330ml bottle. Pours deep cherry, brown with a small beige head. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, citrus, oak and a touch of whiskey. Sweet, medium mouth feel. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, citrus and some woody oak whisky barrels. Good beer.

Handpull cask at the Blue Boar, Leicester. Dark brown, opaque, not much head. Chocolate, oak chips, a touch of whisky in the aroma. Sweet taste, not cloying but maybe a touch too sweet. Having said this, it’s got good flavour. Long-lasting yeasty toffee note carries to the short to medium finish. Body is flat and oily but that’s not the end of the world. Good beer all around.

the aroma is fruity and caramel with hints of toffee, berries, bisquit and some herbs... the taste is fruity and caramel with notes of berries, toffee, raisin, bisquit and plum... sweet, dry and, a little bit, bitter aftertaste...

Ever-so-slightly hazy brown beer, head disappeared basically straight away having been brown and lively.Light aroma of caramel and chocolate. Taste has those qualities too, with a touch of apple and some earthy malt. Slightly tangy fruit in the aftertaste as well as the caramel which underpins the whole thing. Nothing really jumps out though and it’s a touch watery, but there’s potential here.

YantarCoast (1476) - Moscow, RUSSIA - MAY 9, 2017
330ml bottle from Bochka in Moscow. Pours hazy brown with no head and a tonne of floaties. Aroma is toffee, citrus, biscuit. Taste is caramel, biscuit, light sweet, light bitter. Quite watery.

vinivini (2838) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle. Deep copper colour, small head. The nose is caramel, biscuit, citrus hops. Similar taste. Light body. Light bitterness. OK

GSAP (755) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Mijn notities vertellen: zoet, waterig, karamel, appel, kersen, toffee. Maar dan waarschijnlijk niet heftig genoeg.

Mr_Pink_152 (5423) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2016

mutz (1098) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016
Bruinrode kleur, niet veel kleur. Aroma van mout, noten. Geen specifieke smaak en vrij waterig. Niet zo goed.

gegwilson (3784) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Bottle from flavourly.com. Pours dep copper with a cream head. Mild toffee aroma. The taste is more toffee with light spice. A bit fizzy and watery. Dinkable enough, but nothing special.
