Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow with a bith white foamy head. Mainly some hoppy tones in the nose, such as pine tree, citrus. All weak, but present though. Nice full bodied beer with some subtled hops in the finish making this dangerous good. Very pleasant beer.

Pretty gross, but an interesting tick. Has that supercharged sweetness/booziness I expect of Euro strong lagers, but it’s this weird medicinal flavor that I cannot take more of. Worth the 3 bucks or so I spent, if only to remind me how much I hate this style.

Bottle 33cl from Henrik thanks, a cloudy golden beer with medium head. Nose is fruity, raspberries notes and fresh oranges. Aroma is sweet, medium malty, nutty and very fruity on orange and apple touch, kind of diacetyl. Finish is bitter with a long duration.

SVD (1137) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle thanks to Countbeer !, Best before date was May 2013... dark cloudy beer with a medium white head, aroma is strangely enough some liquorice, a trace of hops, taste is buttery and slightly bitter, don’t kow if this was supposed to taste like this but it was drinkable.

Bottle shared with Benzai at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Yellow color, small white head. Aroma has malts, hops and citrus. Tastes about the same. Medium carbo and body.

Quite similar to the normal Nobel, just with a slightly different touch due to the Bramling hops.

DavidWoodruff (433) - Windsor, California, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Pours a hazy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus and spice. Malt , spice and alcohol and wood. Very different from any imperial pils I have had - much stronger and has some fruity ale-like components.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts strong, intense spicy, fine hoppy, dry background. Also some alcoholic-woody notes. Finish a bit unbalanced, fruity like lemon and grapefruit. Not too drinkable. Okay.
