Nothing is like celebrating your own milestones. This is a celebration of our 500th batch of ale. It was brewed with joy and splendor; the brewer wore a suit, and a TV station filmed the event. As a base for this ale, we have elected to play with numbers: 5 hops, 100 IBUs, 10% alcohol by volume. Indeed it is an Imperial India Pale Ale. Big and bold. Great for a celebration!

Aromat bardzo fajny, żywiczny. Wygląd świetny - mętne, spoko piana. W smaku pełne i wyjątkowo pijalne. Nie czuć ani 100 IBU, ani 10%. Świetne piwo.

Cristobal37 (812) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 20, 2015
Extremely fruity and malt rich aroma. Cloudy gold bronze. Rich piney sticky sweet maple syrup resin slight bitterness. Fantastic. Big flavor, huge body, smooth as hell. Not another over hopped dipa, must try! These Norwegian bastards are so on point. Are people copying them yet? Because they should, cos they’re amazing.

tandembrauer (1191) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2016 Bottle at home. Pours dark amber with small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, dark dried fruits, alcohol. The beer is too old (11 months after brew date), so it is more an American barley wine now. Tastes sweet with some balancing bitterness. Smooth mouth feel. Re-rated 2016-10-16: Aroma of caramel, grass, citrus, some tropical fruits, some pine needles. Tastes sweet with some umami, but still well balanced. Medium bodied, smooth mouth feel, alcoholic warmth.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 27, 2015
Double IPA ambrata, corposa, profumatissima, resinosa, astringente, maltosa e luppolata all’inverosimile! Gusto rotondo con note fruttate e caramellate immediatamente sostituite da un’esplosione al luppolo. Buonissima!

Deu nidor! Quina cervesa, es la meva eleccio per avui, l’estic degustant a poc a poc I descubrint els seus sabors que varien mentre passa l’estona. Un bon format de 0,5 litres, perfecte per degustar tranquilament. He servit la cervesa I tot I que ho fet a poc a poc a mostrat bastants sediments, que han embrutat rapidament el got fent un xic de mal a la vista. De color taronjos presenta una bona corona d’espuma densa que poc a poc deixa bona marca al got. Sabor penetrant I intents a maltes amb tos subtils a caramel sense ser empalagosa, cereals, terra....molt matisos..10 graus de maltas que es fan notar pero no amb gust alcholic. Passa que dona gust com la majoria de les bones imperials ipas. Llupols molt marcat I presents, al principi pots notar un fort aroma a llupol que poc a poc va desapareixent deixant pas a olors mes a malta. Toc d’amargor perfecte, amb potencia pero alhora molt equilibrat en boca. Tot I que els sediments han embrutat molt el got al principi poc a poc el sediment ha anat quedant al fons I en cap moment ha molestat o presentat mes densitat de la compte, bastant curios ja que feia molt que no veia una cervesa amb tant sediment, imagio que normal despres dafegir tal quantitat de malta. La seva germana petiteta la ipa de norke era clara com l’aigua, binissima eata pendent de comentar. Avui gaudim d’aquesta gracies a la cerveseria belga DrunkMoon de Mataró, un bon lloc per gaudir d’un sortit infinit de cerveses espectaculars acompanyat d’ambient cerveser, bona musica, menjar I tapes de qualitat.
