Thanks Doug! Batch 572. Dark caramel in the glass, thick, dense with a slick sticky tan head. Earthy topsoil hoppy blended aroma. Dank earthy leafy hops everywhere, subdued over time, not oxidized, just relaxed.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2009
Bottled at Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a small off-white head. Rich and sappy aroma of pine-needles, resin, black-currant and caramel with touches of cookies, caramelized sugar and grapefruit. Full-bodied with notes of resin, dried figs, pine, oranges, burnt sugar, caramel, over-riped pears and grapefruit. Long chewy medium-bitter finish of grapefruit, resin, caramel and figs. Really tasty stuff but tastes more like a west coast style US Barley Wine.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Bottle from De Bierkoning: Pours a slightly hazy dark copper amber with a small froth of cream-colored head. Aroma of resiny grapefruity hops and some lightly sweet toasty caramel maltiness. Body starts with a rich caramel malty fullness and a good balance of juicy citrusy hops before a crisp bittersweet, slightly warming finish. An enjoyable double IPA that has good hop flavor, but could use a fresher hop nose.

GV (18) - , NETHERLANDS - SEP 16, 2009
Very dark beer which looks more like porter (or even stout) than IPA. Nice hops smell, and even more hops flavour in the mouth. Very well balanced bitterness, maltiness and alcohol. Long bitter and hoppy afertaste. I love that hops flavour and the balance - definitely, one of my favourite beers.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Red wax capped 33cl bottle filled May 8, 2009 and consumed 4 months later. Bottle #98 of 1248. Pours a hazy, dark, reddish-sienna color. A thick and lasting head of clingy tan foam drapes ultra-sticky splatters of lacing that coat most of the glass. The aroma is massively resinous and very piny, with a green "wet" hop feel, grass, and grapefruit notes. The underlying malt base is of toasted toffee, dessert bread, and faint dark fruits. Flavors show the same, with piny, grassy, resinous hops lending substantial bitterness, coming together beautifully with the burnt toffee sweetness. It’s quite tasty. Big and rich on the palate, there’s a certain yeasty dryness up front that transitions to a semi-sticky, ultra-hoppy finish. Damn good imperial red. Sort of a slow sipper, but tasty all the way.

trapez (1511) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle no. 244. Raisins, ripe fruits, amarillo hops and caramelin aroma. Unclear brown colour with large beige head. Very nice bittersweet flavour, a bit spicy. Dry bitter aftertaste. Nasty name but very nice brew.
