3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Very dark, almost black body with a big, creamy tan head. Lovely aroma of sweetish, dark malt, citric fruit and pine. Flavor is sweet, slightly roasted dark malt, citric fruit, pine and quite bitter with some notes of chocolate. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Very nice, but the hop flavor here seems to be a bit out of balance with the dark malt. The biterness is a bit sharp edged. Still an enjoyable beer well worth a celebration.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge brown head. Clear dark red body with a few floaties and
strong carbonation. Earthy minty resiny aroma with roasty
metallic notes. Dry-sweet resiny earthy roasty taste with minty
notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny minty
pine needle aftertaste with salty roasty tropical fruit notes.
It’s nice, but a bit too fizzy and hoppy. It doesn’t really gel
the way it should. (0.5l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013.
The 50cl bottle pours with a deep dark body that supports a tall tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, some molasses, chocolate, brown bread and then a touch of lime peel. The taste starts with a light degree of dark roasted malts and then it moves into hop bitterness that has a Mt Hood spicy black licorice sensation to it as well as some citrus hop notes. Pretty darn nice as the roasted malts and various hops blend well together.
