Fat citric and haylike hops that go awesome with the roasted malts in the mouth... bitter and fresh fizzy carbs and a big complex finish.. roasted with some caramel... and also a big dense head

Bottle. An impressive big fresh hop aroma from the moment I started to pour. Hops and roast harmonise nicely in the flavour. Good stuff.

leebotton (312) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bitter coffee aroma with a dusty spice and slight metallic quality. Very fine beige head. Flavour is big on the roasted malts with a zingy fruit citrus accompaniment. Lots of bitterness building up and great thick wholesome mouthfeel.

Countbeer (5316) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle (33cl): Served in a shaker at 13 degrees Celsius: Medium sized beige head. Deep dark black brown beer. Aroma is incredible yet smooth and not exaggerated hoppy with some nice roasty tones. Very well balanced! Flavour is more or less the same as the aroma but than with more fruit, bitters, resin, some sweets, little pine tones and floral tones. Aftertaste is a mix of bitters, herbal and floral tones, light grassy, very hoppy and a toast sprinkle. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Serious delicious beer!
