notalush (5856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Batch #42: This has a red/brown appearence with a substantial, creamy head, that takes its time shrinking to a nice lacing. There is a sweet, yeasty aroma, that gives a slight hint of the flavor to come. Heaps of malts, subtle hop presence, sweet caramel, chocolate-covered fruit - there is a lot going on. This reminds me quite a bit of Youngs Old Nick. This is a bit better, but Old Nick is quite a bit cheaper, and this isnt superior enough to it to make me want to buy it that often. Still, this is a great beer.

BeerRenter76 (1002) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 2/7/09. My only gripe about this was the carbonation, upon pouring (very, very slowly) i had a pint glass full of foam with 1 inch of beer. It took forever for it to finish pouring the glass and i ended up only getting about 8 oz. out of each of my bottles (2). Other than that it was pretty good. Aroma and flavors of sweet malts, dark fruit, pine and floral notes from the hops. Overall it was nicely balanced, not too sweet or bitter, good complex flavors, and it was easy to drink. A bit pricey but it was worth a try. Batch #73

dysenteri (306) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2017
Golden apricot color with white foamy head. Lively bubbles rising to the top. Aroma of caramel, rye, brown sugar, malts, small fruity notes. Sweet, boozy, numbs the toungue. Tangerine from the rye. A bit too boozy.

Tide (3709) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2017
Draught at Hair of the Dog. Hazy amber color, white head. Bittersweet taste with citrus, ripe fruits, peach, resin, a bit of hops, pine and earthy notes. Bittersweet finish with citrus, hops, peach, resin, earthy notes and a bit of alcohol. Excellent brew, a kind of a mixture of barley wine and Belgian strong ale.

Pomiędzy Triplem a utlenionym na miodowo IIPA. Całkiem spora goryczka, sporo miłej, owocowo-przyprawowej słodyczy. Fajne.

josanguapo (1559) - SPAIN - MAR 18, 2017
From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Batch 96. Playing Shantae Pirates Curse. Pretty alcoholic and sweet. However, its not unpleasant but just the opposite thanks to a good usage of candi sugar and hops. Sticky and oily
