bonev (967) - POLAND - SEP 1, 2017
Piwo metne w kolorze jasny bursztyn nalewa sie z obfita iloscia sredniopecherzykowej piany zostawiajace ladny lacing na szkle. Aromat slodkich owocow i karmelu. W smaku slodko ale nie przesadnie zamulajaco, syrop klonowy, kandyzowane owoce i slody. Jest tez nutka cytrusow i chmielu. Pomimo iz duza butla to nie bylo problemow z jej wypiciem.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Super resinous hoppiness clashes with oxidized caramel and alcohol heat in this brash strong ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the misty amber.
-Muted pineapple juice alleviates the roughness.
-Ingredients might jive in a few years.
-Getting tired of these super intense New World strong ales with no refinement or drinkability. They tend to be sold way too early, before all components become a whole.

Bottle.

On tap @ Porto Beer Fest. Hazy orangish golden with a small off-white head. Caramel, dates, raisins and citrus. A bit boozy but nice.

14/IV/17 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 14/XI/17 (2017-445)

Clear dark orange beer, big irregular creamy yellowish head. Aroma: sweet start, strawberry jam, some fruity hops, caramel malts, very dense and heavy, love it! MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very sweet start, malty, sugary, caramel, pretty hoppy, some ripe fruits, mango, caramel. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, some citrus, sourish touch, sugary still, some alcohol, caramel, slightly soapy, lovely beer!!

martjoobolut (5094) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle (from SIP). Pours amber with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, rice, malt, sake like fruitiness.Flavor is sweet and bitter, rice, again sake like fruits, malt, citrus, caramel. Finish is sweet, dry bitter and boozy. Overall: feels like mix of beer and shitty-boozy sake, can’t say I’m enjoying it too much, but it is drinkable.
