Sample (10 cl) from a big bottle at Bishops Arms, Järntorget, Göteborg, Sweden. Hazy mahogny, medium creamy beige head. Enormously strong & fresh hop aroma with notes of pine needles, citrus, and dark berries. Medium bodied and smooth. Insanely bitter. Nice but a bit gimmicky with the huge bitterness.

During six days in Copenhagen I enjoyed this delicious brew on tap at CBF 09, Lord Nelson and Plan B. Attractive deep, russet coloured body. Minimal head. Smell of grapes and citrus peels. Dry hopped taste profile with pine needles, dark fruits and caramel sweetness. Long lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Massive and heavy and a joy to the senses (mid-May 09).
