ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Spice. Sweet malts. Spicy dried fruits, turning tangy. Some heat, but not in proportion to it’s giant abv. Light semi dry finish. Spicy linger. Very similar to the Du Centre pair.

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Bottle at ChrisO. Thanks to Kenny.... It pours clear oily gold with pretty much no head. The nose is sweet, sticky, apple, pear, caramel, sugary and some baked goods. The taste is hot, toasty, earth, caramel, oily, honey, apple, pear, over-ripe fruits and boozy with a warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A touch better than the du centre versions. Still pretty hot.

yngwie (14775) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. An unclear, orange colored beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is rather sugary and alcoholic, with canned peaches, some pine cones and booze. It’s full-bodied and warming on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Booze, white sugar, canned peaches, bitterness and some resiny notes. Lasting finish. Way too warming this one, but there’s some nice things going on here as well. 150328
