COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a beautiful summer night in July while peaceful Danes rocked at Roskilde Festival and sipped wine in their picturesque summer retreats, an apocalyptic tidal surge flooded the famous Řlbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer – Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the heroic bottles that didn’t make it.

In short: A roasted, somewhat resinous and strangely “meaty” burgundy ale. Something wrong here…
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few weeks after purchase, as fresh as I Evil Twin can be in North-America.
The look: Cloudy burgundy body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention.
In long: Nose has big toasted sweet barley, some hops resin. Taste is sweet toasted barley, burnt straws, hard candies, light notes of nutmeg, tree sap, resinous hops. Strong bitterness coming from the resin and roast. Also, the whole time I was drinking the beer I had an annoying “roasted meaty” sensation that was somewhat reminiscent of a BBQed red meat, not something I’m looking for in a beer. This was a very tasty beer but this one didn’t work for me at all. Not sure if I got a mistreated bottle but this beer was just wrong. At the end I drank the whole bottle but I was very tempted to drain pour some of it. Meh… I rarely open a beer I don’t intend to finish and I rarely start writing a rating I don’t intend fini

Light cola color, huge head, fragrance of a belgian but no bite, malty roasted flavors with just enough hops to make a great finish.

[Bottle] Pours deep brownish amber with a small beige head. Aroma is very nice--brown sugar, raisin, prune, and big nuttiness. Quite a bit of bitterness in the taste, nuttiness again (hazelnut), toasted malt, some underlying juicy grapefruit, and another fruit I can’t peg. I like it. Good mouthfeel, long finish. Overall, this is an outstanding amber, and all around a very enjoyable beer.

D’ampolla. Color marró clar, escuma també. Aroma de llůpol, tocs de regalčssia i fins i tot alguns tocs torrats. El sabor és amarg, lleugerament picant. Bona cervesa perň podria ser millor.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Poured a hazy brown with a quick tan head that left a light lace. Aroma of roasted malt, fruit, and a hop background. The flavor found caramel, chocolate, roast, and a hop backing. Medium body that initially had a roast aftertaste that turned to a mild hop aftertaste as it warmed.
