Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 6, 2010
Bottled 375ml. Ordered from erzbierschof.ch. It pours a deep amber beer with a nicely remaining creamy beige head. Strong, almost pungent peppery aroma of grapefruit, pine needles, bitter orange marmelade and mango. The nose is mouthwatering, powerful and inviting. Peppery, resiny and full bodied. Warming on the swallow. Nice spotty lacework. Long, extremely bitter finish. Interesting. This beer propably complements spicy food really well.

grapengrain (124) - Havelock North, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 5, 2010
Very big sweet malty notes - barley sugar and caramel... this ballanced the hop note which were dominant but not particularily ’Bitter’ (isn’t that what IBU is a measure of???). Also Mikkeller describes the beer as a Double Imperial IPA - not sure quite what this means - it is certinaly not a IIIPA at 9.x% unlike his Black which warrants the "Double Imperial" Stout demarkation at 17.5%. Interesting but not exciting.

Dogbrick (8683) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Thanks to Homerwantsbeer for sharing a bottle at Septoberfest. The beer is a dark reddish-brown color with a thick and rocky beige head that burns away slowly. Thick rings of lacing. Fruit and bready malt in the nose, along with pungent hops. Rich body with a strong resiny hops character and flavors of toasted malt, berries and alcohol. The finish is hoppy with a lingering pine and resin after-effect. Pretty good overall, especially considering my gimmicky first impression.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Clear amber/copper with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, grain and earthy hop. Caramel malt flavor with strong earthy and piney hops. Bitter, yes, but the malt shines through much more. I guess they’re right when they say the palate can only taste bitterness up to 100-120 IBU.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours slightly murky brownish amber with a dense, creamy beige head that lasts a while. Unsurprisingly the aroma is pretty hoppy, but it also has a solid malt profile as well, with toffee, earth and wood notes mixed with pine, grass, mint, herbs and citrus. Flavour follows the aroma quite closely but without the hops becoming too sharp or overbearing: pine, grass, lemon, grapefruit, pepper and juniper all stand out. Sticky, slightly oily mouthfeel with low carbonation and a long bitter finish. This certainly is hoppy, but nowhere near as aggressive as I anticipated. Although I wouldn’t drink it all the time, this is a very nice, well-crafted brew, and worth seeking out.

Bov (9810) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 28, 2010
from Erzbierschof.ch - hazy amber-brown colour and with a persistent beige foam; nice lacework; very hoppy nose, aroma of molasses, flowers and quince; thick, full-bodied and with a moderate carbonation; very bitter but not as much as I think it could be; very long flowery and fruity hoppy finish with a lingering bitterness - a hop soup

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep unclear brown with a big but short-lasting off-white head. Aroma is lots and lots of hops, with resin and citrus. Taste is much of the same. Palate is soft again dominated by hops. Overall a great beer.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Bottle. Pours a very murky dark bronze with a big tan coloured head. Plenty of lacing as it feel away, Aromas are no where near as aggressive as i anticipated.. Plenty of resiny citrus hop aromas for sure but for me the hop aromas play second fiddle to heaps and heaps of sweet light malt. Brilliant stuff. Really really good. Flavour wise plenty of sweet malt again up front followed by reasonable resiny hop bitterness. Once again the hops are not at all over powering. Very full beer and really really enjoyed it.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Rusty brown pour with a loose, off-white head. Very floral and herbal with light citrus. Like a fresh bag of hops. Some notes of caramel and biscuit from the malt with a touch of pine. Overall not too aggressive but well balanced. Medium, dry body with soft carbonation.

Bottle at Borefts bierfestival 2010. Very sweet sticky maltiness finishes harshly bitter and resinous.
