spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
330ml bottle, pours dark brown / black, with a lasting just off white head. Aroma is malty, chocolate notes and coffee, with piney and citrus notes from the hops. Med

visionthing (4600) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2015
33cl bottle from some bottle shop in Belgia. Pours slightly hazy dark brow with a rather modest light beige head. Aroma of roasted malt with licorice, notes of coffee and lots of hops with pine being the most dominating, some fruitiness present too. Medium sweet with a nice mixture of roasty and hoppy flavours and a decent, but balanced bitterness. Medium to full body with carbonation slightly on the lively side. Tasty and dangerously drinkable.

Very dark brown colour. Not imperial stout-black. Some roasty aroma’s. Mild coffee. Fresh hops. Not a very strong aroma. Taste: much more hop forward than the aroma initiates. Again mild coffee and roastyness. Little, little bit of sweetness and herbal notes. Long lasting bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2015 Dark, warm beer. Prominent coffee notes, bitter aftertaste. Absolute joy to nip on a lazy evening!

PauloAG (251) - BELGIUM - APR 25, 2015
330cc bottle. Pours dark ruby with tanned creamy head. The nose is fruity, and resin hop. Really feels like having cascade... Great beer! Hoppy but not overpowering. Roasty, sweet but nicely balanced by the hops without being very bitter. Very well crafted. A great beer.

thirstyrabbit (1692) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle. Chestnut body with a tall rocky head. Aroma has nice aromatic hops, they generally feel American but apparently it’s "100% Belgian West Coast hops" (why not just call them coastal - it’s not like Belgium has an East coast). Smooth taste with cocoa and mildly piney hops. Very drinkable - despite the well hidden 9,2% ABV the hoppiness is not unnecessarily over the top and the beer is easily drinkable. I don’t recall a 9% beer that was as quaffable as this. An interesting take on the strong dark hoppy ale style.

sucharek147 (140) - Dębica, POLAND - APR 16, 2015
Barwa ciemno brunatna. Piana ładna, obfita i bardzo drobna. W aromacie czuć wyraźną kawę i paloność. Oprócz tego trochę nut jakby kojarzących się z winem. W smaku na wstępie jest nieco słodyczy, obecna też lekka kawa i niska do średniej goryczka. Ogółem piwo zaskakuje i jest bardzo przyjemne, a do tego zdradliwie łatwo się je pije.
