worldbeertaste (1806) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2011 Bottle, Dark Amber colour. Smell of Malt, Caramel, and flowery. Prickly and bitter feel. Rasin, Dark fruit, strong malt. sour aftertaste. The sour aftertaste seems to dissapear as I drink it and the dark fruit taste just becomes more powerful.

4/5 i mörkhet. Luktar humligt och honungsaktigt. Tjock, honungsaktig, humlig och lätt besk i smaken men en fyllig besk eftersmak.

pootzboy (1790) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2011
500ml bottle. Decants a dark copper ale in the glass. Smallish off white sticky cap…laces the glass well. Moderate carbonation. Malty earthy nose with some sweet fruity undertones. Rich full bodied with a soft mouth feel. Big chewy Chrystal malting in front hops sit back but provide fair balance. Mid palate a wee bit of complexity starts with hints of nuts, fruit, fresh sweet buns, treacle, some toastiness. Finish is long and luxurious with hops coming forward with tasteful bittering stinging the edge and back of the palate. An absolutely top flight ale. Rich, malty, satisfying and warming. Not much like a typical ESB, more like a well-crafted rich amber ale or light Ur bock. Probably the best offering from this brewer. The bottle version is softer and more understated than the draft version I tasted in the US.

TaxiDriver (1779) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. The beer smells a little bit malty and bitter, later on also light sweet of bread. The head is medium large, pale beige and creamy-foamy with a normal duration. The body is red-brown. A malty taste, light bitter and weak alcoholic. The body is rather light, very creamy and a little bit oily with a soft carbonation.

sharkydodson (1758) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAY 31, 2015
the aroma is caramel and fruity with shades of plum and lollipop... the taste is rough, caramel with notes of toffee, garden fruits, bisquit and milk chocolate... the aftertaste is sweet and rather dry...

LoFi (1748) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2011
Amber to copper with a nice beige head. Aroma: malty, raisins, earthy, sweet, candy. Taste: candy, earthy, raisins, grass, toffee, sweet malt, medium bitter. Earthy and herbal finish with some grapefruit. Medium-bodied with quite a high carbonation.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2013
Har haft den här flaskan i kylskåpet i säkert ett år. Hela tiden varit säkert på att den skulle vara tjock och mindre god. Men ack så fel

3.5
coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle via beer world. Pours a crisp deep copper with a nice thick tan head. Pinpoint lacing encompasses the entire glass, no quaff rings. Moderate body (light undulation)with malt dominating. Some light butter at finish, Can someone snopes the viability of only brewing on the moons. While I am aware of the increase in soil respiration during differing moon phases, this seems to be no way to run a brewery. Ride yer fekkin brooms.

3.3
Trolleo (1718) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2015
Lovely dark red coppery color, clear, minimal white head. Malty sweet aroma, pleasant caramel taste. Watery, average carbonation. Easy going. //stella
