9/I/15 - 33cl bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 11/VI/15, bottled: 11/IX/14 (2015-25) Thanks to The_Osprey for the trade!

Little hazy deep brown beer, huge creamy beige head, stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit piny, citrus, caramel, some mocha, sweet malts, cheesy touch, fruity, some strawberry jam. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of citrus, little sour, bitter hops, bit resinous. Aftertaste: soft roast, very bitter hops, resinous, citrus, bit piny, oily hops, long lasting bitterness. Very nice stuff!

Bouteille 33cl partage avec Tderoeck, merci! Brune fonce, col dense et crmeux sur une couleur caf au lait. Dor au verre. Arme sur une pointe de malt, lger chocolat, caramel et grill, houblonn perce en rtro ajoutant une belle balance fruite. Palais est lger en amertume avec une impression de Cascade. Profil malt tirant vers un lger style anglais, note de Maris, cara, chocolat. Fruit rappelant les agrumes, note de pamplemousse, pour un fini rpeux et au caractre anglais. Petite note damertume perce en fin de bouche et balance la part belle des malts.
