Bottle pours a hazy copper color with a large, lasting, lacy light beige head. The aroma is caramel sugar, toffee, buckwheat, and grapefruit. Sweet sugary caramel malt flavor. Finishes with moderate bitterness - citrus and herbal notes. Medium-full bodied, somewhat syrupy. Hides the booze decently well. A bit overrated, but good.

mgajdaczewa (1487) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
W aromacie owocowe, dojrzałe tropiki, żółte owoce, wyrazista baza słodowa idąca w stronę biszkoptów, sugestia lekkiej wanilii, lekkie utlenienie, ale generalnie bardzo przyjemny. W smaku raczej wytrawne jak na styl, dobrze ukryty alkohol, biszkoptowo - owocowe, ponownie te niezidentyfikowane żółte owoce, ale na niskim poziomie soczystości, utlenieniowa ice tea, goryczka podwyższona, nieco gryząca, ciut popiołowa. W smaku niewiele się dzieje, ładnie pachnie, generalnie plus.

Bottle: Slightly cloudy, dark orange-brown with a small off-white head. Caramel malt, buckwheat, wood/bark aroma. Taste is quite woody....caramel malt, mild citrus,.....sort of an oily bitter. A lot of malt...pretty easy drinking for the ABV. Left me feeling a little dry and thirsty, strangely.... Not bad, but nothing more.

ABT_S54 (351) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
750ml bottle served in a snifter. Pours deep orange with a huge white head with good lacing and minimal carbonation. Extremely powerful hop aroma and the taste is very clean and grassy with a nice but not excessive sweetness from the malt. Definitely more hoppy than malty and extremely well balanced. Delicious.

shrubber85 (10038) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle. Earthy lemon, buckwheat, malt, and grapefruit peel aroma. Amber with large off-white head. Sweet earthy citrus, biscuit malt, and moderately strong bitter herbal lemon peel flavor. Good body. Was hidden in the back of my fridge for a couple years - don’t think aging was a great idea here.

alex_leit (1592) - Minsk, BELARUS - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle. Yellow amber color with good foam. Aroma of strong malt beer, nectar and fruit, citrus hops. Taste: butterscotch, candy, buckwheat, wine, white port. Excellent

King_Alex_II (1063) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2016
Light cloudy orange color with a foam layer. Oily and light alcoholic nose with a surprising dominant amount of hoppy flavors. The taste is oily, creamy with a strong malty sweet character and a light alcoholic finish with a dry aftertaste.

SvanteL (200) - SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2016
Flaska inköpt 2012. Bärnstensfärgad med stort tät skum. Fruktig doft med citrusmarmelad, aprikoser och aningen tallbarr. Stor, fyllig, välbalanserad smak, på en botten av maltighet stiger en skön sötma av pomeransmarmelad och aprikoser vilket balanseras av en djup grapebeska. Mycket bra njutaröl; påminner en hel del om Hog Heaven från Great Divide.

Excellent. Very sweet, brown sugar. Alcohol warmness, malt, and generously hopped bit remains bslanced with the sweet malt.
