UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 500 ml bottle. Clear darkish amber with a thin white collar and moderate carbonation. Aromas of malt, nuts and floral notes. Taste is a well rounded combination of raisins, plums and a touch of spice with a decent hop bitterness. Full mouth feel with a solid malt backing. Enjoyable beer with nice complexity.

thirstyrabbit (1254) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Nice design. Deep golden body with a beautiful rocky head. Aroma has piney hops. Nice and rich mouthfeel with big bitterness (approaching IPA territoty). Finish is also quite malty and rich with grapefruity hops. Nice but it’s more like an IPA, really.

adster (475) - HUNGARY - SEP 14, 2014
Mézhez hasonló küllemű ital, amely vastag, krémes, tejfehér habkoronával büszkélkedhet. Ez a krémesség aztán az egész története során nyomon követhető mind aromái, mind íze tekintetében. Gyantás trópusi gyümölcsök, tejszínes desszert illata töltik be a teret laboratóriumi tisztasággal, étvágygerjesztő kompozíció. Dzsúzszerű jellegében remekül egyesül a grapefruitos gyümölcsösség üde karaktere és a tejszínesen édes, a nyelvünkön szirupszerűen szétterjedő, fenyővel teletűzdelt kesernyés komlódesszert ízhatása. A teste majdhogynem tökéletes, minden kortynak mondanivalója van, elő-és utóélete teli tartalommal. Kifinomult elegancia és kiadós, harapható ízek, csemege a javából.
