COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Som en rasende drage vil Hoptilicus med malttunge skridt hensynsløst trampe ind over din tunge, hærge dine sagesløse smagsløg med heftige 80 IBU humlebitterhed, hvorefter den udspyr flammende alkohol over din drøbel og din krops mest sårbare bløddele.
Brygget af obskøne mængder pale ale malt, rigeligt med karamelmalt, en smule black malt for farvens skyld, samt det fineste lollandske enkelt-marks roesukker. Maltprofilen er balanceret af den citrale og frugtige Centennial humle og den lidt skarpe, fyrnåleagtige Chinook humle. Resultatet er en stærk, men letdrikkelig ale, der både kan nydes af ballonglas med ristet rugbrød og stærk ost eller i festligt lag med vennerne (med 9% alkohol, kan det dog godt risikere at blive en kort aften).

UXO (809) - CANADA - APR 26, 2015
Pours hazy (first glass) to cloudy (second glass) deep amber with two fingers of creamy tan head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate spotty lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, dark boozy fruit, raisins and liquorice, pithy bitter grapefruit. (7/10) Taste is moderate to high sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium to full body, low carbonation, sweet and syrupy, lingering dry and astringent bitter finish. (4/5) Kind of a hoppy version of a BSDA - combines the dark fruitiness of an Abt with the hop profile of an IPA. Not bad at all, but not an unqualified success - a bit of a kitchen sink of flavours, and not entirely balanced. And definitely not as hoppy/burny/over-the-top as the label promises/threatens: “It will enter your mouth with great fury, burn your tongue with alcohol and hop bitterness and leave you begging for more.” Quite aside from pedantic impulse to correct the absence of at least one comma, and my juvenile impulse towards a lewd joke, that statement is just wrong: the alcohol is warm but not hot, and the hops are big but not over the top. Not bad, and I certainly warmed up to it as it warmed, but ultimately it didn’t get past “good". (14/20)

ogniskowicz (436) - POLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Aromat: powalające nuty karmelu, toffi, kukułek, szlachetnego alkoholu, rodzynek, suszonych owoców, orzechów, do tego żywiczność chmieli i lekkie nuty owoców. Bomba wygląd: brown ale pełną gębą Smak: mocarna rodzynkowa baza, mieszająca się z akcentami toffi, karmelu i kukułek, goryczka wysoka, idealnie kontrująca słodycz. Alkohol wyczuwalny tylko jako delikatne grzanie przełyku. Świetne !

kerenmk (3235) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 7, 2015
Draught at Søernes Ølbar Copenhagen, 16.1.15. Hazy dark red with white film. Hoppy, sweet fruity aroma with some date honey. Sweet, a little honey, a little bun and raisins in the mouth. Syrupy texture, full body, mild carbonation, sweet and fruity finish.

w_adwersarz (349) - Cracow, POLAND - JAN 17, 2015
Barwa jasnobrązowa, jak inka z dużą ilością mleka. Piana obfita, bardzo ładna, gęsta, drobna i zwarta. Do tego pozostawia świetny lacing. Aromat, genialny, słodki słodowy, karmelowy, brązowy cukier, chmiele powalają, żywiczo rodzynkowe, masakra. W smaku słody, karmel, rodzynki, brązowy cukier, żywiczne klimaty jak w aromacie, rodzynki, przed samym końcem goryczka a na samym końcu słody. Piwo jest świetnie zbalansowane, alkohol świetnie zamaskowany. Półpełne, lekko oleiste, wysycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego, goryczka ocierająca się o wysoką, z początku ze względu na słody mało wyczuwalna, ale po chwili daje o sobie znać.

TimE (4112) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Dark brown color. Very malt focused with lots of crystal malt and the body is a bit astringent with not enough hop character. Not bad, but wouldn’t go back to it.

Bottle. Pours dark copper with a big, medium-bobbled head. Aroma of mal, caramel and hops in background - quite pleasant. Beer is full bodied, in taste mainly sweet malt notes with a bitter finish. Alcohol very well hidden - only little warming sensation in the finish. Very good strong ale.
