2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Pale brown with brown head. Very agressive and hoppy aroma. Taste much too hoppy and boozy actually nothing else but hopps and alcohol. Finish very hoppy. How to tur a quad into a DIPA. Completely out of style.
The label was interesting. Unfortunately the beer didn´t live up to the label.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Cloudy with a small head. Sweetness dominates producing an in your face flavour lacking any subtleness. I am not a prude but found the name a bit sad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 08/2018.
Pours dark red color with a large, lasting head. Aroma is very sugary and sweet with ripe fruits and caramel, some wooden notes, yeast and mild hints of peppery spices. Flavor is also extremely sweet, lots of plums and raisins, brown sugar, caramel malts and mild yeasty notes. Medium carbonation, full-bodied, creamy caramel finish. Alcohol comes through a bit but nothing too disturbing, at least not when moderately chilled. Waaaay too sweet though.
