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.

madsberg (10111) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2004
Bottled: Fantastic burgundy colour. Brownish dense head. Hops, malt, alcahol and light cocoa notes in the aroma. Hops, swetness, fruit in the flavour. Complex and balanced. Nice long bitter finish. Intense beer. Thanks again to raindog.

rlgk (10047) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2005) Nice shiny dark amber with a small brownish head. A bit maltyand fruity at first then it turns clearly hoppy. Very hoppy dry flavor, some pine and grapefruit. Even more hops and bitterness in the long finish. Lovely, but not a beer you drink alot of in one evening...

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
3rd LCRBM. Earthy, oily, citric hops in the aroma. Oily, very hoppy flavor. Red berries and lemon. Long raw hopbitter aftertaste. Doesn’t leave room for much other flavor, still a likeable beer.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Gravity pour at Churchkey. Labeled as dry-hopped/Simcoe. Clear copper, three-bubble head, no carbonation. Aroma of smoke, oak, bourbon, flowers. Taste has caramel, a smoky edge and a bitter finish. Great character. Easily the best beer of the night.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2008
Bottled, many thanks Ian for sharing this. Chestnut with dying head. Unbalanced, bitter beer, pushes a dry hard unsophisticated hop to the fore with no refinement. Sharp, almost medicinal with a bite of alcohol and a touch of bath cleaner. Not a pleasant beer to drink or relax with. Poor side of middlling.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2007
a hazy reddish ale with a thick light moka head. A pleasant vinous aroma, with carmale notes, and funky floral hops, and light coffee notes. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt, torrefied coffee, nuts and floral hops, citrusy. A good classy ale. Bought at Bessette’s, Canton, NY. Tasted Feb. 2007 and many times before.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 18, 2005
Bomber poured a clear dark copper with a small amber head. Aromas of lime, a bit of carmel, and pine. Palate was medium bodied and resiny. Flavors of citrus, and carmel with a dry, bitter, astringent finish. I hear it gets better with age,I’ll have to stash a bottle away for a couple years and see if it improves.
