3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nearly black color with a light tan head that goes quickly. Straightforwar grapefruit hops with some citrus and darker fruit notes and light chocolate in the aroma. More toasty in the taste, but certainly remains hop-forward with berries and grapefruit...finishing with light burnt chocolate. Slick with OK carbonation.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, nearly black in glass, huge tanned head. Smells of blackberries, citrus zests and roasted malts. Malty body, some sweetness, but on the lesser side. Distinct roasted malts with some coffee as well. Nice oily feel and quite dry on the palate. Nice bitter finish with berries and some malt bitterness as well. Fat Cat’s black cousin

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Ølbaren. Very dark brown look with a nice light brown head. Lovely Nelson hop aroma of grape and mandarine, i never grow tired of this hop sort. The fresh hops are backed up by some sweet chocolate and caramel along with toasted bread and roasted malts. Big flavor for a normal abv beer, especially the hops bring a strong fresh bitterness but the smooth sweet full rounded palate does add something aswell, especially as the beer warms up. Great beer!

500 ml bottle. 2011 vintage. Pours a very dark brown/red with light persistent head. Aromas of sour mash and pine. Flavours of molasses, roasted malts, funky New Zealand like hops, liquorice and sourdough. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beermerchants.com. A real mix of styles. Deeply dark red, the expectation is malty, but the reality is a strong, grassy, resinous bitter. Very aromatic, with subtle softness on the tongue and a pleasant grapefruit finish - a slight lemon tartness lingers around and some caramel appears late on. Excellent.
