Pre-DLD bottle share at Hampton Inn. Pour is black with no head. Aroma of orange peel, coffee, caramel, spice, and grass. Flavor is similar but with more ash/roast in there. I didn’t like this one too much.

50 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are chocolate, oranges, coffee, and liquorice - with a slightly bitter finish.

MotherBrother (945) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2014
Pour pitch black, with a small n’ creamy mocha-tan head. Aroma is pretty roasted, which settles a little when this warms up a bit. Roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, licorice and ever so slightly orange/green notes somewhere.. The taste is pretty bitter, with a faint sweet touch up front. Medium bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. Pretty well balanced.

Hoprider (741) - DENMARK - MAR 22, 2014
Nice black pour. Good lacing and a tan dense head. The nose is big on licorice, tobacco and flowers.. even some sherry fruityness. Creamy palate that gets less fizzy after a short while. Taste is sweet roasted malts, chocolate and really dark berries somewhere well hidden. Great aftertaste mostly on licorice and roasted malt. Big thanks to my man Motherbrother for sharing. Boss!

Habanero (4844) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2014
Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing tan head. Arom of roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, chocolate and smoked notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Full to medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A great impy.

500ml bottle thanks to Glouglouburp in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, light citrus, chocolate and coffee, and some dough. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. Another great HF beer. Wish I got to try this fresh, but glad that thanks to a friend I got to try it at all!

Bottle thanks to Jack at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours near black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has very dark grains, bitter chocolate, roasted malts and a bit of citrus. Flavor has smooth dark grains, with a bit of growing roast and a hint of citrus.

TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Finally tried at rbwg. A nice surprise to see this here. Nose is fairly roasty, light peanut, orange zest and a bit of booziness akin to a heavy screwdriver. Flavor is similar- nicely balanced but does not taste extremely fresh. Okay, but I always, underlined, expect more when I know Hill Farm is involved. Hope I can try a fresher sample someday. Thanks to whomever shared this gem!
