4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This was a really enjoyable beer, totally unique and unlike anything else I’ve tried. It has a rich, chocolately, caramel aroma, with a medium roastiness. Upon sipping, it creates an almost paradoxical sensation, with the intense hoppiness of an IPA combined with a rich caramel depth, a bit of dark chocolate, and a sort of dry roastiness, only a moderate roast. The hops have a floral character and are really delightful. Each sip is exciting and this is one of those beers that is so intense that I can’t drink it much faster than sipping it, but I also don’t want to stop sipping it because the aroma and sensations on the palate are so enjoyable.
0.33l bottle @ Hotel Room. This is a deeper colored brown one with a tall near fluffy light beige head. Smells almost more like an barley wine IMO. A really present malty sticky sweetness thats being backed up by a mild roastiness and chocolate. Really good smelling undoubtedly. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and its about average on the carbonation. Chocolaty and cocoa-ish in the taste. Lots of nice bitter hops going on. Traces of licorice also. Really tasty and great with mac and cheese. 14.06.2015 Fmirg (16) - SPAIN - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle. Brown with some reddish tones with light brown head with god lacing. Tastes to some smoked malts but still being a fruity beer. Very recommendable. mcberko (18434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2016
On tap at Angel’s Trumpet Ale House, pours a hazy chestnut brown with a small beige head. Aroma broker out toasted nuts, bready malt and a hint of caramel. Flavour is robust, full of caramel, bready malt, toasted nuts and a dry malty finish. Well-balanced. Malt-heavy for the most part with just enough bitterness to dry this out. Very good.

Burgundy color. Roasted caramel malt, bread and brown sugar aromas. Caramel flavors, bread, sugar and some bitter hops during the finish. Svesse (8692) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
(Bottle) Brown colour with frothy, beige head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, hoppy nose with dark fruit, coffee, dark rye bread, chocolate, treacle, citrus peel, some liquorice and hints of resin. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of dark fruit, crisp-bread, black coffee, liquorice, chocolate, caramel, grapefruit and a generous resiny/citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a touch of sweetness, but overall fairly dry. Complex and tasty with a solid hop bitterness. Still in good balance. Very nice.

Deliciosa combinación de las notas maltosas y a frutos secos de las brown ale con un lupulado potente, protagonizado por el simcoe en la nariz. Nueces, tofe y especias con un toque bien amargo, resinoso y presencia de alcohol Tranquillity (2464) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottled. The body is brown, the head small and light brown. The aroma has nuts, a fair amount of smoke. The taste is strong! Plenty of alcohol.
