3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Durty indeed. Muddy, rusty brown with a big junkyard pile of foam on top. The aroma, flavor and texture of this all deliver just as the title would suggest ... there’s the citric hoppiness of an American ale, just riding the wavecrest of a at-its-core toffee-based, caramel brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Amazingly creamy and compact medium sized beige head. Long lasting and with nice lacing. Brown color with some yeast particles. Hoppy, fruity and resinous aroma of oranges, pineapple & pine needles, nuts, toffee, milk chocolate. Medium bodied. Taste is bitter up front and then finishes with plenty of sharp orange-peel-like + coffee-roasted bitterness.It Taste of pineapple, toffee, orange peel, nuts, earth, dark bread and dark chocolate. But most flavors are overshadowed very soon by the assertive bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy cereal, toasted and milk chocolate for the malt, moderate herbs for the hops, dough and mushrooms for the yeast, with wood and toffee in the background. Head is average to large, frothy/creamy turning rocky, beige, with excellent crusty and thick lacing and is fully lasting. Color is slightly hazy and sparkling dark brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and heavily bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium,creamy, with a lively carbonation and a lightly astringent finish. Starts off like an average tasting Brown Ale, but the bitter finish puts this American Strong Ale in a class by itself.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent fruity aroma. Fruity taste with still some light alcohol in it. Good bitterness that sits down in front of the mouth for a long time. There’s something about this beer that makes me disappointed. Not quite sure what. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
