fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2008 2008-03-29, draught with randell at Salone della Birra Artigianale e di Qualità 2008, Milan, 7-5-9-5-17=43
Cloudy amber color; creamy head. Balanced aroma. Excellent mouthfeel, smooth, full flavor: malt, caramel, toffee; perfect! With a touch of sweet nuts. The hopping is seducing, never aggressive, even if powerful. Excellent.
It’s one of the best batches, and with the randell it acquires even more interest.

2007-12-28, draught at the brewpub, 7-5-8-5-16=41
Cloudy amber color; creamy head. Nice fruity, hoppy aroma, quite aromatic (a bit grassy and fruity). The flavor is sweeter than maltier, with good hopping, a bit fruity, but less aromatic than usual. The final is well balanced, with an excellent toffee touch and hop. Less impressive than I remembered, but still very good one.

2005-12-26, draught at the brewpub, 8-5-7-4-15=39
Cloudy dark amber color; creamy head. The aroma is malty, with a subtle hop line and lightly fruity. Malty taste, caramel, toffee, hop; very well mixed together. The final is bold, bitter, malty and with caramel.

July 2005, draught at the brewpub, 8-5-9-5-17=44
Cloudy amber color; thick creamy head. Very nice aroma, subtle: malt, light coffee, caramel, light cheese, and nice American hops. Original and malty taste; caramel, sticky, chocolate, malt, extremely hopped with a good bitterness, aromatic (Perle, Styrian, Goldings, Cascade). Long and bitter final. Excellent!

2002-11-10, draught at the brewpub, 6-5-7-4-15=37
Light aroma, some malt and hop. It presents a light but original note of coffee.

2002-09-09, draught at the brewpub, 8-5-8-5-16=42
Hazy amber colour, creamy collar of foam (nitrogen conditioned). Very nice aroma of caramalt. Good body, heavy maltiness, smooth, some sweetness soon balanced by a strong hopping. Heavy palate, very long, malty and of course hopped
