3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours an almost clear amber golden with a dense and creamy off-white head leaving laces. Full fat aroma hoppiness. Quite full-bodied with lots of sweet caramel malt, but also some not completely pleasant phenol accents and some spicy, herbal notes that combined with the sweetness gives the beer a cough syrup like medicinal character. Bitter finish with a distinct alcohol burn. 140608

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 2009-11-27, cask at Lord Nelson, Copenhagen, 9-4-8-4-17=42
Cloudy amber color; thin but persistent head. Interesting aroma: caramel, cheese, finally fruits. Good mouthfeel, smooth because of the low cask carbonation, with good caramel flavor and some sweetness; fruity hopping. Very pleasant.

Hazy amber color, thick head. Aroma of hops, partially fruity, and caramel. Good body structure, with a strong toffee flavor and strong bitterness; the hop qualities (some fruity character and the resins) show mostly towards the end. There are no more the traces of a fermentation/maturation issue as last time I tried it, but the yeast presence is still too noticeable.

Hazy amber color, creamy head. It’s a good and solid IIPA, with a very good sweet toffee flavor and a quite strong body; also the bitterness is quite bold; but the fermentation process has to be improved, as there are strange traces here and there... (esters, diacetyl?)
