loseratheart (110) - USA - MAR 9, 2007
Poured deep amber with a smallish light tan head. Aroma of lightly roast malt (sweet), some yeast and bark notes. Taste is again somewhat sweet mildly roasted malt, but with a surprising amount of hops and even tannin-like bitterness - fairly balanced, not a long linger and the bitter lasts longer than the sweet. Smooth, somewhat lively, but unmemorable on the palate.

DrNosha (1896) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2017
0,5l Flasche. Kräftig dunkel glänzendes rotes Bier mit hellem flüchtigem Schaum. Es riecht überraschend stark nach Alkohol. Rum, Holz und Malz. Angenehm reduzierte Kohlensäure. Im Geschmack bitteres Malz, Rum. Im Abgang Schokolade.

demannu (421) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Malty aroma with slight fruit notes. Taste is well balanced overall. A little sweet, just enough hops to balance, nice fruity character. Light bitter drier finish. Thin medium body with good carbonation. Simple but drinkable beer.

Bottle. Dark Brown in colour. Malty; roasty malts, caramel, toffee, hint of chocolate. Fruity; dark fruits. Some grassy hops. Sweetish roast malty throughout with slightly burnt taste. Moderate bitterness in the finish. (2014-11-08)

Senka (1076) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 3, 2017
50cl just now, tap and several bottles over the last decade. Wonder how it is still not ticked. Latest bottle is kind of Halloween themed, and is slightly simpler than typical batch. Still feels like an ESB, but is thinner, more bitter and more carbonated than usual. Serve above 10C.

500ml bottle b/b 05oct17, English pint glass. Ruby amber, tan medium retention head, good lacing. Fruity, plums, toasted malt aromas. Creamy sweet, capuccino, biscuit, petit four-like taste, low bitterness and carbonation. Mild creamy cool ending, high drinkable beer.

Fules (965) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 27, 2016
Közepes, tartós, bézs hab, sötétbarna szín. Enyhe, karamelles, malátás illat, némi gyümölcsös komponensekkel. Karamelles, enyhe kávés alapíz, fűszeres aromával. Könnyed,enyhén szénsavas és keserű. Iható, de nem jött be.

labeerinthum (663) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 20, 2016
Bottiglia. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č flebile e la persistenza olfattiva č sufficiente. Il cappello dalle bollicine medio-fini e dalla carbonazione media č di schiuma abbondante ha una discreta resistenza. La consistenza del liquido č limpida. Le bollicine sono poche e di media grandezza. La carbonazione č praticamente piatta. Il colore č ambrato rossiccio carico tendente marrone. Il corpo č pieno. La struttura č cremosa. Il dolce č medio e l’amaro č medio: non si surclassano. L’intensitŕ gustativa č normale e la persistenza gustativa č sufficiente. Il gusto č piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di birra beverina. Il finale č dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto č intenso. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di caramello, miele, cioccolato e frutta.

A very nice ESB/Old Ale. Tasty and accessible, with strong malts and a very nice mouthfeel.
