(Bottle 33 cl) Amber coloured with a reddish glow. Almost no head but lots of impurities. Surprisingly light body considering the alcohol. Fruity, yeasty notes and pronounced caramel from the malt. Very solid hop-bite in the finish. 230998

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A yeasty and inetresting spicy aroma, big head, and easy drink, quite quaffable. Still figuring out the nice sweet side spice, but the yeast was fruity and I am glad I paid up for this pop-top bottle. And yes, I got a pop on opening.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky dark amber with a big white head and some lacing. Spicy nose with some malt fruit notes. Yeasty flavor mixed with a malt base and a bitter hop bite at the end. This is like a light version of the stout which I like a lot. Much more drinkable on a summer evening.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle, bottled on? Dark amber, vivid carbonation, initially enormous white head which nevertheless collapses rather quickly. Rich, sweetish, syrupy aroma also revealing yeast and a bit of brown sugar. Flavour: molasses, alcoholic warmth, walnuts, finishing with a punching, even pungent dry hoppy bitterness. Light tartness. Full bodied, rewarding.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
a mes rate:
im rather fond of this one. its almost like a light version of the fantastic hercule stout from the same brewery. appearance is a usual amber with quite a fierce head that died down eventually. there were a few yummies in there even though i have not poured the last 1/4 inch yet. smells like an amber too with a little more yeast. the feel is lively and more like a darker beer and quite thick. the yeast comes through in the flavour too with a touch of citrus and bitter aftertaste. the 3rd time i have had this and it will not be the last. oh and having just poured the last of it the sediment is fairly heavy and there were plenty more yummies lurking in there!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled 5 month too old: Dark brown, large soft head. A real fine sweet maltyness, nicely balanced with bitterness from the hops. Perhaps a little bit too bitter. Great beer! Rebuy!
