Keg. Hazy dark amber, small white head with dense bubbles. Aroma is rhubarb, caramel. Body is medium, light carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is sweet toffee, dry biscuity malt, herbal, tangy marmalade. OK, but I wasn’t that fussed on it.

Really quite impressive. Big depth of flavour but never overdone despite its 10%. Funky old hops and toffee tell the story, with a touch of fruity sweetness to finish.

Bière from l’ile du malt Amertume longue et puissante en bouche Gout d’ orange et d’ananas façon multifruit Une biere qui reste ronde douce malgré ses 10% alc Note d’alcool bien prononcée sur la fin Une tres bonne imperiale ipa

Moolesen (181) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark amber wit an offwhite head. Yeast and alcohol in the nose and hints of hop. Not as much as I hoped for. Flavour of rich malt (some might think it’s too much). It has not the IPA effect as the double IPA - DIPA. Very full bodied and a long lasting finish.

Renobob (616) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 11, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Bière forte mal équilibrée, on sent beaucoup trop d’alcool à défaut des autres saveurs. Déception.

freretoc (624) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 4, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, couleur blonde très trouble petite mousse peu d’effervescence, une bière qui a surtout un goût de houblon un peu passé pas très agréable trop forte avec un goût de fruit de la passion et banane trop brute !

kingstoni (1491) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle. Hazy copper color with a medium sized foamy white head. Aroma of berries, peach, mandarin and caramel. Sweet and bitter taste with a bitter finish. Medium body. Oily feel.

spacecube (798) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
330ml bottle, pours hazy murky reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel and toffee malt, resiny and juicy citrus hop flavours, orange, pineapple. Packed with aroma, the palate is ful bodied and rich, finish is sweet and bitter but balances well. Puckeringly tangy aftertaste. Very nice.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff juni-14: nydelig aroma med diskrete toner av bringebær. Alle sukker henført, dette er et nydelig øl. Maltfylde, friskhet og en nouthwatering bitterhet - denne har alt jeg trenger for et langt og lykkelig liv. Helsekost. Må spørre fastlegen min om jeg kan ta dette daglig i stedet for Albyl-E. Så får jeg den sikkert på blå resept...
