MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, - OCT 20, 2012
(bottle, 33cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a firm medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately piney and slightly citric hoppy aroma with notes of dark malt, caramel and liquorice. Bitter and moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Dark malt character with caramel, liquorice, accompanied by piney and mildly fruity hops; present dark malty sweetness towards the moderately fruity and bitter hoppy finish with warming alcoholic notes. Not the best ASA, but nevertheless a pleasant Ale. 20.X.12

Mooi donker bier met een lichte schuimkraag. Volgens mij is dit een dark IIPA, het heeft de geur van een hoppige IPA met caramel en toffee tonen. Ook de smaak lijkt op een zware IPA. Heerlijk!

Had this one a zillion times before. One of my favs from Jopen. Pours an dark orange brown beer with a good white head. Smells fruity, malts, spices and some other stuff. Really nice. Tastes hops, malts, caramel or honey, spices. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

DutchMark (194) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2014
Interesting and tasty. It is like a double bock crossed with an IPA. Dark brown with a beige head. The 10% is well hidden. It starts a bit sweet with lots of yeast malts and caramel then goes to a surprisingly fresh citrussy floral bitter hop finish. Dangerously easy to drink for a 10%. Recommended.

langeveld12 (255) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2014
Poured a frothy off-white head that mostly diminishes. Body is hazy Ruby Brown, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (cookie, toasted malts, molasses, mild coffee and milk chocolate), light hops (flowers, orange) and grape, raisin, plum, cherry, cassis, tawny port, brown sugar, licorice, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and sweet, followed by sweet and light bitter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium to full with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Nice balanced beer for the cold winter nights.

Mooi donker bier. Wit/koperen schuimkop. Mooi fris/zoet bouquette. Smaak is fris, gist en wat choco en een klein bittertje. Heel mooi bier dit.
