Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

Poured amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Typical IIPA flavors throughout. I’m glad I didn’t drink a full pint of this last night after the other. The 10% is well hidden.

Idiosynkrasie (3942) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2014
650ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey, dark golden colour with late awakening, average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Minimally perfumed and soapy, fruity and bitter hoppy aroma, apricot, peach, almond, biscuit. Taste is moderately sweet malty, hints of sugar powder, biscuit, almond, biting hop bitterness. Not in the sense "decadent" and flamboyant like Jean Floressas Des Esseintes’ lifestyle, rather cloddish, inflated, heavy weight without refinement.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, pine. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Az, hogy egy bővérű IPA-val van dolgunk, már a címkéjén szereplő információk, legfőképp az alkoholfok mértékének megjelölése is sejtetni véli, mély tónusú, méz színű teste, ujjnyi vastagnál tovább nemigen terjeszkedő habfedele pedig csak tovább erősíti a keményvonalas india pale ale-benyomást. Illata puding és almakompót, aszalt trópusi gyümölcsök és természetesen gyanta alkotta kompozíció, íze pedig egy közepesen élénk testben teljesedik ki, amint a szánk különböző szegleteiben hinti szét csípőskés, édes és krémes, karcosan keserű és alkoholosan bizsergető jegyeit. Előbb a nyelvünk tövén, majd szélein telepszenek meg az erejét sugalló tónusok, majd lenyelve csatlakoznak hozzájuk azok az árnyalatok, melyek kerekké teszik a képet, úgy, mint a likőrősen édes és keserű, alkoholban áztatott, majd kiszárított gyógynövények maradandó hangulata, az alkohol férfias karaktere. Tagadhatatlan, hogy egy nehézsúlyú amerikai fenegyerek ez is, de szépségeit valószínűleg minden komlófanatikus észlelni fogja.

Appearance: Hazy darker shade of amber. White fluffy short head and good lacing. Aroma: I pick up the aroma of pine resin and a strong caramel sweet malt scent. Pretty average fair. Taste: Right up front I get a woody flavor, followed by the taste of caramel and a hint of alcohol. Back-bitterness is very earthy which really personifies the overall flavor of the beer. A lingering pine resin flavor in the mouth. Palate: Fairly full bodied for an Imperial IPA. Lots of bitterness. Good carbonation. Overall: It was decent but there wasn’t a great deal of hop presence in the aroma. The hop flavors were predominantly earthy, being a bit woody and pine-like. There was an alcohol presence that stood out a bit too much for a 10% ABV beer as well. I enjoyed drinking it which is important, but it’s not something I would look for in the future.

"Modus Hoperandi is a very good IPA, so hopes were high for this one, and it just didn’t really live up. Almost barleywine like in body and texture. A nice enough flavor and aroma, but maltier and less floral and fruity than I prefer in any ipa, double or otherwise. May be better super fresh. Dunno. Not bad, but well below average for a favorite style."

Dark orange color with little head and carbonation. Very strong caramel flavor that overwhelms the hop character in my opinion.

This was a grape bomb while still holding on to the taste profile of an Imperial IPA. There is a lovely viscosity to this beer as well. The website claims citrus notes that I do not get at all but the caramel malt is surely there. It tastes the full 10% of alcohol and it has the bitter punch to it but there is a serious amount of concord grape sweetness here that really adds an unusual layer to a beer style that can sometimes (let’s face it) get a little boring.

From bottle. Pours clear orange yellow with a white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Taste is sweet, lots of caramel, lots of citrus.

Pour from bottle in Killeen Texas. Deep golden pour with weak head. Pretty good flavor with some sweetness. Don't really taste the 10%, I like it overall. Not fantastic, but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
