3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange frothy head, colour is a cloudy mahogany brown / burnt orange. Smells very hoppy caramelized, brown sugar, biscuity, leathery, wood. Taste has a pronounced american ale like note: both malty and especially hoppy, caramel, biscuity piny bitterness; both sweet and bitter side are very much consistent. Almost full bodied sipper, but with a silky and runny texture, quite present carbonation for being 10.5%. Not particurarly original, but that’s a very nice one

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ home. Dark reddish brown, slim beige creamy head. Imperial nose with big toffee, caramel and honey tones along with hoppy fruitiness. Taste is likewise: big malted, sweet flavours beautifully combining with deep hoppy tropical and citrus fruits and a nice bitterness. Great flavours, complex but still balanced. As it warms, it gets more stout-ish with roasted coffee and chocolate tones coming up along with wine-like properties (red fruits, boozy, more dry). Dry, lingering fruity finish. Oily but soft mouthfeel, big body, medium-low carbonation. Very nice.
