Hint of sweetness that often haunts double IPAs. Strong bitterness, particularly when a bit warmer.

Cloudy dark amber color with creamy head. Some fruity hop aroma, and vanilla, but not extremely fresh. Soft and round mouthfeel, sweet malt flavor (very good one); good bitterness level with nice subtle hop fruitiness, becoming a bit resiny in the end; also some alcohol warmth is detected in the end.
Fresh would be better; now it borders into an American Strong Ale.

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark reddish-orange beer under a long lasting beige foam; nice lace; hoppy aroma with notes of cream, tea and almonds; full-bodied, some malt sweetness and a fair yet not as big as expected bitterness; long hoppy finish of apricot and flowers with hints of pine needles
