Buona old ale caratterizzato dal malto caramellato. Mollto ben equilibrata anche se il caramellato del malto avvolge la lingua. Ben fatta anchese lo stile non mi appartiene...

delnoche (516) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - FEB 3, 2012
33cl poured into a pint glass. Amber brown with a small tan cap. Aroma is raisin and slight cranberry. Flavor is raisins. I rated this beer after a night of drinking several beers. My senses are not what they should be. However, I get a hint of chocolate in the finish. Perhaps a hint of honey also. Nice brew.

esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2012
Dark amber/brown colour. Thin beige head has creamy texture with some bigger bubbles. Creamy caramelly nose with strong berryish aromas (raspberry, fresh cherries) and a touch of alcohol. Slightly perfumy sweet fruitiness. The flavor is drier that one would expect. Dark caramel with dark ripes. Raisiny and caramelly finish is dryish, woody and it has light herbal hoppiness. Some alcohol comes through. Medium bodied, oily and minimally carbonated texture.

thomat (3795) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2016 Dark reddish amber with a thick off white head. Fruity with malty tones. Malt, fruit and caramel. full body with a nice, bitter sweet finish. New bottle from SB., 2016-02. Smells nice, but has a taste of cooked cabbage and a metallic, unplesant, finish. Not a good batch !

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle. A clear dark red-brown colour with a small, good lacing, beige head. An aroma of roasted malt, toast, caramel and herbs. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration.

TET (2957) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
A reddish, dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Intensive and sweet aroma, raisins, some toffee and strawberries, also belgian yeast; overally, aroma is pleasant and sweet. Taste is dryer than aroma, medium sweet, toffee, raisins, nice roastiness with wooden hoppyness dries the taste, also some herbs. Surprisingly, only medium bodied, slippery and easy. Great aroma promises sweet and dessert like beer, thus Old Tom without high sweetness was almost a disappointment even I dont like too sweetness. Strong brittish ale where alcohol is nicely hidden, good and succesfull beer.

Dermi (1180) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2012
33 cl, bottled. Pours brown (not very good lighting, seems quite black) with a light beige head. Aroma: Coffee, hops. Fruits and candy floss. Bread. Roasted malt. Taste: Medium sweet. Acidic tone. Salmiakki. Coffee like bitterness. Palate: Medium body, pretty balanced feel. Not sure if the worlds best ale, but still pretty solid one.

Chiswick (159) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2012
Dark brown colour, no head, a coke like appearance with bubbles on the sides of the glass. Aromascape is dark and fresh: dark bread, rye, liquorice, grapes, dark fruit, dough, earth, tobacco, dark coffee, toffee, cream. The taste enhances the darker cream tones: sweet overall taste. very balanced and full of character. carbonation could be slightly less aggressive.
