Muggus69 (2755) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2017
The beer is amber colored with a nice creamy head and good carbonation.
The aroma is malty and has notes of caramel, dark fruits, licorice, spices, fresh hops and citrus.
The taste is full bodied sweetness with notes of malts and caramel, dried fruits, licorice and goes to medium bitterness with notes of spices and some roasted and cacao notes.
The finish is dry and long staying bitterness.
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 31-10-18 Shark_Pants (769) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2017
Rather attractive brew - deep reddish copper, dense off-white cream.
Interesting nose - ripe strawberry, brown toffee, cream/vanilla, herbal malts, brownish toast, grapefruit.
Full body without being rich/big, drying sort of bit of acrid roasty character cuts through things.
Dark caramel sweetness upfront, bit of toast, vanilla, red fruits, plums, herbal hops, plenty of bitterness, touch of sort of dark roasty, almost chocolate character emerges with warmth. Plenty of bitterness, booze kicks through eventually.
Very unique beer - unlike anything I’m yet to come across, and enjoyable.
330ml bottle BB 31 Oct 2018. Slightly hazy copper red with nice beige head. Big pine and resin aromas, along with some rockmelon, paw paw, toffee. The taste has big pine flavours, lots of caramel, some toasted bread, resin, marmalade - quite sweet, moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and drinks scarily much less than the big 9.4% ABV. Pretty good. mike_77 (7136) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2017
Red brown colour with lasting fluffy head. Aroma has lots of piney, resinous hop. A little bit of caramel too. Flavour is intense. Very bitter and sweet. Somewhat stewed and syrupy feeling. Maris (1596) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2017
From a 330ml bottle on 9/7/2017 (ABV listed as 9.4%, IBU 77). Pours a clear dark golden with a biggish head. The nose has some caramel, fruit with some resinous notes at the back. Taste wise, it’s very sweet up front with lots of candied and ripe fruit (apricot and peach), followed by big resiny hops, against a light caramel background. The palate is a touch syrupy and the carbonation is moderate. A really big and very enjoyable red ale, with the only knock being a slight harshness in bitterness. mmmeinike (326) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2017
Cloudy dark amber appearance with long lasting white head. Malty, hoppy and citrus aroma. Taste of lime, grape, grass and exotic fruit.
