Robe cuivrée, légèrement trouble. Arômes très floraux, végétaux voire résineux. Texture crémeuse, persistance moyenne, carbonation faible. Un équilibre complexe entre le sucre et l’amertume, on sent très peu l’alcool malgré ses 11%. Saveurs de réglisse et de sucre candy.

nimbleprop (5017) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2014
750ml bottle via trade a while back. Pours a garnet amber with some lacing, sticky, white head. Nose has a mix of caramel, malt, some dark fruit, sort of like dried apple slices, some brown sugar too, root veg, orange, and pine. Flavor blends those elements poorly, piney with that sticky type of bitterness, almost like fresh rosemary, the malt backbone is big, caramel, roasted parsnip, raisins, dried fruit. Incredibly boozy and overly sweet. Smells like it could be a winner. Maybe it needs lots of time in the bottle.

AgentAle (724) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
Aroma is rich and earthy with a deep hop profile. Citrus, grapefruit, caramel and toasted grains. Taste is very nice ; clove bitterness, toffee, caramel, sweet rich malts and a fragrant yeastiness. Slight tart finish with light liquor presence that finishes smoothly. Appearance is a hazy amber orange with a pearl head that retains fairly well.

Koelschtrinker (10848) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Hopfiger, viel zu süßer Antrunk. Zuckrig, fast schon plörrig, leicht grasig, helles Malz. Dann nur noch Süße. 9/5/5/6/9/5
