Koelschtrinker (21831) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 30, 2012
Brotiger Antrunk, süß, etwas alkoholisch. Unausgewogen, die nur geringe Süße verdrängt den Hopfen. Weich, der beste Part ist der mittellange Nachgeschmack. 7/7/8/9/9/7 _angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle courtesy of rlgk. Pours tiny hazy copper with a small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is intense, sweet and hoppy with caramel, grapefruit rinds, caramel, alcohol, oily pine, moist tobacco, sweet white bread, golden syrup and alcohol. Taste is very sweet and bitter with caramel, alcohol, grapefruit rinds, pine needles, resinous wood, golden syrup, sweet bread, resinous wood and toffee. Mouthfeel is round, boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with caramel, resinous wood, grapefruit rinds, pine needles, dried apricots and hints of golden syrup, grass and sweet bread. Way too boozy and unbalanced... larsniclas (7235) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2012

Craft Clarkenwell. A sample bottle generously shared by Frederic and Tom - cheers guys! Clear amber beer, no real head. Smooth palate, a little crisp. Rich barleywine style malts. Rich and creamy. Great marmalade hops with resinous grapefruit and lemon. Mild lactose. Smooth dry finish. Slight gum numb. Comes over like a well dry hopped barleywine.
33cl Bottle from the man himself, cheers Alex! Clear reddish amber colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of a whiff of blue cheese first, then lovely sweet malts, light citrus hops, grass, raisins, red fruits, bubblegum. Flavour is quite sweet but kept in check, very malty, raisins, red fruits, caramel, nice earthy liquorice root, great creamy grassy hoppy bitter finish. Fullbodied, smooth, fabulous beer, imho a great take on an English barley wine with "a little" extra hops. Excellent. Beersiveknown (5303) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle at home courtesy of Alex, cheers! altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Dark ruby with white lacing with fruity maltloaf and brandy nose with supporting Seville marmalade. Concentrated citrus fruit, tongue tingling mouth watering pithiness with robust toffee underscore. Long citrus refrain. The alcohol in this is barely noticeable. Masterful.

Thanks to Alex! Dark brown clear body with medium soapy head. Nose is sweet, malty, caramel, hops in there too. Taste is lots of hops in front, then gets warmer and spicier with more and more ABV but hops in there strong and through the finish. A really nice experience that ends in a warm, creamy hop bath.
