Bottle @ Really Late Ulfborg Summer Tasting, 2012. Pours clear ruby amber with a small white head. Nutty and hoppy. Quite a lot of bread. Smooth and dry. The price is stupid but the quality is fine. MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle at KØ15. Fruity, oxidised old-smelling aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Almost no head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma. Malty, but tastes quite old. Not my cup of beer. Borup (14492) - Albertslund, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2015

from Amstein - bright amber-red beer with a little foam left; aroma of nuts, spicy hops and notes of red fruits marmalade; some malt sweetness, full-bodied and decently bitter; light umami; very long spicy finish with more nutty and fruity tones rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
750 ml bottle. 2011. Thanks to Jukka. HHOK XV.olio (10272) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head.
Lagery aroma with malt, bread, nuts, woody dryness and mild buttery sweetness. Mild bitterness, alcohol and woody dryness in the flavour. Lagery. Not very good. Quite regular strong English Ale with a ridiculous price tag.

Pours clear copper color with a small head. Aroma of sweet fruits, caramel malts and some toffee. Flavor of sweet malts, caramel, toffee notes, some dried fruits. Decent and altogether refined beer but doesn’t really have any special qualities.
75 cl bottle vintage 2011 @ wPBF’13lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
Aroma has harsh malt, toffee and English hops. Flavour has woody notes, toffee, English hops, harsh malt and nuts. Also some warming alcohol and honey. A bit foamy palate. A basic English strong with absurd price tag (42€).
750 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a copper colour with a white head. Aroma of caramel malts, English hops and some wood. Flavour of caramel malts, honey, strong dry wood, English hops, some tartness and berries. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and a dry, malty finish. Nice, but too English for me.
