COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We couldn’t buy the toasted malt we were looking for in this beer so we made our own. Then we mature it for ages on big spicey hops and drink as much of it as we can.

erickok (5037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2016
Red malts, bready, berries, fresh and dank hops, modern. Mixed bag but it works for me, something I would brew myself. Full enough body, bit rough around the edges. Decent bitterness. Lots of cereals and full body for the abv. Again, totally something I would brew myself and unexpectedly so I dig it. (33cl bottle from Saveur Biečre)

Dark amber color, small steady beige head, some lace. Resin, fruits, pine, licorice, sweetish caramel in the nose. Medium-bodied. Oily palate. Front has caramalt, then nice piney-resiny bitterness.

Medium bodied, low carbonation, quite smooth. Strongly caramelly but not too sweet due to bitterness. Good beer.

Cokemonkey11 (364) - - APR 25, 2016
330ml brown bottle. Pours medium brown pale with medium haze and medium thick tan head subsiding slowly. Scent is dense citra hops. Taste is consistent medium dense IPA, early hops, but a yeast body of landbier or maybe pale ale - not plain IPA. Finish is clean and juicy. Great beer.
