Countbeer (4078) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, vast and slowly changing, beige creamy colored foamy head on top of a deep dark red beer, when hold in the light it appears to be an almost clear deep ruby colored beer. The aroma is nothing like an IPA, a thin mix of caramel, autumnal herbs, brown sugars/molasses, grains, a hint of sharp hop citrus and stingy herbs. The flavours are like the aroma nothing like an IPA: yeast, sharper herbs, hint of hops, bitter, sharper herbs, stingy hops, malts, nuts, caramel, meal, porridge and dusty malts. Aftertaste is bitter with herbs, yeast, wood, malts and (sharper) herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture. I hope I had a wrong bottle, if not, this is not a good IPA, while I had other IPA’s from this brewery that were pretty ok, this beer does not come close to those beers, let alone IPA’s in general. Pity!

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from ABCBeers. Poured clear, with a deep red color and a beige lacing head. Toffee, dark fruits, nuts, spices, honey in the aroma. Roasty sweet taste in the full, almost oily body. Dry, roasty lasting aftertaste. It’s a good winter beer, but could use more hops as an IPA.

MichaelAwesome (3030) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. A really nice one. I mean, just the look is enough to hit the points. But here we also find some berries in the back with a nice citrus-hoppy front. Wonderful one.

McTapps (3030) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks! The beer pours out in a clear deep amber colour with steady low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and nuts. Taste of fresh but mild hops, nuts, spices, citrus, grass and spruce. Light malty-sweet finish. Nice beer.

Amongst the bittersweet red fruit hoppiness there a certain amount of stewed vegetable taste.

sic1314 (2586) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
Poured dark reddish amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of burnt roast malt, dark fruit, bitter hops. Medium smooth body, flavour is lightly rauched, bitter hops, sweet malt, coffee grinds. A bit unbalanced.
