Bottle, 66 cl. Almost clear orange amber with a decent white head. Nose is sticky and sweet with tons of caramel and a fruity note of abricots and gooseberries. Not that hoppy though. Just as sticky in the mouth as teh aroma suggest, lots of fruity residual sugars but quite well balanced with a bitter piney finish and quite some alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle: Pours a mostly clear deep copper bronze with a spotty-lacing froth of white head. Has a sweet toasted caramel malty nose with some herbal grassy hop notes and a touch of honey. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy malty sweetness with plenty of hop bitter bite and some floral notes with light oxidation. I just picked up the bottle and there’s no date, but it seems a little stale to me. Otherwise, it could be better if fresher.

Not a very strong nose just little sweet malt hints, poured amber or dark straw white frothy head with good lacing and retention.
First so is very malty front with lingering hop bitter finish. Not very specific hop flavors stand out. A little citrusy and a bit chewy.
Overall a pretty mehh dipa.
