viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Big sucker-punch of sherbet, grapefruit, lemon rind and pine. Then cream and something milder rounding out the edges, fading through charcoal porter vibes to a lasting ipa bitterness. Some dirty muddy note on there too. Tastes very strong, I wouldn’t recommend drinking a full pint of this. Pretty damn awesome.

zacgillbanks (4375) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Dark brown-black in colour, pouring with a large foamy tan head. It has a rich chocolate, pine, citrus and ginger flavour with a creamy tart fruit, vanilla, oak and bitter citrus finish. Nice!

Bottle, 50 cl. Black-brown with a huge frothy beige head. Aroma is hoppy with toasted malts, grapefruits, citrus and hints of licorice. Flavor is bitter-sweet with lots of grapefruits and licorice, leading to a dry bitter finish. Medium body.

Martinhfp (61) - DENMARK - NOV 10, 2012
Served Mikkeller Bar Copenhagen, draft. Apperance dark brown and unclear with no head. Served very cold but after warmup aroma of characteristic american hops, floral and peachy. Taste with notes of roasted malts, coffee and liquorice, nice strong bitter aftertaste, high ibu, ballanced sweetness, I recommend this beer served 8-12 degreesC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
