De geur is weeral zoals ipa. Niet goed dus. De kleur is mooi donker. De smaak valt mee, een combinatie van een volle smaak zoals de donkere bieren en een bittere smaak zoals de ipas. Zeer vreemd.

Expected this to be mindblowing, but it is not. No doubt a very good beer with a complex taste anyway!

Good weight and a nice alcohol presence. Hints of Belgian yeast and good hoppy finish. Spices and citrus and wheat notes. Always good stuff.

SvanteL (629) - SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2016
Mörkt rödbrun med ett mellanbrunt läckert krämigt skum. I doften finns lite kaffe och choklad, torkad frukt, pomerans, kardemumma m.fl. kryddor. Smaken är fyllig och komplex med mörk choklad, fikon, dadlar, pomerans, ingefära, kardemumma mm., en fin fruktsötma plus en balanserande avslutande beska. En riktigt julig julöl. Lagrad ett år.

330 ml bottle. Dark amber body with a nice, dense tan head. Aroma has malt, toffee, caramel, some spices and hint of alcohol. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, toffee, caramel, spices and warming alcohol, decent bitterness as well. Full bodied and long lasting strong flavored aftertaste. A solid one.

Bottle enjoyed at home
Dark, black in glass, big tanned head. Smell of toast, dark malts, coffee and some fruityness. Moderate sweet, alot of roast and toast, coffee, dark malts and ash. Moderate bitter. Too much roast in this one comparing to older editions. Not very interesting
