3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle into a brandy snifter.Pours a dark copper with a beige head of foam that dissipates down to just a ring around the edge of the glass. The aroma is fairly malty and sweet with a more herbal feel to it than anything. Maybe some tree bark. Earthy and leathery. Taste is somewhat bitter, but more leathery and bark-like. Pretty enjoyable and definitely something I could drink several of before getting tired of it. Not too heavy at all.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A-- Poured a dark, somewhat clear amber copper color. Attractive enough looking. Started as light brown film and had to coax a two finger head by vigorous swirling. Settled back to film then. Some spotty lacing.
S-- Pine, grapefruit, lemon, slightly grassy, and lots of Carmel.
T-- Toffee, near burnt. Orange, lemon, grapefruit, and more grass.
M-- Watery in mid and back palate. Front is more metallic than anything else really. Low carbonation and somewhat puts me off in drinking this.
O-- Not real good. Decent looking and decent smelling. Comes apart after that.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Beer Temple Amsterdam. Deep clear amber pour, frothy head but minimal lacing. Malty aroma, but the real enjoyment comes from the heavily hopped spicy taste. A real hop lovers dream. Very refreshing when served cool and at 6.2% it has just the right level of alcohol for a session!
