fridus (5) - lucca, ITALY - APR 7, 2014 does not count
si presenta con un colore profondo che quasi intrappola la luce, schiuma sottile leggera e mediamente persistente, note tostate e caramellate unite ad una bella luppolatura, leggermente erbacea, il pepe si nota lievemente e trovo che sia un tocco di stile ed un azzardo ben riuscito! una ottima birra sicuramente!

Kosmokrator (424) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2014 Alla spina. Color nero lucido con fragile ma stabile cappello di schiuma beige. Al naso sentori dolciastri di pesca, agrumi, luppolo e caramello; gusto maltato e fruttato che evolve presto verso un amarognolo luppolato e tostato con lievi note di frutta secca e liquirizia. Corpo medio-lieve, struttura leggermente oleosa, effervescenza gentile.

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 17, 2013
from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - bright amber-brown beer with a poor head left; bread, raisins and chocolate in the nose; a good malt backbone, nice balance between malt sweetness and a late bitterness; piney and pepery finish

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2013
Draught@HBF2013. Very deep ambery black colour with a small bown head. Aroma is syrupy, sweet malts, raisins, wood and some toffee. Flavour is fruity and toffeeish with some wooden and mild caramelly notes. Good balance on this one.

FatPhil (8557) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2013
Tap (HBF2013, Saturday)
Super fruity peachy aroma. A bit watery in the mouth. Nice roast. Estery like an English beer, but some beaniness too. Dry woody hops, but not so obvious. Dryness is clear, this does have good attenuation. After the wows other people were voicing, I’m a little disappointed. Not saying 7%, so respect to Elav for crafting this well.

Erasmus_ro (1188) - Alabama, USA - APR 20, 2013
Tap @ HBF2013., rated blind. Pours black with a small, beige head. Aroma is pretty light. There’s roast and some fruitiness, but not a lot. Taste is exotic fruits, grapefruit. Wouldn’t have figured for a dark beer going by the flavor. Aftertaste is roasted. Palate is light with not much carbonation. Still not a style I much like.

Sample @ HBF2013.
Pours dark copper color with a small head. Aroma of smoke, ripe fruits and hops, also roasted malts. Flavour of roasted malts, hops, caramel and fruits. Decent.
