Sigmund (7655) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2012
500 ml bottle, from a potential importer. ABV is 4.2%. Deep copper to chestnut colour (if this beer was a horse, the colour would be called "bay"). Large off-white head. Nice aroma of ripe Nordic fruits and berries, hints of blackcurrant leaves, also notes of toffee, sweet biscuits and caramel malts. The flavour is malty but not too sweet, mild roasty notes, some fruit, also biscuits. Dry and "dusty" English hops in the finish.

Oh yeah .... look at that head. Dark roasty toasty bitter bitter with real depth and malty integrity. Full bodied with long complex finish. I like this bitter alot.

Gift from the Scotsman / bottled. Ehh. I dunno, It was thin, and kind of plain. It had some nice roasted malt elements and a nice caramel aroma , but over all just bland.

TEJA (3103) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle at Björn, thanks. Long lasting beige head. Red-brown color. Strange aroma that goes towards english breakfast tea. Big bitterness and some caramell maltiness. No residual sweetness.

jamestulloch (4156) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2015 Bottle. Clear auburn body with a thin beige head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of tea, raisins, grass and copper. Flavour of grass, caramel and a hint of rum on the finish. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Subtle and delicate.

Beersiveknown (5296) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 18, 2012
Vanilla and chocolate yoghurt on the nose of this brown bitter. Fluffywhite head with flavours of red berries and toffee in the finish but very sweet.

jackl (8215) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2012
Cask. Ruby color with your standard bitter head. Light slightly floral nose, some brown sugar. The taste is very much of a classic bitter. Some caramel, nuttiness. A bit rustic, nice dry finish. This pint plays it straight as a bitter, though that’s not a bad thing. It’s flavorable, well put together.

olio (10374) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2012
50 cl bottle. BBE 07/2012.
Pours clear dark copper color with small head. Aroma of caramel, earth, grain, grass, mild fruits and malts. Quite faint aroma actually. Flavor of malts, caramel, flour and dry hay. Decent.
