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.

This is certainly not for the faint of heart, but I love it. The aroma is full of malty goodness, but the secret is after you take a drink. There's nothing small about this beer. It's all about big hops, lots of malt, and attitude. Pours a super dark reddish brown, with moderate lacing on the sides of the glass as you drink it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska från Systembolaget. Klar mörk kopparfärgad vätska med stort fluffigt skum. Doftar karamell och kåda. Kraftig maltig smak, tjära, kåda, lakrits, maskrosbeska. Lite annorlunda men bra

That’s really an aggressive beer as it’s written in its own label, right? So, if you are going to drink it, you’ll need to be prepared to the experience. As a big fan of the Belgian beers, I have to admit that Americans have created a new horizon whenever they’ve started to overload their beer casks with hops. This is so far, the bitterer beer I’ve ever tasted and I’ve loved it. I really wish I could find something like this in Switzerland and I really regret that I didn’t bring another bottle . with me... :( Despite of the advertisement in its cork, in the end, I think myself as a "worthy one" to drink it... That’s very good stuff! I strongly recommend it to the strong ones. ;) A: Pours a deep amber a little bit hazy color. Head is beige and creamy. Medium retention and many lacings left S: Smells like an authentic American IPA. I mean, caramel malts and piny hops T: Great caramel malts and piny, citrus hoppy bitterness. Huge bitterness M: Medium molasses body. Good carbonation O: Absolutely refreshing, tasty, delicious beer [ BA Review @ 11/7/2009 ]

On tap, poured into a nonic glass. A light citrus aroma gives way to candy sugar, then a light coffee and light woody note comes through with some caramel late - some extra points for complexity. It pours a murky red brown color with a lught brown / orange colored head. Thr head consists of fuzzy microbubbles and retains a medium thick ring with dusty, fuzzy surface, and it leaves a decent web lace. The taste is medium high bitter and a medium sweet. The sticky and slick textured beer has a medium full body and soft, fuzzy carbonation. Flavors of burnt bread, pine, and grapefruit membrane come through initially with some light coffee and milk chocolate sneaking in late. A woody and smokey character finishes it amd a burnt / charred aftertaste - maybe some dark chocolate too - is strong and lingers with a touch of coffee grounds and a hint of fruit. Nice subtle complexities to this one.

Pours a dark chestnut coloured body with a medium head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Nice and hoppy taste. Starts like an IPA but without the bitter end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

visionthing (2793) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2014
On tap at Tilt, Oslo. Slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with lots of hops. Pine, citrus herbs and hints of cat piss. Fairly sweet with nice hoppy and fruity flavours and bitter finish. Balanced and very enjoyable. A bit too much on the sweet side for my taste, but still very nice!
