Flaska i snygg kartong från SB. Tack Daniel. Mahognyfärgad klar vätska med lågt krämig skum. Redan i doften märker man att det här är mer BW än DIPA. Stor, söt och fruktig med madeira, fikon och pomeransmarmelad. Stor kropp, söt, toffee, torkad frukt, pomeransmarmeld med en hel del beska. Helkropps-DIPA med massor av malt. Maffigt och mycket gott.

January 2018 - Tasting in Hackney. Bottle shared with big thanks to Scopey. As 'Fuller's Imperial IPA', 10.5%, presented in a green box. Pours a dark amber brown, translucent and still with a bubbly light brown head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, orange slice sweets. Body is light and frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is sweet – and that's an understatement, lots of orange peel and resin, rich and syrup-like, liqueur. Silly sweet but I like it.

Bodney Towers Bottleshare. Thanks to Paul for this rarity. Almost clear amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and fairly dry, reasonable fine carbonation. Malt forward start, rich and caramelly. Cakey fruits and mild spice. Little piney orange peel. Light spicy finish. Nice old school DIPA, very drinkable.
Bottle shared in Hackney - thanks to Paul. Pours clear copper with a frothy, khaki head. Toasted grains in the nose, caramel, brown bread, leaves. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with more toasted grains and caramel, leathery berries, earthy and leafy bitterness. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, some brown sugar, bitter earth, crunchy grains, more berries. Interesting. A VERY old-school DIPA. Scopey (16529) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2018 Bottle shared at LKS. It pours clear mahogany brown with a decent bubbly beige head.

The taste is dry, bitter, oily, resinous, warming alcohol, piney, woody, sticky, brown bread, fruit cake, peppery spice, toffee and orange marmalade. Medium - full body, fine carbonation and slick mouth - feel. Rich and moreish. Not a classic DIPA, but nice anyhow. NosirIwont (2658) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2018
Bottle. 10.5%. Best before end 2027. 10 cl. sample. Pours a slightly hazy, dark amber/brown, with a light tan head. (Funky) hop aroma, malt, dark fruit, hint of wood. Flavour is sweetish, with dark fruits, hops, malt. Sugary hint. Bitter finish with dark fruits and an alcohol burn. Overall okay, but maybe a bit too heavy for the style, even if it is an imperial. 13.01.18. faroeviking (11389) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 13, 2018
