3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a snifter.
4.5 A: Ruddy medium amber color. Two fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is very good for the ABV and lots of lacing is left.
4.5 S: Quite a hop bomb. Citrus and floral hops dominate. Mango, papaya, pineapple, and orange are the big players. Pine and grapefruit underneath. Caramel maltiness with a strong hit of bready yeastiness.
4.0 T: Surprisingly the malt is a big part of the taste. Lots of caramel, lots of peach and candied apple fruitiness. Again, lots of tropical fruits. Mango and papaya are strongest followed by pineapple and orange followed by pine and grapefruit. Mild to moderate yeastiness. The only thing that prevents me from enjoying this more is the bitterness. Bitterness is quite aggressive and lingers well into the aftertaste. The supposed 80 IBUs tastes more like double that. On a lighter note, the alcohol is well hidden.
3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. There’s a bit too much chewiness from the yeast for me. It reduces the creaminess.
3.5 D: I’m going to have a hell of a time finishing this bottle with all this bitterness. Still, it’s a tasty beer and I wish I stumbled upon more than one bottle. Great nose and a solid taste. There’s not a whole lot of wheat flavor in this, but that’s to be expected considering the massive hoppiness.

Ale ambrata, corposa e liquorosa, spessa al naso e al palato con dolci sentori di caramello, frutta, alcool, brandy, uvetta, pan di spagna... finale amarognolo e discretamente luppolato, una vera "cannonata".

Flaska från SB drygt två år gammal. Inga tydliga ålderstecken men smakerna hänger ihop väldigt bra. Stor söt karamellig kropp, rejäl grape/resinbeska. Magno, grape, marmelad, resin. Riktigt maffig.

C’est moins expressif et "festif’"que les autres barley issus de la collaboration entre les deux brasseurs. Un côté un peu plus résineux et moins de fruits tropicaux. Un petit côté ananas ... De la bonne qualité.

750ml bottle in a taster glass. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and sweetness and chocolate and fruits from the malts, some light wheat, bitter hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle at the Bevog 2nd anniversary. Pours a hazy amber color, topped with a medium sized beige colored head. Mild biscuity aroma with little resin presence. Taste is similar - biscuity, a bit resiny with some molasses feel. Gentle taste with moderate bitterness and a bit too much of warming alcohol. Nice, but nothing that would blow my head off.
