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

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2008
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruits, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly spicy finish. The body is a bit thin.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Bottled (from beerplanet.eu). Slightly hazy amber colour with particles floating around, quite a big white foamy head as well. Had a bit of preassure, so it tried to avoid getting drunk, but I was faster this time (due to BBE date in 2009...). Aroma is toffee, mild alcohol, caramel malts, some yeast, and spices. Flavour is quite similar. Very nicely balaced. Long toffeeish and quite sweet malty aftertaste as well as some alcohol.

Hazy golden color; thin creamy head. Some aroma of Belgian yeast, beans. Sweetish flavor, some malt. Not very exciting, but pleasant.

TBone (16163) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
Bottled 330ml (Beer Planet, BBE 2011)
Dark amber color, steady off-white head, floating yeast particles. Fruity apricot, red currant and hints of white pepper and grains in the nose. Medium to full bodied. Malty and fruity with peach, banana and berries, some alcohol. Anyhow quite one-dimensional for being "a grand cru" brew.
