2007 version on keg at Craft heads. Big caramel, cherries tons of milk chocolate sweet malty nose. Mildly sweet so integrated body. Thick body. Excellent and has aged so so well. BlazerT (1082) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep red almost brown with medium, densed, ligh brown head. The head retention is not co bad, as well lacing. Heavy malty aroma - mainly caramel and toffee. In the second row some medium fruity and piney notes, but partly covered by heavy malty profile. The taste is highly bitter, the real hop bomb. The bitterness is long and intense, little balanced by malty sweetness. Full body, sticky and oily texture, average carbonation. Finish is bitter and hoppy. Alcohol warming is quite recognizable. tlind2 (1708) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015

66 cl bottle at Irreale, Madrid.
Pours cloudy dark amber with fawn head.
Aroma is extremely complex and intense: Pedro Ximenez, figs, dates, quince custard, strawberry jam, ripe banana...
Taste is complex as well. At once fresh, metallic, sweetish and very bitter, with a long aftertaste that lasts long, long, long. melush (3941) - SPAIN - MAY 29, 2015
