Bottle shared by Beersiveknown @ tasting at his place. Huge thanks Steve! Clear orange golden color, average sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, light resin, a bit off though. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Ok, decent.

Billynomates solo hotel tasting. Hazy gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Reasonable fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, some creamy sweetness. Mildly spicy hop, some pine and modest citrus. Light finish. A bit malt forward and some more hop fruits would be nice.

Erzengel (9079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2016
Many thanks to beerhunter111 for sharing! The beer starts fresh, not too sweetish but very intense malty. The hops are viscous, intense floral and piney on a sticky and sweetish grainy body. The bitterness is moderate, fresh and even fruity there, mild and sticky floral in the aftertaste. Very interesting stuff, but great.

33cl bottle from a trade with Beersiveknown, many thanks! Pours slightly hazy deep amber colour with a huge most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of strong malt, resinous hops, spruce. Taste of strong toasted malt, apricot, resinous hops, spruce, long bitter finish.

bierkoning (13451) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle. Dark Amber color. Overripe tropical fruit and a hint of wood in the aroma. Malty sweet alcoholic flavor with overripe fruit, peppermint and wood. Firm and tasty

4.3
MelvinKalksma (1630) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and orange; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The almost completely opaque orange is extremely pleasant to look at, such a shame the head diminishes fully. The aroma and flavour are super intense and orangey. The palate is simply sick for an Imperial IPA, it is so thick.

33cl bottle at home from Biernavigatie.nl. Nose is sweetish fruity. Body is opalescent orange copper, head is small, beige, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity, caramel, floral, grass, molasses. Medium sweet, medium bitter, light fruity sour. Finish is long lasting, heavy hoppy bitter. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

(Eight Degrees Millennium) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 10% Dark orange colour on the body, hazy, with almost two full fingers of white thick head on top. Good retention. Aroma is sweet with oranges and biscuits, caramel malts, resin. Taste has more biscuit, light bitterness that builds up but it never becomes too strong, lasting for kong though, oranges, light pine, light tangerine, faint floral notes, exceptionally well hidden alcohol. Medium thick body, soft carbonation. Very good.
