Scipio (869) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Pours a deeper brown with an average beige head. Aroma is more heavy and malty, consisting of caramel, nuts, fig, and some slight spice notes. Roasted. The taste is pretty much what I was expecting from the nose. It is more nutty here and the I do get a bit more spice, especially at the end. The aftertaste is more nutty over everything else. It lasts awhile, but isnt very strong. This is very smooth when drinking, with a medium body and some flatter carbonation. Nothing bad to report, although this one isnt all that special.

Bottle @ home: Pours mahogany with a medium white head. Malty aroma with hints of fruit. Nice taste with roasted malts, nuts and caramel, ending with hints of bittering hops

Sjohnh (832) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
Dark brown with a reddish tinge, starting with a decent off- white head but soon looking like Pepsi. Medium body. Very malty, giving burnt toffee and some bitter chocolate. Also nuts and some dried fruits. Bit too much of a tar taste for me.

Jado (795) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2012
Needs a bit of agitation to produce a head, but it looks good - dark brown with red highlights. Detected some caramel and nuts on the nose. The taste is definitely driven by malty notes, with caramel, dried fruit and some nuttiness coming through. The spice is quite muted compared to say Brewdog?s There is No Santa, but is still evident. The body is a little thin and the palate a bit short, but pretty good overall.
