Bottle @ Jack the Sipper. Hazy deep red with a tiny head. Marzipan. And raisin bread. Plenty off cocoa and roasted coffee. Taste is leather, meat drippings, really sweet caramelised sugar. Coffee. Full body, oily. OK. Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Paul. Vintage 2008. Pours lightly unclear amber-gold with a bubbly, tan head. The nose has old fruits, slight Parmesan cheese, jammy fruits. Big sweet flavor, lots more jammy fruits, gummies, caramel, fruitcake. Full bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Warm finish with further gummie fruit candies, caramel. Rich, sugary, a bit boozy. Pretty damn hefty but I do enjoy it. Inbreak (6709) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 24, 2014

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Is there a story behind this name? Because for some reason it makes me chuckle. This is downright cloudy, medium brown with a golden crown that retains nicely. Aroma is extremely brothy, like Bovril, with sweet brown sugary undertones. Brothy malty chewy palate, Triscuits, bread, sponge toffee. Showing its age, but I still liked it,

(Bottle). The smell and taste is sweet with aromas of raisins, brown sugar, figs and caramel malt. The taste is a little vinous with hints of warming alcohol. An impressive beer with well balanced flavors! bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma of dark sugar and dark plummy fruit. Med + body. Heat barely discernible. Flavor is brown sugar, dark fruit, perhaps earthy hop. Finishes pleasantly, but much less than dry. marcus (10865) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with no head, just a few bubbles and a citrusy fruit aroma. There is a sweet treacle flavor, very syrupy with noticeable alcohol.
