3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Paul and James at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels, late on Saturday night (Sunday morning) during the pre-wedding celebration. Pours brown with a thick, off-white foam. Bit of toast and leafy hops in the nose. Decent flavor, medium sweet, with toast, dry caramel, bit of bread, mild dirt and leaves. Medium bodied with average to high carbonation. Mild dry finish, some toasted leaves, light cocoa and caramel. Doesn’t blow me away, but it’s OK. Some lingering dirty, floral bitterness.

Herber und hopfig-malziger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil führt die Malzigkeit, die frisch würzig und hintergründig schokoladig ist. Herb-schokoladiger Abgang mit deutlichem Hopfenanteil, gut! 11/11/10/11/9/11

Bottle at ChrisOs ’Blue Ridge Mountains Of Virginia’ tasting. Red amber colour, thin beige head. Lots of intense high alpha hops. Hops are a bit harsh. Very good hops but harsh. Not much of a brown ale. OK. Needs more sweet malt to balance it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 22oz. A big, dense and rocky head, beige in color, forms over a more or less clear dark amber body. Roasted malts, some sourish notes and a nice hoppyness in the aroma. The flavor has a distinct coffee flavor, along with bitterness, pine cones, some chocolate and and roasted notes. Full-bodied, too carbonated and semi-dry. Mostly bitter finish with chocolate and roasted malts. A really pleasant brown ale. Could drink more of this. Several times. 111112

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A: The beer pours a clear brown color with a tall tan colored head.
S: Smells strongly of burnt rubber. There’s definitely some citrus character to it, so it seems at least a little bit hoppy. Maybe a bit of burnt bread. Just a really off, harsh aroma, though.
T: Doesn’t taste very good either. Quite a bit of rubber on the flavor as well. Some toasted malt and charred malt. A little bit of booze. Maybe some earthy hop notes.
M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: I hope that this beer isn’t supposed to taste like this because it was just awful.
