Bottled. Dark brown, rich, malty. A nice piney and hoppy dryness. Dryness dominates in the finish. A well balanced, moreish ale.

ogivlado (6304) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 12, 2012
Bottled 500ml. -Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, fruity and light caramellish nose. Mild roasted malt, honeyish fruity and hoppy taste with notes of caramel and citrus. Quite bitter hoppy finish. Not so balanced but decent beer.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
A grainy, spicy, toasty nose where the blueberry jam, milk chocolate and tomato seeds form an original and hard to describe nose. Quite tight. Following in the same registry, the palate is malty, with a dose of earthy hops and wild flowers, roots toi follow up. Rather salty (celery salt) bitterness. Original flavours in a toasted malt foundatrion. A bit more residual sugars than I’d want, especially that the body does not put them to good use, feeling quite airy and paradoxally creamy yet foamy, never biting, but never full. Lager-like mouthfeel.

ekstedt (5916) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. Copper colour, off-white to beige medium head. Aroma is hops! Floral, with citric notes, and dried apricots. There are some roasted malt aromas as well. Medium bodied. Nicely balanced, some mild malt sweetness is transformed to a robust and long bitter finish.
