sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2015
Bouteille 33cl partagée avec Tderoeck, merci! Brune foncée, col dense et crémeux sur une couleur café au lait. Doré au verre. Arôme sur une pointe de malt, léger chocolat, caramel et grillé, houblonné perce en rétro ajoutant une belle balance fruitée. Palais est léger en amertume avec une impression de Cascade. Profil malt tirant vers un léger style anglais, note de Maris, cara, chocolat. Fruité rappelant les agrumes, note de pamplemousse, pour un fini râpeux et au caractère anglais. Petite note d’amertume perce en fin de bouche et balance la part belle des malts.

Deep pitch black pour with a thick moussey brown head. The aroma is amazing - orange peel, tangerine and some slightly tropical notes. A very subtle bit of cocoa and a touch of moderate malt character through the middle. Medium bodied but the hops in here are very expressive. Juicy and citrusy with a fantastic balance of malt and hops. Has a little bit of floral character as well. It’s lovely.

marcus (9231) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a citrus and treacle aroma. There is a hearty chocolate malt flavor with dome dark molasses and a hefty dose of hop bitterness.

Skinnyviking (8936) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2013
Draught. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing brown head. Very dark body. Mild sugary coffee citrus cream aroma and flavor with a fair amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Short finish. Alcohol level nicely disquised.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2012
Cask conditioned air dispense Euston Tap London. A black beer with an off-white head. Delicious grapefruity hops throughout. Notes of coal from the dark malts but no sweetness. Beautiful flavours and ridiculously drinkable. Not as robust by depth as some but gorgeous all the same.
