Almost opaque dark brown beer, tidy off white head. Palate is crisp and a little dry. Minerals. Hops are fresh and mildly fruity, little pith. Fairly peel - bitter. Good malt base with a whisper of toffee and mellow smoke. Finishes crisp and dry with lingering peel - bitterness.

Bottle at the Euston Tap, London shared with Tommy. Pours hazy, red-brown with a fine, beige cream head. Toasty bread nose, hints of smoke. Nice ham and peat flavor, medium sweet with toasty malts, light earth and pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sticky on the finish with some toasty pine, light cocoa, dirt, peat, toasty bread. Great balance and depth.

Theydon_Bois (17228) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to an IP with Essex Jim, 01/01/13. Pours dark dark amber/chestnut brown with a thin off white head that assumes a frothy bubbleness clinging to the outer circle. Nose carries juicy hops, pine, mango, light grapefruit, subtle background rausch. Taste comprises hops, pine, grapefruit, mango, caramel malts, mineral tones, great blend of smoke, enough to be noticed, enough to remain a well balanced hoppy IPA. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, hoppy bitter finish with a touch of smoke. Great stuff, the Tiny Rebel folks never seem to produce a dud ! Bis meine Straße !

33 cl bottle @ lusikka. No.3, BBE 06/2013
Aroma is odd and stale with berries, oaky notes and ash and distant smoky notes. Flavour has berries, ashy notes, some resin and smoky notes. Quite unique stuff.

lusikka (7700) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick white head. Aroma of smoked wood, berries and roasted malts. Flavour of roasted malts, smoked wood, perfume, sweet berries and ash. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, malty, slightly bitter finish. A bit weird.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle @ The Euston Tap. The pour’s deep brown with a medium light tan head. The aroma’s of rich leather, some woodland grassy meadow, light acerbic hop bitterness, mild berry. The taste is juicy hops, mild fruit salad. Field shrubbery, tropical pineapple and salt. These hoppy flavors are ballasted by a smoky, nutty malt presence. More leather on the long finish. Very flavorful. Smooth. Overall, I was worried Tiny Rebel would go overboard on the smoked aspect of this beer. My worries were unfounded. This is lovely, balanced stuff. Great.
