YantarCoast (1510) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 10, 2017
330ml bottle from RusBeerShop. Pours hazy orange-brown with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is wood, pine, caramel, orange. Taste is wood, caramel, oranges, moderate bitterness, dry finish. Interesting.

alexmate (285) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2017
Pours a sort of light amber colour, nice lacing, thin white head. The aroma is boozy with some red fruits, yeast, spices and a slight stale cardboard smell. Taste is very similar to a barley wine with some boozy brandy like apricot, raisin and plum flavours, hoppy bitter finish. Nice beer, but is it an IPA?

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 33cl bottle from wishbeer bangkok. pours amber with little head. fruity malty aroma with mold citrus and malty taste.

17Beer (414) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 27, 2017
12 oz bottle. Scents of leather and apricot and sours. Pours a dark orange with a white head that quickly dissipates. Complex balances of sour and sweet with a sour lingering finish. Some alcohol notes. Mild carbonation. Very unique.

stupre (524) - Nanterre, FRANCE - JUL 1, 2017
Taster @ Mondial de la bière Paris. Notes de caramel et de fruits mûrs. Très maltée avec un final sur l’amertume.

Strykzone (7624) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle. Darker brown and opaque. A beige head that leaves nice lacing. Fruit and malts in the aroma. Tangerine and some tropical varieties with some dark fruit. First sip brings some harshness as from a barleywine. Caramel is among the malt flavors and this tends to be quite malty. It also tastes a little hot and perhaps this should be a barleywine. Hops are minimal. Or maybe faded.

colui72 (1098) - HONG KONG - JUN 2, 2017
Clear amber, medium off-white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of resin, caramel, ripe fruits. Taste is on the malty side, with nice sweet malts, caramel, a bit barleywine-ish; then some wood, ripe fruits, alcohol. Medium bodied with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, medium bitter, long finish. Excellent.

BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Pours hazy orange-amber with a tight, 1-finger bone-colored head. Mild grapefruit hop aroma mixed with a wood note. Maybe some caramel too. Body is medium with just a touch of oil to it. Light astringency to the finish. Hop flavors show as notes of citrus and resin that mix at the back with a pleasant wood note.

NallePalle (703) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2017
Bottle, 33 cl, Budda Kahn Teppanyaki, Mall of Scandinavia. Plesant ale, not too hoppy.

Cokemonkey11 (1084) - - APR 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours gorgeous ruby amber and opaque with light orange hue and a medium tan foam subsiding to a thin rim. Scent is medium dense notes of orange zest, light caramel, and wood resin. Taste is lovely old ale with medium notes of caramel and dark fruit. Finish is slightly dry at about 30 IBU. Great.
