Bottle from A Tutta Birra, Milan, bb 11 Apr 2014
Beautiful amber color, clean, with medium sized compact head. Delicate aroma of caramel, candi sugar and fruits. Strong mouthfeel, with caramel flavor, moderate sweetness, relatively strong bitterness, some hop resins, but also a dusty and earthy final that is a bit hard.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly yeasty but well hopped nose with lemon cheesecake notes and that distinctively Belgian tang. The flavour adds more balance with the hops almost beating the aggressive yeast into submission. This is like a conurbation of violent tempers snarling at each other from opposing corners of a room. The finish is long and malty but the overall impression is of someone taking a trappist triple and swearing at it for a few decades until it comes out fighting. That said, I quite like it.

Euston Tap, 16/11/12. Dark, Belgian-styled double IPA. Hazy, light brown. Good, off-white head. Light carb. Aroma is very fruity, funky/yeasty, "Belgian". Taste is sweet, lightly tropical fruit, bit yeasty, distinctively Belgian. Lightly perfumey. Bit banana yeast. Hops are just a light tang in the background, behind complex yeast flavours. Finish is estery fruit, light sweet. Body is mid, sugary, soft. Good, interesting take on a Belgian ale. Hardknott are doing well.
