33cl Bottle at a restaurant in Edinburgh, Scotland. Golden amber colour, white head. Sweet aroma of oak, vanilla, toffee. Flavour is very much the same, almost no bitterness. Too sweet imo. Light bodied. SirLimpsalot (4220) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2010
Jag kan inte skriva annat än direkt vidrig. Den gick rätt i slasken. Det får vara gränser för vad man ska dricka. note666 (1300) - Eindhoven, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2010
2010 - 11 - 02 330 ml clear bottle. dark golden colour. small white head. strange taste, first thought of milk, later tasted the vanilla and toffee.. tomasahlin (2) - SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2010 does not count
This is probably among my favourite beers. It’s something about the taste that I like. RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Vanilla, toffee, and nougat aroma. Flavor has a nice dose of vanilla and has a distinct butteriness that is not entirely bad - it works for the beer. Off dry, OK mouthfeel. Not a bad beer.

Suspicious clear glass bottle - why do they use them? How much more pricey is tinted glass? Surely it’s worth the price of having a drinker buy your beer again. Anyway.... This pours amber with a finger of frothy head, which is quick to disappear. A bit of sulphur on the nose, but not much of anything really. Possibly a faint toffee smell. In the mouth it’s sweet, with lots of caramel and honey. Then there’s a bit of wood, but it’s not a vanilla taste - somehow this manages to taste like artificial wood flavouring. (How is that even possible?) What this reminds me of is a very milky coffee with caramel syrup added to it. The mouth feel is thin and it’s way too carbonated. I can’t say I get much on the finish besides sugar and the gassy taste of forced carbonation. This is a dull, mass produced, careless beer masquerading as craft - which is pretty damn insidious.

Tried on bottle. Colout is a nice brownish, dark, amber and the head is light and rich. Taste is sweet with the aroma adding banana and toffee, very little bitterness. BeerBaboon (2092) - FINLAND - OCT 7, 2010
Immediately after pouring this beer to a 41cl snifter, I smell the oak and hops from far away. Then comes the toffee and vanilla. The colour is caramellish brown. It’s a delicious beer tastes slightly malty, toffee, vanilla. There is a slightly bitter aftertaste that Iam not sure belongs there. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2011 9/30/10 Good Lord; I feel like I’ve had a completely different beer than most of you. Either I had a bottle that was taken very well care of, or it’s another case of different strokes. Bottle poured at the LIC Beer Festival. Golden pour with little bubbly head. Aroma is potent of whisky, rum, toffee, lemon, smoke, and oak. The flavor is m-a-s-s-i-v-e of toffee, coconut, vanilla, and oak. Incredible smoothness with a perfect buttery toffee, whisky, and vanilla finish. Subtle fade of whisky with delicious toffee stickiness. This is what I wish whisky actually tasted like. A memorable beer. 8/3/9/5/16--- RERATE: So I’ve had this many times now, and nothing’s come close to that first taste. Entirely inconsistent. Sometimes is fairly good. Sometimes tastes like little more than a cornfed lager. This needs to be bumped down a serious peg. No more clear bottles, please! lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2010
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 6.6.2009.
Pours a clear orange colour with a minimal head. Horrible aroma of butter, malts and loads of honey. Same thing on the flavour too. Very greasy mouthfeel. This one is probably ruined, but that’s what you get when you use a transparent bottle for the brew.
