Smells of alcohol, fruits and sugars with a deep red color in the glass. Malt at first taste with a strong hop backbone. Definitely a potent and tasty brew.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep red almost brown with medium, densed, ligh brown head. The head retention is not co bad, as well lacing. Heavy malty aroma - mainly caramel and toffee. In the second row some medium fruity and piney notes, but partly covered by heavy malty profile. The taste is highly bitter, the real hop bomb. The bitterness is long and intense, little balanced by malty sweetness. Full body, sticky and oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Alcohol warming is quite recognizable.
