A bottle from Craft Beer Base drunk at home. It is quite nice, the first taste is very floral and hoppy but not too bitter which is then followed by a nice sweet aftertaste. Nice!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep amber-garnet with a fairly thick khaki head that leaves some sudsy lace. Nose involves some fairly intense pine, tropical fruit, and citrus along with some deep caramel and toffee tones and some spice. Almost a touch of worcestershire to it. Quite sweet, but also quite bitter. Medium heavy body, oily, syrupy, chewy, bright, with a long juicy bitter hop finish. A complex brew, bordering on too much for its own good. Fairly easy drinking in spite of itself.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml Bottle - Amber with a small head. Caramel, pine, biscuity malt and sultanas in the aroma. Fruity, moderately hoppy and slightly sweet taste with some metallic hints and notes of toffee, grapefruit, pine and sultanas. Not bad, and it certainly doesn’t taste its strength.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours coppery and clear, with 1,5 finger soapy head. Aroma is very complex: malty backbone has a lot of caramel, yeast(?) brings berry-like notes and hops bring the whole coniferous forest with tropical fruits to my nose. Also a hint of american type waffel is present. Very nice aroma. Taste has plenty of caramel, which takes little of the hop burn. Hoppiness is very coniferous again, wood and twigs are both present. Also resin-like taste is present. Palate is sweet at the beginning before hops take the palate away and leaves good bitterness in my mouth. All in all, well hopped american strong ale, with good caramel-malty backbone. A little too sweet, but I have no other complains.
