3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy malt and caramel aroma. Quite a bit of sediment floating in it after the pour with even more at the bottom of the bottle. Malt flavor is blatantly dominant with a slight caramel left on the palate, followed by a warming alcohol feel. Pretty darn good, but at $7 a bottle I probably wouldn't get it again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bold malt aroma. Rich hazy brown body finger thick fine foamed head. Deep malt taste balanced with bitter bite, so well so it gives it smooth sipping quality. Only by it warming your palate does it give away it’s Imperial strength of 12.0% ABV(as per bottle label).

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle poured into a shaker. Dark amber/light brown colour with a thick off white head which lasts to the (bitter) end. Aroma is strong hops (as you would no doubt expect) but less overpowering than other DIPAs there is clearly a lot of malt at work here. Taste is very malt dominated with the hops becoming more evident as it warms up. I served this chilled and the taste profile evolved massively as it warmed. Almost barley wine sweetness with a pine, resinous and grassy hop profile which are in such massive quantities you could hardly suggest it is balanced but all the aspects are here. Very, very good example of the style and wonderfully over the top. Will seek out again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Redish color with little foam. Forest (pines) hoppy notes. Thick mouth feeling, light boozy with a sweet hoppy bitterness. The aftertaste is dry smooth and tart. This beer is very nice, but be careful. This is a trojan beer: you see one beer, but two more are hiding in the alcohol content.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange color with big white head. So much spruces, grapefruit, cat piss. Tastes like a Tannenzapfen in syrup. Huge residual sweetness, oily mouthfeel. Crazy. It’s got it all, but doesn’t fit together perfectly.
