Dark colour with white head. Aroma is oak and hops. A lot going on with this beer. Initial notes of vanilla and blackcurrant, oak, dark malts and then the hops. Great beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 11C. Dark brown with a light tan head. Smells very like Karma Citra - bitter oranges, lychees, mocha. But the toasty vanilla notes are immediately apparent upon a sip, along with some slightly zingy spice notes at the end. The cocoa and slight nuttiness of the normal version are there too. Pretty good and the treatment adds things rather than interferes or overwhelms, but I still would take the normal version over this. But impressive and thoroughly enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black pour with a decent tan head & good lacing. Roast, citrus, cocoa, slightly floral aromas - big aroma even during the pour. Taste is roasty, piney, some citrus, and warm woody, vanilla; starts a little sweet but rounded out with nice bitterness. Cracking good beer - just shades the Karma Citra I reckon

Interesting nose of chocolate and citrus. Taste is a bit on the sour side, for mine. Nicely complex, though. On tap at the Wheaty.

Chocolate hit to start before the floral and citrus comes through. Black in the glass. A sting on the tongue with a sharp sugar finish. Another brew that gets better when allowed to settle. Classy.
