HKdIPA (819) - HONG KONG - APR 16, 2016
Bottle from Craftissimo at home after drum performance. Dark black pour with puffy tan head. Aroma is a bit farmy, a bit roasty, some earthy hops - subtle but nice. Taste is very round - a bit of everything. Some roasted dark chocolate-ish malt, some bitter hops, some farmy yeasty flavors, some spice and clove, some booze. Smooth but not rich palate with nice carbonation. Very interesting. ByTheirLimpin (321) - New York, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Bottle to tumbler. January 2014 bottling. Didn’t catch it until I was pouring, but it held up. Dark ruby brown in the glass. Nose was vacant. Palate was intriguing. Little sweet blackberry somewhere up front. All barnyard and malts thrift through the middle. Complex, sticky. Little fine fizz to the syrupy mouth.

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Dark brown body with slight head. Nose is oaky, plums, berries, caramel, malts. Really nice. Taste very malty, roasty and plummy too. Nice smooth texture. A really clean beer. Want to drink slow and enjoy. Garrold (5341) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2016

Well balanced and complex. Sweet and yeasty with fruity aftertaste. Goes down alomost too easy, but a memorable beer.

Marrone scuro, poca schiuma. Aroma di malto con note tostate molto. Lievi. Bene al palato dove si conferma una nota tostata e un finale un pelo amaro. Baramba (1038) - ITALY - DEC 23, 2015
