COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: previously brewed at Nøgne Ø, Norway.

Danish: Det er en stout humlet som en India Pale Ale med tydelig bitterhed og en tør finish. Øllet holder 8,5% alkohol og små 80 IBU. Den er brygget på Maris Otter Malt, røgmalt, britiske specialmalte og rørsukker. I både smag og aroma bærer den præg af en af mine favorithumler: Zeus (nogen gange kaldet Columbus eller Tomahawk), der er brugt i kedlen sammen med tjekkisk Saaz humle og alene som tørhumle. Den er lækker at drikke nu mens humlen er frisk, men da den er eftergæret på flasken har den bestemt også lagringspotentiale, vil jeg mene.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Rated on 10-22-2010. This bottled beer has a medium sized light brown head that mostly diminishes, opaque black body and virtually no lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate, malt, earthy, and pine hops. The taste is bitter, dark chocolate, malty, and fruity hops The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. Wow! What a good beer! It is not overly hoppy tasting which is a good thing for this non-hop head! The flavors come together very, very well and this is a beer I could drink again and again and again. It is very worth trying and a beer I definitely recommend. This beer has character!

czar (4531) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
pours hazy brown with a small light beige cap showing some retention and lacing. molasses, brown sugar, piney c’s or alike, resin, pepper, fruitiness - figs and raisins, maple, rye-like spiciness, grass, minerals, few earthy notes. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, sticky and almost cloying, bittering spicy-citrusy-piney finish. almost balanced yet rather sweet for my liking. more than decent.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle: Poured a dark black color ale with a nice large off-white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of bitter roasted malt is quite dominant with some strong dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by dry bitter roasted malt notes with some deep citrus oriented hoppy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. I have hard time understanding how this beer is rated so high. It is an OK version of a style that I don’t particularly like but not sure what really stands out. Also, the Saaz hops are very hard to pick-up in this mix.

Pours black with a dense frothy brown head. Aroma is malt, fruit, chocolate, roastiness and hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit leading to a hoppy finish. Really good.

Sur la capsule est inscrite la date suivante : 09/10/17. Cette bière profondément brune ne fabrique qu’une pauvre petite mousse.

Au goût, les saveurs de mélasse et de sucre brûlé reviennent en force mais ne compromettent aucunement le retour des houblons. Derrière la charge supportée par les conifères, mes papilles notent la présence du pamplemousse et de l’alcool. Au palais, le liquide laisse une impression honorable. La texture vineuse est fabriquée par le mouvement bas des bulles. La finale, qui est verte, fruitée et légèrement résineuse, se veut longue, chaude et amèrement noire.

Bouteille de 500ml. Bière brune foncée avec une mousse brune. Un nez de chocolat et de malt brun avec des houblons américains. La bouche est passablement amère, sucrée et chaude. Une touche d’alcool et de chocolat sur des houblons américains.
