Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours black brown with a delicate, foamy tan head. Incredibly fresh nose with some grass, yeast and light pine. Great flavor, very dynamic, medium sweet, somewhat spicy with fresh grass, faint roast and light, zesty lemon. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Medium sweet to finish with light dirt, more grass, earth, light pine, some berry fruits or something, light bubblegum and very mild dark chocolate in the aftertaste. An excellent beer this.

Tap at the brewery in VA thanks to Terry et al. Pours clear, deep red with a smaller tan head. Good retention. Nose is piney, citrus, sharp grapefruit pith. Taste is quite orange and grapefruit peel bitter almost like Black IPA with quenching citrus character. No roast which is nice despite the SRM. Actually some muted bacon and truffle. Rich and gamey. Lovely.
