foxo82 (765) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2012
On tap (guest) at BrewDog Nottingham. Clear amber with a small but perfectly formed head. Mouthfeel like a wine. Sugary, hoppy aroma. This is sweet but perhaps too sweet - there really wasn’t anything in the way of bitterness there. Still, an excellent beer.

jaghana (4379) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 15, 2012
Rating #1900, bottle 75cl, a copper beer with a huge head with good structure and lacing. Nose is intense on hops perfume such as resin, coconut and lemon. Aroma is sweet and well malty on caramalt and toasted malt, smooth and pleasant malty side, extremely drinkable for this alcohol level, not too sweet, resin and honey hops with even floral touch. Finish is on round hops with a long malty duration, dry feeling, spicy notes such as anise and elderberry, not aggressive in hops bitterness and agrume side, this is perfectly done.

ChainGangGuy (4482) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Appearance: Pours a clouded, amber-gold body with a two-inch-tall, lasting, off-white head.

Smell: Sweetish elements of caramel, amber-colored honey, toasted kasha, a pinch of ground nutmeg, mild alcohol (boogoopbooze), and chopped bitter lemon rinds.

Taste: Sugar-encrusted toast topped with additional helpings of honey, caramel. Yes, there’s a fair amount of sweetness present. Supplementary dried fruits. Candied lemon peel, resinous hops with a moderate bitterness. Lightly spicy. Minor rustic buckwheat grain quality perking up amidst the bitterness and sweetness. Bitterish, flowing finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Boogoop is fairly good goop, not great goop.

Brenhophead (636) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2012
800-850mL magnum bottle pours amber with a creamy 2 finger head which is amazing for a 10.4% beer. Aroma is a real stand out with fresh hops and i guess the spicey touch from the buckwheat. Wow the flavour in this beer is so complex, so much going on amazing + you cant even taste the 10.4%. I will certainly be getting a couple more bottles of this for storage.

freeofthoughts (681) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Bottle pours orange yellow with white head. The aroma is full of grain but also a solid citrus hop. The taste is somewhere between a golden wheat wine and a double ipa. It works very well as a hopped up brew that goes down fairly easy for the strength. It is about what you would hope for between the two breweries.

JohnnyJ (4756) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Draft at Churchills. Hazy orange pour, with frothy white head. Sweet malts, fruit, wheat, caramel, grassy hops, and a nice dose of bitterness. Good, but not completely memorable.

abemorsten (3069) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2012
On tap at Cardinal. Clear orange with a white head leaving excellent lacing. Orange peel, malts, spruce and fruits on the nose. Heavy sweet and heavy bitter flavors with plenty of resin and dried fruits. Full bodied, alco warm and a syrupy texture. Long bitter sweet finish.

gyllenbock (5343) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle. Hazy reddish/brown with a large head. I really liked the aroma on this one. A lot of malt, sweet, fruit, toffee and some wood. The taste was also dominated by malt. Sweet but really drinkable and easy to enjoy. Notes of alcohol but nothing alarming.

Draft at Blind Tiger brunch with Linh, Pat, Dallas, and Ann. Pours a deep, hazy mahogany with no head. Aroma is bitter pine hop. Mouthfeel is very dry and bitter with notes of pine, dry citrus, and an alcohol burn.
