getting some of that aged Vintage feel.

3.7
Gurthnar (5820) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from Drinkshop. Very carefuly balanced malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness so that none of them has the upper hand. Even light light sourness, which just about adds to the complexity. Dried fruits are present and so are figues, biscuity caramelly maltiness. The hops support the malt throughout, while keeping mostly out of the spotlight. Relatively complex grassy earthy herbal hops character. Tasty beer, grows on me. Quite a good one.

3.7
Cuso (8616) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from Gurthnar, many thanks. Amber color with medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts, raisins, figs. Taste, malt, caramel, nuts, raisins, figs, alcohol. Very good.

Butelka z numerem: #014148
AROMAT: Intensywny. Słodkie nuty karmelu, prażonych migdałów (ewentualnie marcepan) oraz miodu. W tle rodzynki oraz nuty alkoholu.
SMAK: Słodkie, lecz nie nachalnie. Analogicznie do zapachu: karmel oraz migdały. Wysokie nasycenie. Alkohol jest tutaj bardzo dobrze wkomponowany.
WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnozłota, przechodząca w bursztyn, klarowne. Piana drobna, niska.
OGÓLNIE:Mmm, zaskakująco dobre. Świetne do degustacji.
