COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is more than a limited edition offering. It’s an enigma in liquid form. At first it looks like a deep mahogany ale, then you take the first sip and notice its distinct hoppy character. We begin with a ridiculous amount of Cascade and Chinook hop varietals from Western Colorado and bring out their flavor with the hop back. Then we double dry hop for even more of that aroma you love. The result is an unforgettable beer from the forgotten time.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Plovmand. Pours amber with a slight haze and a small and creamy beige head. The aroma has sweet caramel, licorice allsorts. Solid body, sweet caramel and cocoa. I really don’t get all the talk about hops here, the hoppiness is not really distinct at all. 140810

yngwie (17237) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2011
Bottle, 75cl corked, courtesy of plovmand. A dark amber beer, clear, and topped by a small, beige head leaving lacings. Nice, resiny hops in the aroma, good meaty maltyness and some alcohol. The flavor is sweet and caramel-like in the back, with resiny, piney hops up front. Nice bitterness lasting beyond the end. Full-bodied and almost astringently bitter. Some warming qualities too. A bit sweetish, especially in the end, but there’s enough bitterness to cope with it. Would still like it drier though. A really nice one, tasteful, big and worth an hour with your favorite chair and glass. 100814

brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: The pour is a turbid brown color with a huge, soapy khaki colored head that sticks to the rim of the glass. S: A nice big citrus nose to the beer, primarily grapefruit, with some other fruit notes such as pineapple. Pretty resinous and piney, but plenty of malt character here too. Solid toast, chocolate, and toffee. T: The malts start things off with lots of toffee and bread flavor. The chocolate notes are quite nice and play well off of the big grapefruit hop character. The flavor is surprisingly creamy and quite smooth. There is a moderate level of bitterness here. M: Medium to full in body with a moderate level of carbonation. D: A nice hopped up brown ale here. Maybe a bit too strong to drink that much of, but it tasted quite good.

MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle, 8.5%. Good refreshing aroma. Cloudy dark red brown colour. The flavour has a lot of grassy hop notes. Good American hop flavour. A bit of hop bite.

3.9
bhensonb (15768) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle from InternetWines.com. It’s the ’09. Pours deeply ruby toned brown with a 4 finger foamy beige/tan head. Smells like roasted malt and chocolate with hops. Full bodied with foamy carbonation. There’s a lot of malt, and I’m still thinking chocolate. There’s also a lot of hop - seems fruity - somewhat grapefruit - but more light stone fruit? It’s really hoppy. It’s really flavorful. It’s getting hoppier with time. Very nice stuff.

3.2
Ratman197 (15376) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2009
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear dark brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of burnt carmel, earthiness, citrus and light cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of burnt carmel, earthiness, pinki grapefruit, orange zest and a hint of cocoa with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish. Strange but interesting beer. This one just does’nt do it for me.

3.8
Tmoney99 (14985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle shared at Natifest 12. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex toasted malt, hop and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.
