Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 Wonderful aroma from the hops, chinook and amarillo? Taste is good, lovely bitter sweet combination. Really nice balance to this beer, some dark candy sugars. It pours dark brown with a bubbly light beige head. One of my favourites of the beer festival, lovely, lovely beer.

Tap @ BBF. Dark brown color, short head. Aroma of hop, caramel malt. slight fruity. Malty taste and very bitter. This description is probably useless for you, as it could be from about 50% of the beers on this website, but what matters it that it just tastes good :P Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2009
Tap @ 1ste Borefts. A dark brown colored beer, with a thick dark beige head. The aroma of hop bitters with several fruits like citrus and orange. The taste is sweet with bitter hops. Als a lot of fruits. In the back there are the hops again.The aftertaste is bitter with some sweets. bierkoning (13352) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2009 Tasted from tap a few weeks before the festival and @ the 1st BBF, De Molen. Dark brown color. Overwhelming mandarin curacao aroma. Roasty flavor challenged by mandarin curacao. A firm earthy, oily hopbitterness.The abundant aromas and flavors somewhat overwhelm the obvious alcohol notes and make the balance questionable. A taste bomb.

On tap at In de Wildeman. Muddy dark brown colour, soapy off white head. Aroma of full on grapefruit hops. Flavour is malty, dark fruits, sweet and very hoppy, lots of citrusfruits, bitter drying finish. Medium to fullbodied. Nice, but a bit one-dimensional because of the huge amount of hops used.
