A big bold, in your face, malty beer! A touch of sweetness to start, nuttiness to follow and hoppy-ness to finish. Give it a little time and let this beer develop and tantalise those taste buds with its powerful and delectable kick of Willamette hops. A complex copper coloured fusion of distinction. There’s a lot going on with this cheeky little beer, so take your time and sup it up.

Desverger (12915) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2013
([email protected] Bridge Tavern, SE London) Reddish/amber in colour with a small head. Aroma/taste of caramel malt, pine and a little spice and sweet fruit on the palate with a bitter finish. Bit watery in body for my liking, but still overall not bad though.

jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2012
Aroma: Caramel, pine, leather and brown sugar.

Appearance: Murky mahogany body with a large off-white head that holds well. Good lacing.

Taste: Very hoppy but balanced by sweet malt flavours. Maple syrup, toffee and pine resin with a subtle plum note. Bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Lively carbonation.

Overall: Impressive balance between sweet and bitter flavours.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of pineapple, caramel, treacle. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2012
[330ml bottle, Drinkmonger, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy raspberry red pour with a quickly-diminishing head. One of the first bottles to reach Scotland. Slightly tangy, spicy pine aroma. Leathery caramel on the flavour, with a slightly bitter yeasty far aftertaste. Decent enough though, like the piney woodyness [26102012]

SilkTork (5854) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 January 2012 Snooty Fox. Big malt - roasty, toasty and sweet, with hints of oak and cobwebs. Well balanced with hops. Good. [4.1]
August, 2013 Pommelers Rest. Bags of malty flavour balanced by deep hops. Good. [3.6]

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2012
[email protected] Beer Festival 2012. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, caramelly, earthy and mildly yeasty and grassy. Flavour is leathery, fruity, wooden, herbal and also has some bitter grass and mild toasted notes. Long aftertaste.

jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Keg @ The Horseshoe, Hampstead. Deep hazy reddish orange with a frothy off-white head. The nose is light marshmallow, angel food cake, some cherries and bread. The taste is medium bitter floral hops, some light smoke. Delicate caramel malts, with notes of strawberry and burned brown sugar. Light tropical mango and hints of cocoa powder. This beer’s quite bitter on the finish. Medium body, but soft and silky, easy to drink. Pretty decent effort!

imdownthepub (15330) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2012
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’12. Copper with no head. Middling malty body, some sharp bitterness along with a baked clay type note, a hint of smokiness. The hops are bittering, leafy, earthy and dry. Wanted to love it but didn’t quite.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London. A mid brown beer with a white head, A fruity but fairly dry bitter. Bready malts. A thin aroma. The taste is fruity. Easy to drink and sessionable but a bit leightweight.
