Medium bodied, oily texture, average carbonation, and a metallic finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle from Paiste2002, thanks! Blonde. Peach and melon in the aroma. Initial fruit flavors (peach, melon, pineapple) followed by an earthy oily hopbitterness, lingering on in the aftertaste. Full of flavor, but the balance could be better.

Expensive, big bottle shared with Arild and Finn H. at The Rake, London Bridge. Slightly unclear, sunset coloured body. Decent off-white head. Floral hoppy to the nose. Tangerine taste supported by hints of dark spices and quite heavily, dry hopped ending. Well integrated alcohol. Rather sweet textured, but still pleasant to drink (01.08.2009).

Wines, Edinburgh - golden pour with small white head. Aroma and taste is yeasty and malty, some caramel and treacle sweetness creeping in, some dried fruit, nice hoppy backing, decent stuff.

"a dark, dry hopped beer...yummy. fairly unique brew, and even though dry hopped, not overly hopped, especially by Stone’s standards, as another rater noted. frsh re-releases after the 11th anniversary have gotten even better. the last two times i had this nice freshly hoppy dark brew, it’s been awesome
