Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a hazy mahogany colour with a beige head. Aroma of red berries, heather, pine, ammonia and leather. The flavour follows up and is quite hoppy with lots of pine, grapefruit and grass. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body, a solid but balanced bitterness. A both hoppy and malty ale. Decent. esp0r (2866) - NORWAY - APR 24, 2016

Pour dark brown, quite dark in glass, big tanned dense head. Smell of citrus hops, toast, caramel, dark fruits and dark malts. Medium sweet, toasty malts, citrus hops, dark fruits, caramel, some coffee notes, all in all quite complex. Medium bitter, resin tail. Very nice imperial amber (or american strong ale here on RB). I enjoyed it quite a lot

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Good-looking, dark ruby colour, half-inch sticky head, good retention, leaves a thick bubbly layer and considerable lacing. Aroma is hoppy with DIPA-like intensity, biscuits, and red fruits with a whiff of acetone. Soft carbonation, very smooth mouthfeel, medium body. Highly well-balanced taste with solid bitterness, ’deep’ salty-sweet fruitiness, hint of menthol. Long fruity-bitter aftertaste. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2016
