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.

330ml bottle, thanks to Benzai! Pours hazy amber with off-white head and yeast in suspension. Big tropical resin aroma.. taste is mango & pineapple yoghurt, caramel and clean malts. A touch sticky, but to be expected really. Delicious stuff.

Beerconnaiseur (75) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
On tap at De Molen. Murky amber with a dluffy creamy head. Mute soury aroma, rather dull... but extremely pilowy fluffy taste character. Great draught beer.

on tap at braukunst live 2014 in munich. rich shade of ruby red with a fluffy lingering head; aroma shows plenty of caramel and tropical fruits; some strawberry jam flavours, not much alcohol showing, medium citric bitterness. no flaws but feels like it’s missing something

Beware before you buy it: THIS IS NOT A BELGIAN STRONG ALE!!! small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick dark brownish-yellow body. aroma: dark bread, moderate hoppy, grass and pear. if: light sweet moderate bitter. ff: light sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium full body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic moderate alcoholic finish.Amargor bem lupulado (casca de laranja) de IPA, dulçor maltado e com lembrança frutada (laranja). Nada a ver com a classificação de BSA do ratebeer. A presença maltada e o forte lúpulo aliado ao alto teor alcoólico justificam a alcunha de imperial amber do rótulo. Esperava algo totalmente diferente. Nota: 90 skol

330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec) (7:4:7+:4:15=3.7+)
Heavy full malty aroma. Taste magnifies that - tons of malts, a nice level of roast. Woody, hops also good, some zest. Finish lovely, tons of zest, later bitter.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2014
One-third pint, keg at Friends of Ham. Muddy brown coloured body. Naked surface, dotted spots to the glass. Sweet fruity smell. Sweet flavours of caramel, red berries and dough. Well bodied, however, quite easy to drink. Masked alcohol. Fair enough (Leeds 07.07.2014).

330ml bottle. Hazy dark amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Sour, diacetyl, honey in aroma. Sweet, candy, sticky, malty taste. Sweet body. Malty aftertaste. Raw and messy.

Hermod (3145) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2014
33cl bottle@ home. Bottled on 18/12/13. Pours ugly brown, murky, thin white head. Aroma is promising with fruity, citrusy, hops, some bread and yeasty notes, DIPA-like. Flavor has bread, glueish notes, yeast, fruity hops and caramel. Taste is like an old DIPA, sweet, but with some bread as well. Full bodied, alcohol completely hidden. Quite the hybrid.
