4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It pours a dark cloudy brown .A foamy one inch off-white head forms and slowly dies to a film coating the top of the pint. Sticky lacing clings around the sides of the nonic. The smell has the hops up front with some light caramel and nuts coming more so in as the beer warms. The taste takes all of the previously mentioned flavors and adds a nice clean sweetness with a tinge of alcohol. The mouthfeel is about a medium with a nice smooth creaminess surrounding the mouth and tongue. This is moderately drinkable. Overall, I like this and would come back to it.

Looks like kotikalja. But taste, wow, what a punch. Sweet, bitter and spicy. Pretty tough. Hops indeed.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Poured into a shaker pint. Pours a bronze amber with a light tan head that dissipates almost instantly. Intense resin and pine aromas with hints of grapefruit, caramel, roasted toffee and biscuit. The biscuit aromas become more pronounced as it warms up. Medium to full body with a slightly oily mouthfeel. Bitter on the palate with a hint of roasted sweetness that peeks its head out as it warms up. This is boldly hopped amber through and through with a long bitter finish. A heavy amber.

A great beer to have with lunch, enough about it to taste good, but complements food very well

이블트윈 브루어리-홉플& 7% ABV 보통 몰래 가게에서 빼 마시는 맥주는 꿀맛이어어야 하는데 사람 고문하는 쓴맛으로 점철된 맥주. 하루종일 바로 옆에서 누가 엄청 시끄럽게 모터 소리내며 잔디깎는 맛과 향. 스트레스 쌓인다. 차라리 서던티어 브루는 복잡하게 튀어나오기라 했지. 한병이상은 못마실 맥주. 온리더 스트롱 엠버에일. 홉가지고 끝판 깨려는 경쟁 좀 그만 끝났으면 좋겠다.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cerveja marrom, espuma bege de média duração. Aroma amadeirado, adocicado (caramelo), licorosa, alcoólica. Paladar de amargor médio, reforçando o caráter amadeirado. No aftertaste o amargor prevalece, deixando a boca com sensação de seca. Cheguei a sentir traços de fumo queimado, amargor parecido após fumar um cigarro, mas beeem discreto.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dirty ugly brown with foam pieces on top. Smells like a nice round caramelly amber ale. Decent sweet notes are overruled by an aggressive roasty chocolate-coffee finish, that is a bit overdone. The resulting aftertaste is a bit too dry and tastes as if you brushed your teeth with hard coal. Not bad though, but not my kind of beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A good amber with heavy hops. Pours a bright ruby amber with a thin beige head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is biscuity and caramelized with heavy malts and juicy citrus hops. Great balance with heavy bitterness, lingering astringency and smooth, rich and heavy toasted malts.
