33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since it’s a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly it’s a surprising beer. From taste I would say it’s more of a typical brown brown. danielyabu (1658) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - OCT 16, 2011

Bottle. Dark golden - orange, cloudy, very small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and caramel sweet aroma, fruitiness and some hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweet flavor, lots of fruitiness, caramel and some hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, very fruity with some hoppyness, caramel. Caramel sweetish strong ale- sweetness subdues totally the bitterness. Thylacine (526) - Tasmania, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2011

33 cl bottle @ some restaurant in Brussels. Rated on 13.4.2009
Aroma has sweetish malt with caramel. Flavour has caramel with hints of salt. I was hoping a good pale ale to get a pause from all of those Belgian ales – but this appeared to be rather far from a pale ale. And had even some elements from a Belgian Ale...
ruby red color. full body. english strong ale with a touchof belgian caramel. final little bitter . good aroma of toasted malt. Benzai (15607) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2011
Clear red / dark amber color white head. Smell a little spicy, not very nice to me. Average taste with a low body. Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Bright ruby-red color, with a fine, flat white head. Aroma is very hoppy spicy, slightly bitter with a sweet touch. The finish is changing very quickly in an extremely bitter taste. Unfortunately, the bitter tone to the middle part is a little pushy. Finish is overhopped, very bitter. Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Bei diesem Bier ist ein blumiger Geruch wahrzunehmen. Ein recht würziges Bier, im Mittelteil noch malzig süß, im Nachgeschmack dann eher etwas erdig. Also irgendwie ist das Bier schon ok, wobei mir der etwas eigene Nachgeschmack nicht wirklich bekommt.

Clear copper colour, white head. Aroma rather restrained, but very nice. Floral and citrus hops on a malt base. Quite sweet, quite pronounced honey and some caramel. Flavour is malty, nice bitter hops tones, citrus fruits, honey. Very balanced. Finish bit bitter with citrus tones.
