calfaro (21) - Trujillo Alto, - OCT 22, 2009
Reddish color, decent head formation, great lacing. Very flowery aroma. Caramel like initial taste and a hoppy/bitter finish. Normally I prefer a smoother finish but this was great and well worth the price tag.

Palme (4647) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2016
0.75l bottle brought home from The George and Dragon in Barcelona. Been keeping this for a while in the cellar. The label actually says both 9 and 8.2%. Looks really good in the glass with a warm perfect amber cloudy body under a medium sized eventually fading and light bubbly just off-white head. Love the malty sweet caramel nose thats loaded with red sweet fruits and a really suiting oxidized touch. Oh, yeah this smells good! In the mouth this one has a somewhat light oily mouthfeel, you can definitely sense that this has been aged and its just above soft on the carbonation. Really oxidized in the taste, but still I have to admit that I kinda like how this tastes. More than red fruits, strawberry, wild strawberries with The sweetness you can get from Red currants. Some strong malty caramel sweetness combined with light detergents and it still keeps a nice bitterness towards the finish. A lovely thing, and just wish I could return to the lovely bar where I bought it. Unfortunately I cant. 21.02.2014

750ml as gift, liberally shared around with good company. As XS Dead Guy, at 9%. Reddish light brown, quite a lot of visible carbonation and very little head. Caramel, freshly baked brioche, candied yams, naked alcoholism l in the aroma. Taste starts sweet as would be expected but theres a pared-down hoppy bitterness in the latter half of the sip. Bitter cooking herbs, turpentine, toffee in the aftertaste which doesnt work as well as Id like. Full oily body without so much alcohol burn going down. Very enjoyable but as a big beer doesnt quite have the best balance.

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2016 750ml ceramic bottle at the Head of Steam, Durham. Golden amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Creamy aroma of cereals and hops, along with more vibrant notes of blackcurrant and passion fruit. Thick mouthfeel with flavours of stout cream, oak smoke, whiskey, and the lingering clean flavour of the air after a rainstorm.

boto (2184) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 4, 2016
750 ceramic bottle: 2008 vintage (hiding in the back of the refrigerator for quite a while.) This one pours a clear amber color. There was a fairly decent sized off-white head on it. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. It has a good nose. Grainy, roasted malts, fruits, toffee. The taste is very good. Some graininess, toffee, a bit of bitterness, some fruits in the background. A hint of spiciness also. A very nice brew. I need to check out a fresher bottle, but this was really nice.

davidezdonz (470) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - APR 20, 2016
A 750ml ceramic and wingtop bottle with no bottled on or best by date. Poured into a Mikkeller pint glass. It poured a cloudy dark amber colour with a one finger off white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some spotty lacing. Aromas of apple juice (very juicy), caramel, biscuit malt, grape and a hint of orange. Taste was quite similar with caramel malt sweetness, apple juice, tea, grape, raisins and dark berries. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Overall this was ok. Not bad, but just ok. A little bit too caramel-ly sweet for my taste buds.

Draught at Watering Hole. Lots of caramel, malt, nuts, yeast, booze, finish is quite sweet. Feels quite heavy and messy, quite a disappointment compared to the solid classic version.
