3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thank you so much Jorrit for presenting this beer to me. I had this beer many times at the brewery but never rated that - so this time bottled:. Huge frothy white head that lasts for eternally. Hazy dark orange color - nearly light brown. Yeast nose - like rye bread dough. Beautiful taste, kind of peppery first followed by caramel, yeast and chocolate, finishing dry and hoppy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large white head. Sediment in beer. Honey fairly clear color. Strong Citrus clove smell. Sweet and creamy initially to the palate. Not to bitter with hops. Uses the same type of hops as the Zatte. Hops are unique tasting and tempered nicely by malt. They are bitter but meaty and well rounded. Believe it or not itís like liver to me. For a 9% the alcohol is very well hidden. Has a bitter trail.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) There ought to be hop-alert printed somewhere on this beer, this truly is a bitter beer. Dutch beers this strong are usually malty and sweet, and even though this certainly contains some malty sweetness the hops overpower everything. A spicy, aromatic bitterness - but bitter indeed. Very bitter. Dark amber with a gigantic, beige shaving foam-like head. A truly unusual beer. 210304

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BB 05/2006)
Hazy orange-brown, huge slightly off-white head. Orvasl-like aroma: lemon and leather. Lemon acidy, bitter flavor with long acidy aftertaste with grassy notes and a bit of Jšgermeister. Alcoholic punches. Slightly restless palate but otherwise another good brew from ít IJ.

This must be my favourite IJ beer, but I truly like most of them. Alcohol is well hidden, malty. Excellent ale.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a medium creamy off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, strawberries, citrus, sweaty gym socks, and florals. Flavor of malt, yeast, fruit, and spices.

Good dark amber with a nice glow. The off-white head is huge and creamy dense. Bready, yeasty, and fruity. Bit of caramel, cotton candy, mandarin oranges, nutmeg and bubblegum. Slight bite of alcohol. Lingering hop bitterness in finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew poured a large sized head of frothy fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a very hazy yeasty brown colored body with suspended carbonation and a good lacing. The aroma was vinous yeasty malty and dusty. The mouth feel was tingly and smooth initially then mellowed in its lingering smooth slightly tingly finish. It had a mild vinous brown malt flavor.
