jamestulloch (4259) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2017
Can from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Hazy ruby body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee apple and strawberry syrup. Flavour of maple syrup, peppery malt and fig rolls. Medium body with a chewy mouthfeel. Light fizz. Flavoursome but heavy going.

beer_queue (145) - California, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Translucent dark copper with a medium pale head. A lot of jackfruit on the nose. Flavors are pretty dull overall; some light fruit sweetness and creamy malts up front and finishes with some earthiness. Full body, no carb, dry finish. Just decent.

Can from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep amber to brown with a decent head. Nose - toffee and nuts. Honey. Taste - hazelnuts and toffee. Praline. Marzipan. Palate - medium to full bodied with a sweet and tangy texture. The finish is sweet and almost cloying but not bad. Overall - decent example of the style even if it could be sweeter.

Sigmund (7815) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2016
650 ml bottle, as Moylan’s Scotch Ale, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.0%. Golden reddish brown colour, large off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel and woodwork, hints of dark dried fruits and red wine vinegar. Malty flavour, notes of caramel and dark dried fruits again, very moderate hops. Smooth to drink. Enjoyable.

Holmen1 (6296) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2016
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal, aug-16: uklar brunlig med kort skum. Sparsomt humlet (men heldigvis ingen røykmalt å spore). Karamell, halvråtne røde bær. Kjedelig avslutning. Didn’t it the spot for me.

3.4
Holmen2 (3880) - NORWAY - SEP 1, 2016
From bottle at Mi2 at Cardinal 29.08.16. Copper. Off-white head. Aroma and taste of dark syrup, toffee, berries and alcohol.
