3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this at Arendsnest Amsterdam, Netherlands, Sunday 28th September 2014. Pours reddy brown, murky with an off white rim. Soft in mouth, bitter, really twangy, mmhhh.. I have to say I am.underwhelmed, ok its a DIPA but it ainít doing much for me at all. Its fruity but lacks a real crisp punchy bite. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Poured a clear dark amber with a thin white head. The aroma is big woody resin hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a super nettle hop, citrus, light alcohol palate. Medium bodied with light carbonation. They definitely dropped the hop bucket in this one. Tonight I discovered that a beer really can have too many hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured reddish brown with a small off white head. Aroma of vinous deep dark fruit, roast malt. Medium body, flavour is liquorice, sweet berries, roast malt. Donít see this as an IPA of any description, more an old ale than anything else.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle @ home from Melgerís, Haarlem. Murky deep ruby brown color, medium creamy beige mostly diminishing head, fair lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt, parfume, grass, caramel, orange peel, vegetable, citric, light grapefruit, soap, licorice. Taste light sweetness, medium to heavy roasted and medicine bitterness, sligtly sour, hint of saltyness and umami. Medium to full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is slightly alcoholic, quite hoppy and roasty bitter with long duration. Interesting combination of the hoppy and roasty feel, not very easy to drink, still a bit refreshing and good as a dessert in the same time.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Koperbruin bier, helder met fijne kraag. Aroma is wijn, rood fruit. Smaak is stevig zoet, iets bitter in de afdronk. Je proeft de houtlagering bij het doorslikken.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 330ml at tíArendsnest, Amsterdam. Dark amber with off white head. Full on darker roasted malts here, bitter, tarry, liquorice along with a fruity alcohol character. Then a chemistry set of hop flavours really heavy stuff but certainly pretty good. Whew.
