3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6%. Hazy amber to brown colour, huge off-white head. Moderate but nice aroma of malts, yeast and roasted pepper, some fruity hints too.
Roasted pepper dominates the flavour totally, some yeasty hints too. Interesting, but too much pepper for me, one small glass appears to be enough. Then the peppery bite slowly begins to feel moreish ...

Golden to amber brown in colour, roasted black peppercorn is all over the aroma, some fruitiness from the Belgium yeast strain. Quite fruity in aroma, pepper aroma is great, not at all like smelling black corns, not as stingy as one would expect, touches of caramel and toffee.
Orange peel along with spice, sweetness from the malt, mild hoppy bitterness keeps this beer well balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Initially huge white head eventually dwindling over hazy light brown beer. Aroma intensity is medium, coarse hops, grass and hay dominating, some faint ripe fruit nuance, not as complex as hoped. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, medium plus carbonation. Taste is more complex. Negatively for me, too much homogenous hops bitterness, but the malt and pepper are telling on the midpalate and a pepper burning actually lingers into the finish. Too bad it is overhopped it would have allowed for some more malt taste play.

Bottled. Pours hazy amber with an average, lacing off-white head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, yeast, black pepper, citrus notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. A nice brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Bradleys, enjoyed over dinner with my girlfriend. Pours a cloudy ruby orange with a perfectly smooth white head and gorgeous lacing. An exquisite looking beer. Aroma is of candied tropical fruits, pleasant metallic notes similar to Deus, slighty perfumed fragrant fruitiness and just a touch of must. Taste is medium tropical sweetness, very light bitterness and a late spicy pepper flavour. Fruity and peppery finish, quite a distinctly belgian metallic touch, smooth carbonation and medium body. Very complex and unique beer, definitely worth a whirl.
