ThreeCats (605) - ISRAEL - JUN 26, 2012
Aroma of cascade and more cascade, dark bronze color. Carbonated and bitter, but surprisingly light. Grapefruit flavors and surprisingly short palate. Very drinkable.

Tap at Gar Eden. Dark red/brown with small golden creamy head. Aroma is pine, citrus hops, bit of roastiness, chocolate creamy. Taste is very nice, chicolate, lots of bitterness, grassy, citrus, herbal, coffee element, boozy burn. Really good.

wyzzywyz22 (2036) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Draught, 23 Club, Liverpool. Dark brown looks with a smallish tan head. Piney hop, citrus, choc and a hint of roast present in the beak. A similar yarn unfolded in the sweetish flavour with some very tidy hop bitterness. Extremely drinkable and moreish. Great stuff. Meow.

330ml bottle from The Wine Emporium 231213. Easy drinking this one, gives down well and doesnít strip your palate. Nice and hoppy.

first thing - a really nice bottle and label, it stands out. surprisingly, the beer isnít black, but dark-brown - but I think it can be the case with CDAs. the best thing about this beer is the aroma, hoppy, with lots of esters, it comes out really nice. the taste is also very hoppy - not only in bitterness, which is quite high but very noble and short, but also in the taste as such. Itís really enjoyable. foam is nice, too. drawbacks? a bit too thin, I think it would be better with a slightly more ífullí body. a bit soury too, but itís not a problem for me - itís got this estry-fruity character which not everyone might like, but for me itís great. a good beer with a fabulous aroma.

cardofab (229) - Teramo- ITALY, ITALY - MAR 17, 2012
Colore marrone tobido, schiuma infinita non compatta ma durevole, al naso Ť veramente notevole con note di luppolo e malto tostato, leggermente fruttata e resinosa. In bocca Ť equilibrata, amara e ben luppolata con note leggermente resinose e tostate. Ottima.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Draught at Eataly, Bologna
Black color, or very dark mahogany, with creamy head. Very nice hoppy aroma, still fruity, with some caramel. Mild flavor of roasted malt, with good hopping; the body structure is good, but getting drier at the end.
Fresh and very good, more balanced that most other beers in the style.
