4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ WWT II. Clear dark amber, headless pour. Aroma is sweet caramel hops, almost a wine character. Flavour is perfect balance between the hops and the malt, carried by a light alcoholic character. Despite this being 13%, it drinks like 9%. This is sweet and incredible hoppy at the same time. Awesome brew!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Arriva la bestia! L’unica cosa che non va è il colore, un miscuglio indescrivibile e torbido, l’aroma è drammaticamente luppolato e così il sapore, con in più l’equilibrio del malto.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bel color arancio con soffice schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma avvolgente, forti sentori di luppolo, toffee, quasi di formaggio; resinosa, pungente e dolciastra. Gusto inizialmente dolciastro, molto maltoso, tendente poi all’amaro pronunciato e generosamente luppolato con note agrumate e caramellate. Corpo massiccio, strutturata, sciropposa e liquorosa: una birra incredibilmente intensa, alcolica e forte, da cardiopalma!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a tasting, thanks DSG, ckear quite deep red colour, aroma of jam, lemon, biscuit, nuts and very ripe oranges, flavour of jam, butterscotch, lemon drops and flowers, bitter but overpowered by an extremely strong sweetness. Fair but unbalanced and quite hard to drink.
