cacack (3) - Ohio, USA - JAN 6, 2014 does not count
Week aroma, nothing much to note. Dark chestnut color, thin cream colored head. Very watery body. Balanced flavor, maybe leaning a little towards the malt side, with a slight roasted smoky aftertaste.

allmyvinyl (10165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle at Mia Restaurant, Edinburgh. Clear chestnut brown pour, no real head to speak of. Malty toffee aromas, light hop background. More sweet malt on the taste, if a tad on the watery side. Decent version of the style.

Svesse (8285) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2013
(Cask at White Horse, Parsons Green, London, 24 Nov 2013) Reddish brown colour with brief head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of caramel, dark fruit and toasty malt. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, red fruit, toffee and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty beer in excellent balance. Nice one.

Scopey (13759) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Cask at White Horse. It pours clear deep brown with a tiny white head. The nose is brown bread, earth, toast and wood. The taste is smooth, wood, earth, rather savoury, light toast, brown bread and light smoke with a dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. No real depth and touch thin for my liking. Fairly inoffensive.

Derbeth (839) - Krakw, POLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Bottle. Aroma is rather weak, with caramel, slight smoke, clove and hops. Black colour, small white head, quickly disappearing. Light sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, thin watery texture, flat carbonation. A bit boring.

djoeye (4298) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2013
Brown btl abv 4.2, purchased at Kilpishalli Kilpisjrvi Finland. Very nice look, with its moderate vanilla-white head on a red-wine-coloured body, towards red-brown. Beautiful scents of roasted malts plus dark chocolate. Tastes roasted malts, sweet licorice, flourish feel, some bitter too. Good in the mouth with its well balanced but distinct bitterness. Much lacing inside the mug. At the end chocolate, roasted malts. Overall very tasty and enjoyable. Enjoyed 2013-10-24 at RateMeet with Rune.
