pours almost clear bright orange with a very nice creamy off-white head, good retention and lacing. fragrant sweet orange peel/skin and orange blossom layered in doughy lightly spicy caramel; woodsy, bitter and astringent herbs, cacao powder, integrated warming booze, belgian yeast, very nice fruitiness - spicy apricots perhaps, lightly sweet tobacco, gently soothing vanilla - thankfully muted, some sweetness - golden candi, candied sweetness, peppery and few floral notes. bright to average carbonation, medium body - oily, assertive grassy-earthy-woodsy-citrusy finish. interesting offering. herbs/spices are very well integrated if not just slightly muted - for my pleasure. nicely crafted.

Hitachino Nest Commemorative Ale: Illatban leginkbb a belga vonalas koriander, valamint az nnepi jelleget erőstendő fahj cspősks fűszeressge s a szerecsendi sima, kerekded s telt aromja fedezhető fel. Ujjnyi vastag habrtege hamar tovatűnik, m egy vkony karima egszen a vgsőkig megmarad, gy kpezi dszt a tiszta, rzsznű italnak. lnk, gazdag kortyait lvezhetjk aztn a kstolsa sorn, melyek rendre hozzjrulnak az jv első napjnak megsznestshez, ehhez pedig az eszkztrat a cmkjn felsorolt komponensek szolgltatjk. Az alapvetően des hangulat festővszonra sorban rkeznek az rnyalatok; a vanlis, karamelles, tejsznes krmessget korianderes fűszeressg pezsdti fel, majd jbl elsimul a kompozci a fahj s szerecsendi sztrad aromitl. Annak ellenre, hogy sszessgben egy igen des főzetről van sz, az sszkp egyltaln nem lesz nyomaszt s kiegyenslyozatlan, az zek remekl olvadnak ssze.

daknole (10926) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Amber pour, off white head. Tap at Angels Trumpet. Super malty and sweet. Almost cloying. But the abundance of malt flavor isnt welcomed.

slowrunner77 (11257) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 12, 2014
from notes: I think the vanilla beans make this beer. What would have been a slightly better than average spiced ale becomes something odd, but tasty, and of a high level of complexity. Quite nice, though maybe still a one timer."

scarletfire65 (1399) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy brown amber with minimal head. Looks like apple cider. Aroma of orange, cinnamon, sherry, raisins. Full bodied, aggressively sweet, dried fruits, fruit compote, citrus peel. Dry finish. Could be classified as a barley wine.

Beer5000 (6255) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 24, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Patricks as Commemorative Ale. Clear amber body with a medium sized white head. Aroma feels like sweet malt, dry fruit, some caramel and spices. Flavor is sweet malt, dry fruit, brown sugar, and spices, relatively bitter and warming alcohol. Full body and long, sweet aftertaste with dry fruit. A bit unusually but nice.
