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.

TH28 (328) - - MAR 30, 2013
Appearance is deep red amber with creamy tan foam cap. Aroma is deep caramel malt and fruit. Slight hint of poem and raisin. Taste is several layers complex layers of roasted, nutty, and caramel malt but not overwhelming. Sharp hop bite on the finish that balances everything. Nice but of carbonation with a crisp, clean finish. Overall great beer.

Jade (433) - AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2016
Dark honey with an off-white head. Strong aroma of hops, makes me think it will be quite bitter. Strongly bitter. A little too much for me, but I can see why others would like it.

AdolfoCC (97) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 27, 2016
Servida en tulipán. APARIENCIA: de color rubí intenso, se observa ligeramente turbia y ligera actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color beige, de buena retención y burbujas compactas y algunas abiertas al centro. AROMA: notas de caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros, lúpulos americanos de características cítricas. SABOR: de entrada un amargor intenso, atrás notas cítricas de los lúpulos americanos, notas de caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros maduros que llegan a ser un tanto efímeras; en el retrogusto queda ese amargor intenso pegado al paladar, sensación como jabonosa, no llega a ser totalmente astringente pero puede llegar a molestar. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo medio con sensación oleosa en boca, carbonatación media baja. RESUMEN: Una cerveza buena a secas, con una sensación jabonosa en el amargor residual molesto.

Samuel214 (314) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Mörk, mahognybrun i färgen, lätt disig med krämigt brunbeiget skum som lämnar rester på kanterna. Riktigt tjusig. Rejält med kåda, kola, apelsinskal och granskott. Medelstor kropp. Rätt klibbig beska men inte supertung. Ganska välrostade toner, nästan lite lätt rökig och tendens till lakrits. Även något torrare toner, nästan lite aska. Annars kola, kåda, toffee, granskott. Det enda minuset är att kroppen gärna kunde varit något större.
