Boxereddy (479) - BELGIUM - JAN 7, 2016
Helder koperkleurig bier met grote witte schuimkraag. Kruidige neus, een beetje stoffig en aards. Smaak is karamel, toffee, aardse hop. Middelgroot tot zwaar mondgevoel met ruimkoolzuur eindigend met een pittige en bittere afdronk.

artemb (830) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JAN 1, 2016
Aroma: toffee, caramel, almost no hops. Taste: sweet caramel with light to moderate bitterness. Flavour: caramel, malt, some rotten malt notes. Pleasant but they need more prominent hops for IPA.

SinH4 (3641) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2015
Copper color with big white head. Aroma is spicy, herbal, earthy, caramel, something dusty in there as well. Taste is also caramel, toffee, earthy hops, some candy, leading to a spicy and bitter finish. Medium-to-heavy mouthfeel, foamy carbonation. A solid "Old World" style IPA.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Draught, albeit a long time ago. Yeast, grassy and earthy hop notes, herbal flavour, earthy finish. /Unfortunately some notes of wet socks as well. All in all not bad but with fresh hops it wouldnt have been better.

Brodzislaw (288) - POLAND - DEC 10, 2015
Kolor to zamglony/matowy bursztyn. Piana ecru obficie wydostała się po przelaniu do szkła, by z sykiem opaść. Drobne pęcherzyki oblepiły ściany pokala by z czasem opaść niemal do zera. Aromat średnio-intensywny, pomiędzy wytrawnym a słodkim, w nutach chmieli brytyjskich: zioło, herbata, trochę owocw. Całość przypomina musujące wino. Jest też trochę alkoholu (w sumie jest go 7,4%). W smaku jest podobnie, słody w nucie cista/biszkoptu minimalnie karmel i estry owocowe. Przykrywa je ziołowo-herbaciana goryczka, wytrawna. Smak jest wytrawny i podobnie jak smak ociera się o winny. Wyczuwalny jest też z czasem alkohol. Zaskakujący smak, momentami kojarzący się z belgijskimi piwami do tego ze spora dawką chmielowej goryczki.
