3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the De Molen shop, Bodegraven, Netherlands, 24.09.11 consumed at Woerden campsite sat outside Frank (camper) 26.09.11 Pours light amber, quite hazy, head has now long gone so not sure what it was like. Thick, heavy and loads of boozy marmalade in the mouth, seville orange, citrus with a sweet pithiness, but boozy marmalade keeps coming back. Aroma is quite nice, taste could be better but I think the alcohol sort of detracts a little. A7 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.4

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, enjoyed @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours hazy to clear yellow-golden with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma is surprisingly mild, some mild cucumber, citrus, peach. Low carbonation, very fat creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sharply vinious, sweet, light malty, oranges. Mildly dry. A lot of alcohol that does feel that good. Despite a nice dry and bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, rated 2011-08-19) Hazy golden with a tiny head. Very grassy-hoppy nose with an evident but soft alcohol twist. Very bitter flavor - the hops attack even from behind the malty body and 13% ABV. Full-bodied, astringent palate, well hidden alcohol. Not exactly my favorite beer style, but as an overdosed hop-alcohol bomb, this is excellent. Also very clean, which is rare for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ølbutikken. Pours light amber with a fair head forr a 13% beer. Aroma is malty sweetness, lots of caramel, hoppy bitterness, and alcohol. With these excessively hopped high abv beers, I often pick up notes of liquorice, as with this one. Taste is sweet, bitter alcoholic, all sorts of over the top. The hops are astringent and very bitter, and it’s very harsh to drink. No wonder if this beer was fun to make, but the overall impression is unbalanced and harsh. I like the more subtle style of Before, During and After Christmas
