Bottle from Vesuvio, Darlington. Pours chestnut with a cream head. Nice fruity aroma with grapefruit especially. Lots of flavour to this caramel, underlies pine and grapefruit and other citrus flavours. A hint of coffee in there too. Tasty stuff.

Bottle (saveur-bieres). Dark brown. Hoppy nose. Lime citrus, tropical fruits, pineapple. Smooth soft body. Pine needles, green citrus, a soft hint of roast. Finishes soft bittered adn slight dry. A really nice one. Doesn’t feel as roasty as the colour would have you think.

teorn88 (3028) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle from Eebria. It pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is hoppy with fresh tropical fruits, mangos, ripe apricots, pine cones, roasted malts, coffee beans. Taste is medium roasty and medium hoppy, finishing dry and bitter. Notes of pine needles, grapefruit peel, ripe mango, black pepper, citrus peel, hasy and light spices. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, the hoppy side of things is definitely upfront, nice beer

TET (1760) - FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
A very dark brown beer with a weak and blond head. The nose has great tropical fruits, papaiyas and mangos, some pine needles, hint of roastiness. Tastefull. Taste has pine needles, grapefruits, some tropical fruits, some roastiness in the end. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Good beer where the great Axe Edge is dominating, tropical fruits with hint of dark notes.
