dorain (519) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017
Aus der Flasche im 2017-09 getrunken. Irgendwie eine leicht gehopfte Mischung aus ein Bitter mit leichter Frucht und ein paar Röstnoten eines Porters. Nicht schlecht.

zacgillbanks (5446) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2017
Bottle from Sainsbury's, Team Valley, Gateshead. Very dark brown-ruby coloured with a thick white head. It has a wine like aroma, with dried fruit and plum flavours, hints of burnt toffee and caramel followed by sherry on the finish. Very good.

Rhombic (145) - Elx, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2017
Pours dark caramel, lovely tan head, deserves 4/5 beyond doubt. Aroma of caramel, malts, honey and dates. Lovely hoppy ending for such a smooth beer: dark malts prominent and a black tea to coffee flavour note before the aromatic hop ending. No hop bitterness. Oily with a medium-full body. Delicious.
