BrewWhatIWant (122) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Pours clear mahogany with a slightly yellowish head. Aroma is malty with caramel. Taste is sweet with a touch of bitterness, sour and spice. It tastes like dessert. Its fairly malty with notes of bready malt, apples, spice, and caramel that remind me of apple cinnamon bread, and then cherries and raisins. There’s some booziness, like rum, but it’s under enough deliciousness to avoid being off putting. Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. This is definitely a one and done beer, but it’s one that I will definitely come back to.

vinivini (1799) - 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 (5354) - 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 (4852) - 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.
