COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha’s used to create this monster. More IBU’s than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil. 112 IBUs

Garlic_of_Doom (626) - SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle Amber with a huge creamy head that rests down to a ring. Aroma has loads of pine, herbs, caramel malt, and plums Heavy caramel malty taste, fudge peppery with lots of spicy herbs and pine, heavy herbal bitterness. Full body, soft carbonation, velvet smooth mouth feel Quite tongue numbing bitterness in the after taste, a bit warming as well
You’re a Barley wine in disguise, oh yes you are...

ansalon (2846) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2016
Pours semi clear dark amber with a quite large foamy off white head. Aromas of resin, hay, caramel, tropical fruit jam, ripe apples, pine cones, dew grass. Taste is sweet with a heavy malt presence and intense fruity notes. Mouthfeel is oily and full bodied with medium carbonation. Very good.

Poured from bottle, slightly hazy dark amber with small off white head. Aroma is complex with notes of caramel, dried fruit, marmalade, resin. Taste is massively bitter with a generous body and long bitter finish. Great IIPA, though a touch heavy on ABV.

SvanteL (257) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad, disig med fluffigt gräddvitt skum. Doften ha en stadig maltbas och ovanpå den kommer aprikos, pomerans och tallbarr. Smaken börjar med malt- och fruktsötma, lite pomeransmarmelad, men massor av tallbarr gör sig snabbt påminda och det hela tona ut i en rejäl beska med det vita från grapefrukt. Munkänslan är mjuk och rund och lite tjock. En häftig TIPA som tack vare en stor maltighet inte blir för humledominerad.

pilsnerrogge (2797) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2016
Bottled:
Pours deep amber with a large head.
Aroma is toffee, shampoo, pine needles and alcohol.
Thick and sticky mouth feel.
Taste is pine needles, toffee and hops leading to bitter, boozy, warming finish.
Not a bad beer, but was 12% abv really necessary?

tiong (6380) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2016
355ml bottle from Alko. Bottled 05/10/16. Pours dark reddish orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of hoppy alcohol fumes, loads of resinous notes, chewy caramely malts, toffee, pine, ripe fruits and hints of citrus. Taste is resinous, bitter, dry and chewy caramely malty with some toffee, pine, citrus, grass and tropical notes. Finish is warming, lingering bitter, sweetish, resinous, caramely and malty with loads of grassy hops, pine, fruits, chewy toffee and hints of alcohol. Quite massive, but ABV is pretty well hidden.

Idiosynkrasie (6303) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2016
355ml bottle. Milky, amber-ish ruby colour with average to huge, thick, creamy, mostly lasting, sulphureous head, excellent laceworks. Sweet-ish, caramel malty aroma, condensed hoppy fruitiness has notes of cherry, orange and liquorice, orange liqueur. Taste is initially sweet caramel malty with a touch of cherry, then the 112 IBUs come in, the result is a prompt but fugacious swell of flavours, more fruitiness, cherry, orange, more presence of caramel malt with a touch of almond, all easy erased to give way to a long lasting, bitter finish. "Big fuss, little taste" in a way.
