Appearance is probably my favorite part of the beer... nice reddish brown pour with an almost pinkish head. Good hop smell initially but the roasty malt comes through as well as it opens up. Smells like Stone SSR. Roasty bread and subtle hops, mostly caramel malts. Decent stuff.

Bottle at home. A mind blowing smell and a solid bitter after taste make this one an enjoyable and relatively easy drinking ale.

vipinvelp (4332) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2017
Clear dark ruby, tanned lacing foam head. Hoppy aroma and quite bitter in taste. Do no quite classify this as an amber ale, more dark IPA. Still OK though. (Velp 201704)

skortila (5735) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2017
Bottled. 15cl sample. Old note. The aroma has caramel, pine, citrus, quite some fruit. Dark coloured beer with a medium sized off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter with caramel sweetness and piney hops, citrus, fruit. Medium bodied beer.

Maris (1488) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 4/2/2017. Pours a murk amber with the barest of heads. The nose features some caramel and fruit notes. Taste wise, this is big and assertive, coming across as bigger than 7%. Theres lots of sweet caramel and brown sugar, with a hint of fruit as well, but its defined by huge, assertive, lingering, resiny hops (Hop Flood is indeed an appropriate moniker). Full bodied with average carbonation. Damn this is good stuff. Big, complex, challenging and extremely satisfying. Probably better classified as an American Strong Ale. Another top flighter from Evil Twin.

Dervock (1272) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2017
Bottle- pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is malty, flowery with a bit of sugar. Taste is malty with an astringent hop hit which slowly fades to a roast burnt sugar and hop finish.

ANZUShophunter (413) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2017
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. Pours an opaque mahogany with a frothy tan head. An earthy malty aroma leading into rich taste broad in both malt and hop profile. A nice lingering bitter finish.

Lovely stuff this. Loads of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuity malts... Bit of pine and resin, low bitterness. Dry finish. Lovely.
