3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Clear brown with small, dirty white head. Nose : strong tart and booze, citrus fruits. Spices and esters. Sip : quite thick body, low carbonation and oily texture. Sweet tart with warming booze start, develops dry flavours of spices and herbs, finishing on bitter hops mixed with long lasting spicy notes. The beer develops flavours reminding me a cough medicine. Each sip this impression is getting stronger. Strange one.

Pours light clear amber with one finger foam cream head. Aroma sweet grass hops (cascade hops). Bitter start seeetish grass middle. Bitter end. I love Flying Dog, but I found this beer boring. Anyone who wanted to make a high hops beer could do similar.

Bottled 0,33L - .
Elegant reddish amber color, much fraught and charged aspect with a medium bubbly presence. Very creamy and foamy head of long long resistance. Malty and alcholic nose, pleasant rumors of cask, cellar, clear mildew, aged yeast. Charged and solid body, very perfumed and aged palate, notes of caramel, roast resin and cellar. Good sweetness with an arid tip on the end. Very good strong beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. The double dog pours a clear orange colour with a two-finger bright frothy head. Fruity and spicy but also alcoholic aroma of hops, mainly pine and citrus fruits and some maltiness. It canít really hide its 11,5%...Taste is alcoholic, particularly in the aftertaste, as well as spicy and fruity. But the alcoholic taste just dominates everything, which impairs the generall (positive) impression. Medium body, fizzy carbonation and bitter finish. Interesting brew that is spoiled by its severe alcoholic taste.
