3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is full of pepper, earthy spice, some sharp, fruity esters and a bit of cereal. Flavor is black pepper, earth, floral and planty notes and lots of doughy yeast. Medium body with a velvety entry, leading to a slightly chalky, but still creamy finish with a light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and noticeable black pepper heat that lingers and warms the throat and stomach a bit. Good, but not really much going on besides the pepper. I really wish I would have though ahead and bought a nice juicy ribeye to accompany the rest of this bottle. That seems to be the best use for pepper heavy beers.

Oct, 2013. JDW. Soft blandish malt with soap notes and some pepper (hah!) Some faint honey. And odd and unattractive beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Pfefferkörner, dieser Geruch sticht sehr hervor und lässt somit andere Aromen kaum durch. Geschmack malzig fruchtig, zunächst nur leichter Geschmack nach Pfeffer, im Abgang hält sich dieser Geschmack dann ziemlich lange.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Peppercorn to the fore; a little lemony; some cheesecloth- simple overall but pleasant. Appearance: Translucent honey gold with a billowy off-white head that dissipates into a whipped, foamy cap. Flavor: Peppercorn accompanied by a little honey sweetness underneath; honey gives way to a little lemon/light floral notes toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, lively carbonation, lingering peppery finish. Overall: Actually quite enjoyed this; would be lovely with (not fried) fish, and I’d wager a nice, herbal pot roast with some goat cheese.

Bottle at Hoppy Loft. Golden colour, clear, small white head. Aroma is lightly peppery, bit fruity, nice light graininess. Taste is good, pretty subtle black pepper, but it does linger and becomes more prominent as the rest fades. There’s other stuff there but I am struggling to pick it. Definite belgian feel, possibly with the body. Grainy bread. Good stuff. Maybe a bomber was too much but it makes me feel like I have eaten, so could be a good thing.
