3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 13-06-14
Dark brown color with reddish hue; huge head. Deep aroma, hops in the front, some fruits, then biscuits and caramel, finally English yeast. The mouthfeel is semi-dry, there is too much carbonation; with strong caramel flavor, dark caramel, touch of roasted malt, and light liquorice; it has a good blend of resiny hops and yeast; the final is a bit spicy.
Lot of character; but also rough.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
At el Raval l de Andorra. Nice honey/copper color with cream beige head. Great balance with some hoppyness and bitterness but still very smooth and easy to drink. Great palate too, just bubbly enough but yet very soft.
A new favorite maybe?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Amber pour, small off white head. Big cereal aroma, breads, slight roast and some nuts with a touch of herbal hops. The finish is lightly bitter, and quite malty, but the malts are light. Nothing is over powering,,its all quite subtle from the bready, lightly toasted malts to the herbacious, grassy hops. A great balance of subtle flavours.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear hazy dark golden, red tint, with an abnormal off-white-greyish head, good retention and lacing. sweetish toasted malts, some specialty malts, carbonic acid, grassy, spicy and citrusy centennial and cascade, pepper. overly carbonated, light body, foamy, balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. obviously a bottle conditioning issue.. for a brew that seemed to be a more than decent slightly hoppy red.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière acajou plutôt foncé, avec une abondante mousse de couleur beurre d’érable. Effervescence générale forte. Le nez est en houblons tropicaux, zeste d’orange, ananas et mangues sont évoqués. Dichotomie d’amertume et de fruité, ce qui en fait une sorte de rousse à la fois fruitée et amère, et non caramélisée. Honnête, correcte, sans artifices inutiles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - 330ml at Mondial de la Bière (Montréal, QC). Hazy amber body with a lasting off-white foamy head. Robust malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and brown sugar hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries malty, oaky, and grainy notes. Ends with a strong bitter/woody finish. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice red with a medium offwhite head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is piny and fruity, pretty pedestrian. Taste is really fruity, moderately bitter and offers caramel flavors along with some citrusy hops. Body is medium, carbonation high and finish was pretty bland. OK
