Batch #112--great batch according to Chris. Aroma: grassy hop, some coffee and bitter chocolate aromas. Palate: dry Flavor: mirrors the aroma--grassy hop, coffee and bitter chocolate. Comment: Fortunate to have Chris Poel talk me through this--he aimed for dryness by keeping the malt at a low temperature so most of it converted to alcohol, otherwise, the sweetness would interfere with the hops.

shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 11, 2012
Tap at Popeye. Dark brown, small golden head, soon goes. Aroma, some roast, bit coffee, not so much hoppiness, just bitter from coffee. Taste initial hop hit, grassy hops, quite full on, some grapefruit too. Fades a but further down and get some fruitiness and something floral. Parma violet element with bitter dark choc. Not bad.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 24, 2010
Draft at Popeyes (Tokyo), a dark reddish brown. Big hoppy nose of citrus and pine. The malt is quite subdued, but adds some roastiness.. A decently bitter palate.

KyotoLefty (10086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2010
Draught at Popeye. Very hoppy nose--American hops, with grass and citrus, also chocolate, caramel and a nice dark malt background. Very hoppy flavor with nice earthiness and roasty malts. Chocolate and coffee work with extreme bitterness. Good.

abemorsten (3593) - Mostery, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2009
On tap @ Popeyes February 2009. Clear dark pour with practically no head. Hoppy aroma, pine but also liqorice and dark malts. Tastes like it smells burnt caramel, prune, tobacco. It strikes me that this could be something that Ngne could have brewed. Mild acidic aftertaste. Interesting and recommended!
