Draft at brewery. Hazy copper with medium off white head and nice lacing. Aroma of grains and a hint of hops and spice notes. Medium body with a nice malt presence and a bitter hop finish. Wish the nose has as much hop presence as the taste.

Ein simples, klassisches Strong Ale ohne grosse Punkte. Malzig, mit einem guten Bumms Alkohol, ordentlich Kohlensaeure und etwas Getreide. Ganz nett.

Nice fruity slightly sweet taste with flavor of herbs and yeast with a good hoppy bitter finish. Not the most subtle but a very original ale. I never had anything quite like it. It is strong but the alcohol is not dominant. I am lucky to live in Amsterdam and have ít IJ as a local brewer.
