RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 30, 2012
Sweet but very mutely balanced otherwise. A bit more mellow than I was expecting. It’s a good beer, but lacks in bite for me.

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle (duh!). Clear red body, medium beige head. The aroma has nuts, peach and oak. The taste is like a weak barley wine: some cognac, fruits, a great strong ale. Very brittish.

lazucarpcarpatingsMeister7 (39) - BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - MAR 11, 2017
Pivo izgleda nevjerovatno dobro. Tamno zagasita crvena boja u nekoj dobroj čaši prosto mami da je uslikate i pohvalite se na društvenim mrežama. Međutim, nakon fantastičnog početka, pivo nudi razočarenje za razočarenjem. Arome nema. Kad se čovjek baš dobro potrudi - tu je tanjušni miris čarapa. Nimalo primamljivo. Da ne zaboravim - tijelo je moćno. Taman kao i boja i pjena. Ukus - dominira neki jeftini žestoki industrijski alkohol. Kao neki loši džin. Ima malo smole/četinara. Neka neprijatna gorčina. Bocu od pola litre nisam ispio do kraja. Moguće je da je za sve kriv datum proizvodnje. Ovo je pivo tavorilo u boci jače od godine dana.

Onesimus (61) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Mahogany Red with two finger light tan head that quickly dissipated to a ring around the glass. Aroma, plenty of dark fruits with hints of spice and malts. In the mouth it's smooth with medium carbonation and quite warming. Tastes upfront is restrained sweetness of fruits and dandelion and burdock. Balanced by a follow through of slightly pungent bitterness and perhaps some cloves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666, Tanja, Davor and Goran. Clear amber, small off-white head. Dry fruit, floral, perfumed. Sweet, marzipan or cake. Not bad tasting. Medium body, medium carbonation, moderate, sweet finish, light toasty. Nothing special.

TorbenJensen (1490) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2017
780/5000 I sense the a spicy caramel aroma and slightly floral hop aroma. The taste has chocolate malt sweetish taste which is accompanied by fine ripe berry and slightly nutty flavor. Coffee?, although the coffee flavor is said to be very weak. The hops are sufficiently adapted in this ale and stands out as a fine finish that sets a nice edge to this ales sweet tones. The hops are slightly floral (typically British) and contributes to maintaining a malty sweetness in an elegant way. My overall impression is a malty ale with an emphasis great taste and balanced malt which do not compromise with bitterness, but is in good balance in the overall impression. The carbonation is soft and contributes to the good and long aftertaste.
