kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2011
(bottle) brown/dark amber with small head. Fairly faint hop aroma. Flavor is alcohol, some darks malts/sweet dark fruit, and citrus hops. Not nearly as hoppy as I expected.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2011
Murky amber with some floaties, no lasting head. Overripe exotic fruits, sweet bread, dried fruits and caramel. Big bitterness of course, but it was kind of a smooth bitterness.

Wolfbass (937) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 5, 2011
Colore arancio scuro con leggera schiuma. Aroma notevole, decisamente luppolato. Anche in bocca il luppolo Ť padrone, ben equilibrato finisce molto lunga e amara. Mi piace, mi piace.

Dark copper color. A bit hazy. Thin off-white head. Floral, and Grassy hop and bready malt smell. Sweet malts are bit candy like. Fruit taste of apricot. Very bitter of course but not as much as DFH120. Medium to fuller body with lots of dryness.

(375ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) rich orange/copper pour with a film of bubbles. Nose of sweet caramel, candied fruit, maple, cinnamon and scones. Taste of cola, caramel, bitter grapefruit, rhubarb, and quite spicy. Thick body, bitter linger. Well hidden alcohol presence.

PotjeBier (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2010
On tap @ Beer Temple. Amber colored, hazy. Firm off white head, good lacing. Aromaís of resin, fruit, flowery, herbal, pepper. Flavor is bitter, with some alcoholic sweetness to give it some balance. Medium bodied. Long, very bitter finish. Interesting brew, but ruins your tastebuds.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
Impressively rocky light beige head thrones above the opaque copper, loaded with ugly chunks of yeast. The nose reminds of a fruit salad with canned peaches, litchi and grapefruit being the most obvious components to me. Underneath, a strong caramelly and toasty maltiness rhimes with heavy sweetness, not cloying thanks to the intense hops, but making the ensemble globally intense and not quite the single-minded hop focused ale I expected. Sprucey and resinous lingering finish with biting notes of grapefruit zest. Grasping bitterness that lasts for a while, removing the sugary impression. Full-bodied with a bubbly, but never biting foamy texture. Not very balanced despite my impression that the strong sweetness was partly there to keep the hoppiness in check. Just a basket of everything and not particularly complex in that regard. Still, itís an experimental brew Iím glad to have tried, but given the opportunity to drink it again, I believe Iíd pass.

rosenbergh (7409) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2010
375 ml bottle. KÝbenhavn, Denmark.
Dark reddish brown colour with fluffy off-white head and lots of sediment. Very dark hops, bread and some alcohol in aroma. Berries, very dark hops, bread and alcohol in flavour. Low carbonation. Quite mild hoppiness compared to IBUs. Canít help saying bit of a disappointment.
