3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, rich head. Striking perfumy nose with gooseberry and black currant. Sweet and full bodied with loads of perfumy hops. Hugely bitter finish. Though getting a bit syrupy, the zesty massive hoppiness outweighs that, and it remains a relatively drinkable hop bomb.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Horrible, horrible nose. Butter and booze are prominent and there is a ton of sweetness in the form of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. Some piney hops and a bit of an herbal note to it as well.
T: The flavor starts off with a moderate bitterness from the piney hops and some citrus peel. But, there is a lot of butter and sweet caramel and toffee.
M: Medium to full in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Just too buttery and sweet...blech.
