COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

Smalle (214) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle at Gollem in Antwerp. Aroma : I can’t get past the rusty nail / dirty yeast aroma. Taste: sweet, malty, caramel and again an unpleasant metallic character. Will not finish this one

bieremoi (34) - FRANCE - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a nice copper color into a point glass. Good bitterness and hops on the whole but seems too much like a trappiste beer, lacks much distinction.

Brown reddish beer, slightly opaque with very little head. Smell is salty bitter with subtle caramel sweetness. Raisins, nuts and a touch of alcohol. Dark fruit. Pepper. Taste is sweet watery and slightly bitter, with a slightly astringent finish. Resin, caramel and a touch of banana and maybe oranges. Peels in the finish.

darkseduction (656) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2015
Flasche 33cl. Haselnussbraun, trüb wie ein Weizen. Massive beeindruckende Schaumkrone. In der Nase zitrus-grasige Hopfen. Im Antrunk dann der Hopfenbomber, im Nachhall Detonationen in den Bitterknospen der Zunge. Alkohol nur zart spürbar. Wunderbares Hopfenfeuerwerk. Genial!
