bhensonb (12308) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Capped 750. Pours dark brown with a 5 finger creamy light tan head. Aroma of dark malt with chocolate. Could be full bodied. Flavor is dark malt, chocolate and a lot of hop - which does seem to be resinous. It’s very smooth - tho the hop bite interjects. Finishes just a bit ashy, bitter and entirely delicious.

Theydon_Bois (12592) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle split at the Tropical Croydonia tasting on melt day, big thanks to Fergus for sourcing this one, 01/07/15. Mahogany brown with a decent beige covering that retains well. Nose is earthy hop, dark berry fruit, toffee, charr. Taste comprises pine, bitter tropicana, light roast, charr, dark fruit peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with earthy hop bitterness. Decent enough XDA, drinks below the ABV offered.

Iznogud (1470) - CROATIA - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml from MBR, Zagreb. Pours dark brown with beige head. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, dried fruits, light to moderate hoppy bitter finish. Had an acidic note which I don’t think should be there - could be bad bottle.

Hoppy_Luke (632) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 9, 2015
Mocne black IPA o ciemnobrunatnym kolorze i obfitej, beżowej pianie, która pięknie oblepiała szkło. W aromacie przyjemna paloność, gorzka czekolada i nuty kawy. W smaku rewelacja - paloność i czekolada, w głębi cytrusy i kawa. Do tego rozgrzewa przełyk i nie daje poczuć tak dużej zawartości alkoholu. Naprawdę rewelacyjne piwo!
