2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours brownish, medium carbonated beer with tainted white head.
Heavy aroma on the nutty parts and lots of sweet, maybe little pine and lemony window wash. Taste is a huge bags of nuts, filtered and compressed with chunks of brown sugar and normal cubes. Very sweet, indeed too sweet for me. The bitterness level is nice!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is one should think off when drinking an DIPA. It's taste is pure good nutty malts with an undeniable taste of caramel. The hops are the true winner with being bitter but overpowering. This is one of the best

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Cloudy, light amber coloured, small loose head, sweet raisins - a.k.a as English X-mas cake - in the sweet (!) nose, moderate to solid bitter hoppy background; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; lingering dry hoppy finish with - again - some christmas-cake around. A drinkable IPA, but pretty unusual.....

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with, and courtesy of Andrew. Pours a murked out, deep orange amber body with some sediment. Aroma is total malt takeover. Mouthfeel is unbalanced with the malt and sweet breadiness dominating what little hop flavor remains. Light yeast notes in the finish along with a mild bitterness. Would love to try this presumably fresh and on draft.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
kleur: oranje/amber, niet helder, mooie niet geheel witte schuimkraag.
geur: fruit (grapes?) en gras-achtig
smaak: gebrand mout, fruit, en gras. Redelijk bitter in afdronk.
De verschijning en geur was meer belovend dan de daadwerkelijk smaak.
