COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Bottiglia. Colore ambrato carico con un cappello di schiuma di 2 dita fine e persistente. Aroma maltato, caramello e luppoli. Al palato attacca in maniera dolce per essere poi sostituita dall’amaro dei luppoli. Corpo molto pieno e finale molto lungo. Ottima

Lawger (267) - SWEDEN - JUL 10, 2016
Fresh can from Stone Germany. Pours a big dark chestnut with light khaki head. Roasted, nutty aromas with some herbs and spices. The palate is medium bodied, towards the sweet side but quite balanced. The finish is pretty long with an intense bitterness which only grows as the beer warms up to room temperature.

65cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a chestnut brown with a two finger light tannish head. Aromas of caramel, vanilla, sugar candy, bread, milk chocolate, roasted nuts. Taste: Absolutely delicious! Caramel, vanilla, burnt toffee, toasted bread with marmalade, roasted hazelnuts, fudge, roasted malts, milk chocolate, sugar candy, spices, coffee, haagse hopjes (Dutch caramel/coffee candy). Medium carbonation. Very, very creamy and malty mouthfeel. Medium to full body with a long somewhat dry and bittersweet finish. This... is an absolute delight!

Pours dark ruby. Aroma: Toffee, caramel, earthy & grassy hops. Taste: More toffee and caramel, bready malt, bit of spice followed by a biiiiig bitterness. Overall: Now that its finally in Europe, I think its been a bit overhyped by our brethren overseas. Still a nice ale.
