Ungstrup (34325) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2015
Bottled. A brown beer with a tan head. The aroma has notes of citrus fruits, bread, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, citrus fruits, malt, and caramel, leading to a bitter finish.

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2015
Draught at Randolph Beer. It pours darkest opaque brown with a thick, triumphant light tan head. The nose is fresh, bitter - sweet, cacao nibs, chocolate cake, earthy roast, coffee, umami and touch of dark fruit. The taste is smooth, bitter, dark chocolate, earthy roast, coffee grounds, mocha, toasty, charred wood with a dry, toasty finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Reminds me a lot of Kernel’s dark beers. Well rounded and quaffable brown ale.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Just was not a fan of this. A bit on the watery side, and some medicinal lingering finish to go along with it. A rare miss from these guys for me.

MacBoost (1744) - Penfield, New York, USA - APR 22, 2015
Tap at Hill Farmstead. Light brown pour, slightly cloudy. Aromas of light roast, caramel and a touch of coffee. Taste is roasty and mildly bitter. Finished kind of sweet with a thin body. This is a huge letdown and very pedestrian. Probably the first HF beer I wouldn’t bother with again.

Oh que cette bière est dangereuse... Légère, complexe et savoureuse à souhait, il n’est que trop facile de baisser la garde et d’en abuser. George présente une tête riche, persistante et fière sous laquelle le liquide est d’un brun grillé. Les arômes de malts rôtis, café, vanille et sésame grillé sont fraîches et nobles. En bouche, la texture est soyeuse et le liquide coule avec fraîcheur et délicatesse. Aux notes de malts, s’ajoutent la noisette torréfiée et un houblon d’une fraîcheur printanière qui confère une agréable touche herbacée à cet heureux mélange. La densité est moyenne mais ma satisfaction totale!

Franckg (1179) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Arômes intenses de noisettes. Ceux-ci reviennent en bouche et donne un gout amer très intense. Rapidement, des touches de chocolat au lait et de houblons prennent leur place. L’amertume est forte et sèche et le goût de chocolat persiste sur la langue. Pas la meilleure de HF mais une excellente bière tout de même et une des meilleures que j’ai essayée dans le genre.
