Det hr var en god men framfrallt intressant och komplex. Smaken br sta toner av karamell och torkad frukt. len r ytterst vlbalanserad och kroppen r stabil, men i slutndan r det nd komplexiteten som imponerar mest p mig.

Malty, spicy taste, caramel, fudge, apricot, almonds, hops, earth, dried fruits, marzipan. Quite robust and sturdy, but tasty. (2012-07-17)

Seffle (455) - Mlndal, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2013
Bottle from Systemet. Rapidly disappering head. Golden amber colour. Very malty with a caramell, almost melassy taste. Feels a bit like a "home brew" but much more classy. Indeed a very nice strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (20133) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting - London. One from L-Dawg. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream cap. Rich, dry and lightly toasted malt aroma, with hints of toasted hay. Medium to big sweet flavor with some toasty bread, straw, faint honey and mild, ripe apple. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with sugary bread, lightly dry bitter hay and mellow caramel. Not bad but very basic. Still, a decent ESA.
