VsXsV (1878) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Dark brown/black opaque liquid with medium to big off-white/light tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus, tropical fruit, coffee, some light ash and lots of Citra hops. Really reminds me of a BIPA I’ve brewed myself. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of grassy hops and roasted malt. Medium bodied with medium to high bitterness. Nicely hoppy.

BeerCast_Rich (1840) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 31, 2012
[500ml bottle, Trembling Madness bottle shop, York] Black pour with enormous puffy white head, which sits like an ice-cream float before receding gradually. Aroma of lemon citrus, passion fruit and grape, resin and yeast. Extremely bitter, resinous flavour, lemon and grapefruit. Almost biting hop level on the far aftertaste, finishes very dry and bitter. Not much chocolate in evidence - the BJCP would love this, there’s really no indication of it’s colour on the taste. Very nice indeed [31102012]

Abio (1517) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2012
Dark brown, ok head. Good hopped at both smell as taste, also the citrus fruits and decent amount of spiced. Not bad, a bit of a surprise even for me.
