This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

DentonShanks' rating

3.8
DentonShanks (25) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Solid drinking beer, a little weak in flavor, not much to stand out, smooth with the very tiny spice, not a bad beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GoddamnNoise (139) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUN 20, 2017
50 cl. can @ Home. Aroma: not very intense aromas of toasted malts, caramel, malts, bread crust, biscuits. Only very subtle hops’ overtones. Hints of alcohol. Appearance: deep amber to brown color with high head thickness. Very creamy foam. Beige head made of mid to big sized bubbles. Low to medium hazyness. Very high retention. Medium Brussels’ lacing. Taste: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, no sourness. Flavors of toasted malts, caramel, bread crust, biscuits. Burnt caramel and roasted malts overtones. Balance is towards the sweetness. No much perceived bitternessat first. Sweet at first and more bitter towards the end. Alcohol level is noticeable in the flavor. Palate: medium body, oily to creamy texture, low to medium carbonation, very long bittersweet (more bitter than sweet and increasingly bitter) finish with flavors of toasted malts, caramel, hints of burnt caramel and roasted malts. The bitterness is slightly astringent. Overall: very good color and appearance. Not very intense but good toasted malts and caramel aromas. Good flavors too. Not much noticeable hops in aroma or flavor. A very good beer. Pretty pleasant and drinkable. Very complex mix of flavors. Intriguing.

Une bière brune, aux reflets rubis, avec une grosse carbonatation et une bonne effervescence. Au nez, caramel, toffee, réglisse noire, et un espèce de côté de grain fumé bizarre que j’ai jamais senti auparavant dans une bière. En bouche, on remarque tout de suite une absence totale d’effervescence, mes yeux me jouent des tours. C’est fort malté! Le gout de toffee est fort present, le côté caramélisé de l’alcool également. Il y a également une petite amertume... ca me fait somme toute penser à un barleywine à l’américaine... avec peut-être un peu moins de corps. L’amertume se fait certainement autant présente qu’un petit côté fumé qui ne démord pas. Pas mon style préféré, mais définitivement une bière complexe qui mérite d’être essayé au moins une fois.

Can. Pours dark amber with lovely fluffy light brown head. Aroma is caramel, alcohol, candy, somewhat metallic. Taste is sweet with caramel, alcohol, somewhat spicey.

Lore (2661) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 18, 2017
beautiful appearance of clear dark amber to mahogany colour, extremely huge, dense beige-ish head, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of dried fruity and resiny notes, some toasted bread and biscuits; taste of intensive hoppy bitterness, malty-syrupy sweetness, some dried fruits and orange zest; great beer but still, will not be my favourite...anyway, its appearance is really one of the best I’ve ever seen so far!

rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Dark garnet beer with a short beige head. Roasted aromas, red fruits, caramel-licorice, bitter of hop. The taste is actually intense, very roasted and dry, with a strong hoppy presence, earthy and citrus-pine. Note of coffee, grounds, wood, dry fruits and herbs. A good industrial beer in spite of the arrogance which we try to rig out.

4.2
Hopverdju (1191) - BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2017
Bruin, roodbruin bier met crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Geur: hoppig, C-hop. Smaak: bitter, hopbitter, groene hop, wat harsachtig, reete strak + nog wat toffee! Lekker! Medium volmondig. Zachte koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: lang, bitter.
