(33 cl bottle courtesy of Douberd; BBD: June 2015) Pours a hazy amber with three finger white head. Good retention and beautiful lace. Aroma has notes of sodapop along with a hint of smoke. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a dry and smoky finish. Flavour is smoky with some bittersweetness. Not my cup of tea. Girlfriend says: "I wouldn’t drink a whole glass of it but ... it’s interesting!"

A brown and slightly orange colour, a head is weak and blond. Looked at full bodied when poured to glass, slow bubbling. The aroma is personal, some tropical fruits, smoke, fructose, feels quite sweet. The aroma is totally weird but still quite interesting. Taste is also quite unique. Smoked malts, spices from rye, some fruits, quite mild bitterness, not too sweet. Strong bodied, as the apperance promises, low carbonation. Weird as mentioned many times. Rye is also quite strong. Not very balanced. Recommendations for the personal beer’s lovers.

BOTTLE 33 CL from dcmchew. Thank you! Look: clear copper body, big tan frothy to creamy head with good retention. Aroma: rich savory aroma. Hops - sweet tropical fruit, some tannic notes, very little resins, some fresh minty notes too. Caramel / fruit marmalade, faint spicy smoky notes. Taste: rich fruity maltiness balanced by hops, a subdued spicy smoky notes that adds some savor and dryness to the body. Clean dry bitterness in the finish.

Very interesting and weel made well balanced beer. In my version, the smoky notes were quite faint but certainly there. As for rye "spice" - not sure I could detect it.

Net zoals de andere bieren dat ik van deze brouwerij geprobeerd heb een bier dat absoluut niet mijn smaak is. Er zijn goede IPA’s die ik lust, maar deze brouwerij heeft die niet

mjs (4640) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2014
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 06/15, at Black Door, 20140906) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had smoke, fruitiness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were smoke, malts, sweet rye bread, fruitiness and and bitterness. Aftertaste was smoky, hoppy and bitter. A rather nice smoky brew but hops were rather well hidden.

Bottle@ahven. Orange, cloudy. Some pines, oranges, rye, just a hint of sort of charred barrels. Full bodied, very ... chewy mouthfeel. Nicely bittered, pine orange finish. It’s not often you come across such a full chewy texture, nice.

El color de esta IPA tienes tonas más oscuros que una IPA tradicional. Buena formación de espuma y estabilidad media. El aroma de su malta ahumada destaca en el conjunto pero de repente aparecen las notas cítricas del lúpulo. Podría parece estraño este conjunto de aromas pero la verdad es que no chirría en demasía, ¿es extraño? Sí, pero agradable y sorprendente. La adición de centeno en la receta le aporta un cuerpo denso y cremoso. EL amargor es de intensidad media pero no permanece demasiado en boca porque pronto vuelve el ahumado para hacerse con el protagonism del retrogusto. Poco a poco te vas introduciendo en un carrusel de malta ahumada y lúpulo cítrico y floral que no puede dejarte indiferente. ¿Sólo te gustan las Rauchbier? Esta es tu mejor elección para introducirte en el mundo de las IPA. ¿Te gustan las IPA? Esta es una buena elección para probar algo diferente. Estamos ante una cerveza tremendamente especial. Solo para paladares atrevidos.

Bottle at the source. Cloudy golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of lightly spiced raw bread. Taste is spiced and bready, creamy mouthfeel. Nice.
