HuskerTan (2211) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. A- Dark fruits, raisins, nuts, toast, bread. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, white head. T- Dark fruits, raisins, dough, slightly sweet. P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- A bit of a let down, but still great. I prefer the 8 and 10 over this. Seemed to lack a lot of complexities the other two have.

(Flasche) Es hat eine kupferne Farbe, ist trüb mit leichten Flöckchen und mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aromas ist heftig, etwas wie Glühwein, vllt die Nelken, und viel Heidelbeere. Der Geschmack ist samtig, heftig, leicht süßlich und sonst wie das Aroma.

Aroma is honney, tea, and caramel. Taste is similar. Hints of Coca-Cola. The 7,5% ABV is very well hidden.

ironcontra (332) - POLAND - JUL 25, 2017
Figs, some chocolate or marzipan in there as well, plums, I see you with the Darjeeling tea. Very volatile head. Phenomenal balance, not too sweet, not tiring at all.
