3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(50 cl bottle courtesy of Papsø, thanks and congratulations!) Pours black with big, tan head. Impressive retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is fresh, herbal hoppy with notes of chalk, toffee and the funky dill/pickles notes of Sorachi Ace. Bitterness is pronounced on the tongue at the first sip but the malts kick in to make it very drinkable leaving only a lingering dryness on the tongue in the finish. Oily texture, medium body and medium carbonation. The flavour is remniscient of the aroma but leands more prominence to the hops yielding a moderately bitter impression with a lingering, dry finish. Well balanced and seductively drinkable like a real secret agent of 25,000 missions. Cheers!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Batch 606: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized, vast, slowly changing and sticky creamy beige colored foamy head on top of a hazy deep dark to black colored beer.
Aroma from the bottle was a clean and crisp mix of hop flowers and liquid liquorice candy.
Aroma from the glass is a bit more outspoken: hops, floral, plant extracts, citrus, lemon, grapefruit, roast, liquorice, malt toast/roast and grapefruit. Nice.
Flavours are a good mix of floral tones, cream, hops, herbs, liquorice, roast, lemon, citrus, grapefruit, plants, herbs, bitter, flowers, grass, caramel, light mocha, some wood roast and yeast.
Aftertaste bitter, hops, flowers, floral, roast, grass and liquorice.
Low carbo, soft creamy thicker mouthfeel, good medium to lightly fuller body and a thick creamy to light oily ish texture.
Delicious, crisp, balanced, clean and very well executed with only 5.5%ABV. Well done!
