janubio (761) - - JAN 9, 2013
500 ml. bottle, porus a small brown head, amber colour. Smells of caramel, chocolate, banana and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla. Very sweet palate, though I found the body too light. Taste of dark fruits, chocolate, xerry or port wine and a hint of coffee in the end, though it keeps the sweetness.

vinivini (1702) - BELARUS - FEB 15, 2017
Clear mahogany colour, moderate off-white head. The aroma is disturbed by notes of hay and cardboard. Also caramel & treacle are there. Medium body. Rich malty taste. Lots of caramel & molasses. Vinous. Low bitterness. Rather disappointing.

Marko (5305) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 5, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 0.5l bottle, thanks Riba! Lovely red amber clear body and a small beige head. Not lasting. Caramel, dry and alcohol. Too much alcohol really. Caramelly taste, sugary bit, soft. Low alcohol thankfully. Just a bit in the finish. Ok stronger lager.

Garrold (4761) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, deep copper red. Dense, bubble topped, cream coloured head. Nose has fruited malt loaf. Well baked apple. Some caramel. Hint of almond. Taste is toffee sweet. Soft and foamy mouthfeel. Has a little vine fruit dryness towards the end, but stays mostly sweet throughout. Nice enough, but a bit sticky for me.

Xtoph (47) - AUSTRIA - JAN 2, 2017
Bottle was in my beer advent calendar. Very nice bottle design. Appearance: Dark red liquid with some visible carbonation and a small white foam. Aroma: Malty with fruits (oranges). A bit of caramel and herbs. Also some dark fruits. Noticeable alcohol. Taste: Not too overwhelming sweetness with a subtle bitterness. Palate: Medium body with lively carbonation, creamy texture and a good finish. Overall: Balanced taste and some good aromas. I like the mouthfeel of this beer.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołów, POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle. Grain, caramel, nuts, bread crust, sweetish with a light, herbal bitterness and nutty notes in the light dry finish. Tastes lighter than a doppelbock, more like a dunkler bock. And boy, does this one taste good.

Bottle. Clear dark brown color, white head. Dominant malt and honey aroma, with a bit black pepper and spices. Sweet taste, moderate bitterness and perceptible alcohol sharpness. Sweet malty aftertaste, together with a warming alcohol. Moderate carbonation, thick, rich mouthfeel.
