tricksta_p (4521) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is malt, spices, caramel, dark bread, clove, with a touch of brown sugar. Flavour is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Medium bodied. Sweet, very malty and spicy. Okay-ish, lacks some depth.

Bierridder_S (879) - BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2016
02/09/2016 - 33cl bottle @ a restaurant in Ghent. Darlk copper with rocky light tanned head. Nose is dark malts, caramel, fruits, same for taste. Strange for an amber ale but it wasn’t bad.

Zlotta (3188) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, dark brownish amber with a dark beige head. Sweetish-malty aroma of caramel, nuts and some brown sugar. Sweetish-malty, minimally roasty taste of caramel, nuts, a bit of chocolate and some brown sugar, followed by a short, slightly bitter and a bit roasty finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay!

TEJA (3010) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle @ Thomas W. thanks. Lasting small brown head. Clear amber color. Earthy vegetable aroma blended with caramell. Small caramell sweetness and a tiny belgian notes. A bit sweet.

330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. Pours a beautiful clear dark amber color forming a big and creamy light yellow color head with medium retention and some soapy and lingering lacings left in the glass. Nose is sweet and spicy. Strong notes of caramel malts, honey, brown sugar and apple. Hints of tangerine, cinnamon and dried plums. Taste follows the nose. Sweet, in overall. Strong notes of caramel malts, honey, brown sugar and apple. Again, hints of cinnamon, tangerine, candi sugar and dried plums. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Caramel, tangerine and dry fruits in the aftertaste. Not very persistent. Medium drinkability. Interesting.
