tfredvik (1670) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a cloudy, very deep brown body with a fairly large, creamy, brown head that is both long-lived and capable of decorating my glass with foam. Hoppy, malty, sweet and very strong aroma of roasted malt, tropical fruits and grapefruit, with coffee, herbs and sugars in the back. Very strong flavour of tropical fruits, grapefruit and roasted malt in the form of coffee and chocolate, and hints of ash in the back. Moderate sweet taste with a moderate bitter long-lasting finish. Very pleasant mouthfeel, with a full body, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. A very well crafted BIPA, with an excellent hops/malt balance!
[33 cl bottle, batch 232, enjoyed 7 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge, Oslo]

Syfher (301) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; drinked from the fridge. One of the best English beer I’ve tryed so far : the colour is a wonderful deep dark black one, with a brown head. The aroma is overhelmed by the hop and caramel. The taste is, well, very hoppy with the characteristics of a stout in the same time. Woaw.
