2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bevuta in bottiglia (bottle) aroma buono..non male pecca della birra erano delle note dolciastre forse dovute all’utilizzo di un lievito belga trappista dato l’alto grado alcolico...alla fine una birra stucchevole dove era difficile bere anche il mezzo litro...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the second 42nd Floor tasting - Thanks Dan! It pours clear orange-amber with a thick off-white head. The nose is quite fresh, peachy, stewed nectarine, brown bread, toffee and a sprinkling of pepper. The taste is bitter-sweet, oily, stewed orange, toffee, boosty alcohol, nectarine with a dry, warming finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Nice peachy nectarine vibe throughout. Perhaps not the most refined DIPA out there, but enjoyable nonetheless.
