COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Draft at Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco. Pours a cloudy copper color with a rich, white head. Interesting, citrus spices that hang around during the aroma. Wild, wild roller coaster ride of flavor. Citrus, dry, wet, everything is going on here. A little sour bitterness at the end. All ini all, a freaking amazing brew.

FatPhil (12737) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 750ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga)
Opened with a worm. Nice orangy red, some haze, increases down the bottle. Frothy head, settles to a ring. Spicy aroma, Some citrussy aspects, but a pleasant malty backbone too. Extremely refreshing palate, carbonation quite high, and makes it lighter than 7.5% would imply. Nice malts though, there’s a bready backbone here that’s not been lost from the souring. Spiciness is just right, hint of cinnamon, and the hopping is perfect - it even leaves a bitter tingle. Late finish has just a bit of cinnamon burn. No sign of 7.5%, I had it as a sauna beer and it was positively refreshing!

Lilja (2505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2016
Ölföreningen 2015. Flaska, 2011 vintage. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, apelsin, nyans av romerska bågar och kanel, ekträ och kryddor. Stor kropp och sötma, viss syrlighet, fin beska.

kajser27 (1086) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 11, 2016
Cloudy, deep amber colored, medium creamy beige head. Aroma is of overripe fruits, tart, strong Brett, some orange notes and caramel, light cocoa. Taste is tart fruits, some orange, spicy, candy caramel, medium+ strong wild funkiness and sour, some cocoa but mostly in finish and aftertaste, medium- bitterness, dry. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Brett conquers all, cacao notes almost don’t get through at all...

Vignale (2994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2015
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea 2012 vintage drucken med ölföreningen. Lite kraftigare öl från JP. Stor kropp med viss sötma, lätt kryddig, tydlig ek och laktokaraktär som ger en syrlig smakbild med mycket träighet. I bakgrunden kan lite romerska bågar från den försiktiga kryddningen. Snygg och god.

SG111 (982) - New York, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Tap at the brewpub, Detroit. Pours a little chestnut color, white ring of lacing. Aroma is sour yeast, malt notes, fairly standard from jolly Pumpkin. Flavor is sweet but nutty, to be expected from this. But as usual, good stuff from JP.

Iphonephan (5615) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 10, 2015
From a 75 cl bottle shared at home. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma of dank earth. Flavors of vinyl. Not finding any cinnamon cocoa or orange. Maybe off?

ciocanelu (852) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 8, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Murky amber color with beige head. Aroma is tart, slightly acetic and spicy. Taste is just a bit tart and spicy but no detectable specific spice. Medium body and soft carbonation. Quite nice and easy drinking overall.
