An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

ContemplateBeer (1501) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle dated 03/08/2013. Aroma: Butterscotch liqueur, orange marmalade, boozy and hot overall. Appearance: Unfiltered copper with bubbly white head. Flavor: Matches the nose; brute force in terms of alcohol. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: A bit unrefined at this point; may round out with age.

Steve_0 (2532) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle at the parentals with Nik da Sneak. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head that quickly dissipated. Fruity, lightly spicy, dark fruits, a touch of pineapple, orange peel, caramel, bready, and doughy aroma. Taste is slightly vegetal, caramel, bready, black pepper, dark fruits, floral, sweet malty, and grassy with a lightly spicy/bitter finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Decent, but nothing to get excited about, although, you can easily get buzzed quick off this stuff.

Abijen (1336) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2013
Pours a golden beer with a good white head. Way to sweet. Not nice. I hoped for more.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
Ambrata con molta schiuma che scompare riscaldandosi. Aroma fruttato (mela, appena versata, poi uva bianca ed infine emerge la banana) alcolico, e malto. Ingresso in bocca carbonato, dolce, di nuovo la fruttatura la fa da padrona con le stesse note riscontrate nell’aroma. Il tutto è riscaldato dall’alcol che di sicuro non fa la figura del timido in questa birra. Finale migliorabile con un pò di maturazione probabilmente. Senza pretese.

beerandbeyond (656) - ISRAEL - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle sample. Clear amber with a nice white head. Fruity nose (grapes) with some yeast. Sweet flavor of muscat, malts and low bitterness. Medium bodied and lively, so so.

kerenmk (2164) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Dancing Came. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Light tea colour, clear, no head. Raspberry, a little sour aroma, then sugar candy. Sweet taste, a little honey, candy too, nice. Light body, ok fizz, long finish. Sticky, but nonetheless I like it.
