Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Kristina. Pours a clear dark brown with an orange hue and a creamy beige head. Very fresh citrusy hops in the nose dominating over a subtle roast, Medium body, sweet and perfumy hops, very perfumy again the roast is very subtle. Dry and hoppy finish. Very elegant. 220312

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Draft at Dexters. Opaque black with a solid beige head. Oily resinous burnt coffee/toffee aroma. More enjoyable than the Farmhouse, a very drinkable BIPA. Steady semi-soapy hops. Clean for the style, medium to full bodied. Middle of the road, enjoyable enough. Well executed, but pretty tame.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Blackish, slight brown. Richmond 16th. Aromas and flavors again a match - a slight, pleasant roasty chocolate note, some citric hops. It isn’t bad at all, just very muted flavors.

shrubber85 (7314) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2011
Bottle. Chocolate malt and citrus peel/pine aroma. Dark chestnut brown with giant tan head. Slightly sweet ashy chocolate malt and moderately bitter grapefruit and pine flavor. On the dry side. Not bad.

It just tastes like a beer that doesn’t know what the heck it is going for, a mess.

Sammy (8395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours black bodied with thick beige soapy head that leaves 3/8 of an inch retained head. Pleasant Cascadian citrus aromas, and inviting. Creamy mouthfeel, spot on the style. good drinkability. Roast, some citrus and decent hop bitterness.Thanks for bringing back Chris.

Butters (3735) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Sampled with the other 5 in the series. Again, a little funk on this one, but not a gusher. Dark clear brown pour with ample light tan head. Same base underlying beer, but with a dark spicy quality. Interesting.
