At a tasting, thanks Stas, smallish head, hazy brown color, with lots of red hues, sweet feeling caramel aroma with some dried fruits, overpowering flavor of caramel with some glue and cakey maltiness in the back. Much too sweet and much too old. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 8, 2015

Tasting at Leighton’s Flat. Lightly hazy amber beer, decent cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Caramel malts, little cream. Tangy dried fruits. Finishes airy with a tangy linger. Okay.
Bottle shared in London. Thanks to Mitch. Pours clear amber with a creamy, frothy off-white head. The nose has some buttery toffee, herbs, bread. Medium sweet flavor with lots of bready malts, more buttery toffee, hints of cinnamon, dried herbs, grains. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with dry toast, ripe and leathery berries, mellow earth. Quite drinkable overall. mR_fr0g (14024) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014

Dark brown, brownish head but doesn’t last very long. Dark/ brown bread aroma. Nice strong sweet taste. Fruity. visionthing (5597) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 25, 2014
33cl bottle from Gero Alaus Parduotuvė, Kaunas. Pours hazy brown with a reddish hue and a tan head. Malty aroma with some roasty notes, dried dark fruits, caramel and hints of spices and something slightly unpleasant. Fairly sweet, but also balanced and quite flavourful. Something strange about this one, but quite drinkable. Fair enough. Arve_Christian (5225) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2014
