Bottle; shared; Ale House; Chelmsford; 7th April 2015. Lots of carmael; oak; cedar; dried fruits; some oxidisation but not too intense. Nice mouth-feel. A well-made and interesting barely wine. Would need to outsource another botlle for a more comprehensive review.

27.1.2015. Very dark ruby. Aroma of grain, sth in particular, maybe rye, red berries. Taste is also dominated by that one grain. Sweet, very grainy, strong.

Es una cerveza de color ámbar con una pequeña cabeza de color blanco. Aromas característicos de malta oscura, frutas maduras, notas de lúpulo y alcohol. Sabor pronunciado a lúpulo y malta tostada con final largo, amargo y alcohólico. Cerveza muy agradable e interesante.

Keg at Porterhouse Central, Dublin. It pours a rich copper/ruby color with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, lightly yeasty, with notes of caramel, plums, toffee and ripe apricots. Taste is sweet, lightly boozy, with notes of ripe fruits, plums, caramel, toffee, yeast. Full bodied with creamy texture and good carbonation. Overall, nice Belgian style ale

Clear deep red - amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, slightly soft and semi dry. Malts are smooth with unsweet toffee and a little drying. Alcohol spice. Mild skunky hops, trace of marmalade. Semi dry finish, not bad but does show the alcohol.

Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a fair head. The aroma is roasted with some vinousness. The flavour is extremely bitter and roasted with a large malty port like quality. Overall a good heavily malty and roasted beer with plenty of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear dark amber, big off-white head. Aromas of booze, toffee, resinous hops. Taste has a light booze burn, more resin hops, sweet caramel, cake mix finish. Oily texture, but a clean finish for the strength/style.

pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy red/brown with a lasting small beige head. Aroma is malty with caramel, toffee, raisin, mild vinous, hops, grass, candy and booze.Taste is moderate sweet, bitter and light acidic. Body is medium, texture is thin oily, carbonation is moderate+. Finishes dry and thin’ish with lingering bitterness. Much too bitter barley for my liking.
