Pours un unpleasant murky brown. Looks flat. It’s not. The carbo is actually quite present although subtle. Aroma is all oranges and grapefruit, the wife says cut grass. Taste is rich, thick and sweet up front with tangy grapefruit the star. Bitterness is there as well and lingers well beyond the sweetness although the sugar rests on the lips. Full-bodied beer packed with punchy flavours. Shame it looks like mud but I can forgive that. Very good.

harrisoni (14842) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Grumpy Goat Reading drunk at home. Hazy reddy brown colour lasting beige head. Sweetish malt aroma. It does what it says on the tin an imperial amber ale. Dark red fruity malty aroma. Touch of bovril. Good in mouth smooth then a strawberry grapefruit sweetish malt finish. Pretty good.

olio (7344) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 10, 2015
33 cl bottle. Bottled on 18.12.2013.
Pours murky amber color with a large lasting head. Sweet fruits on the nose, some ripe ones as well, yeasty notes, some wood, hints of spices and caramel malts. Sugary sweet flavor, ripe fruits, toffee, mild licorice notes and some yeast. Creamy smooth palate, soft carbonation, mild alcohol burn at the end. Quite pleasant and rich, maybe a tad too sweet though.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
Draught at Pibar, Lausanne
Murky red-amber color with generous creamy head. Strange aroma, but there is enough good malt. Full bodied, round, sweet, malty, with a light fruity touch, a bit earthy in the final.
Very good.

SinH4 (729) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 23, 2015
330ml bottle, bottled 18/12/2013. Dark amber color, very hazy, with hardly any head. Aroma of toffee, dark fruits, a bit yeasty. Taste is clearly amber, but strong: caramel, dark fruits, toffee. Finish is a bit earthy-bitter, but not too much. Low carbonation, very smooth. Lovely, fits my taste profile very well! (I like ambers)

Pas incroyable. Un essai sans plus, la couleur brun foncé est bonne et l’apparence est bonne mais trop de sucre résiduel
