FatPhil (15129) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
750ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2007). For all the malt-lovers out there. Rich ruddy brown colour, and a taste to match. Sweet caramel malts are dominant, but with enough nuttiness and spiciness to make it quite interesting and not 1-dimensional. Did I mention huge amounts of malt?

Benzai (14790) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Bottle shared @ WWT II. Clear amber red color, small to medium sized off-white head. Not much aroma. Taste malts, lightly fruity, lightly iron, grape-peel. Medium body, medium to fullccarbonation.

bhensonb (14616) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 17, 2008
750 ml bottle (Dec 07) from Monument in Concord, CA. Spicey, roasted caramel aroma. Dark amber color that didn’t last long, and neither did the white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, almost hinting of cola. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Rather mild, but there is enough bitter to balance the malt. A very calm and relaxing experience. Good stuff.

imdownthepub (13835) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. Amber with white head. This proved to be quite a sweetish, caramel beer, toffee but with a yeasty spiciness and light lemonade note. Pleasant and easy drinking, quite decent.

Bottle. Frothy white excellent mostly lasting head. Amber colour. Heavy malty and light hoppy aroma. Cramellic notes. Moderate sweet and light bitter flavor. Average slightly perfumed finish. Oily palate. A little boring beer but ok.

Scopey (13558) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Bottle at Sous-Bock, Paris. It pours amber, with a long-lasting thick beige head. The nose is caramel, wood, leather and spice. The taste is caramel, wood, very spicy, earth, some dark fruit, metallic, brown bread, leather and some warming alcohol, with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and fizzy champagne-like carbonation. A great biere de garde.
