1st June 2008. Very dark brown beer. Hoppy like an IPA. The hops are smooth and juicy with very little bitterness. The dark malt is also smooth and provides some balance to all the hops. Creamy malt finish. Lovely.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz, thx to thewolf. It pours a clear, dark brown body with a dense beige head on top. It has a lovely aroma with chocolate, coffee, sweetness and dried fruiots, as well as a lovely hop profile with pine, resin and citrus, mostly orange. Chocolate and coffee flavor, rather burnt, with fruity hop flavors, citrus notes, pine and resin. Full, rather dry mouthfeel, and a long, piney and resiny finish with citrus. This is one of those lovely beers with layers and layers of aroma and flavor. The aroma being the best of those though. Nice. (080301)

Bottled (vintage September 2007, Vasa session).
Deep ruby-brown color, creamy beige head, some lace. Aroma is mix of yeast, hops and bread - like sniffing dirty socks (Miksu said that it is oxided hops). Crisp carbonation. Sticky hops in powerful body. Finish has licorice and grapefruit juice. Good beer.
