COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

Bottle. Didn’t minde it, quite salty, with some slightly earthy smells (slightly farmyardy). Quite yeasty, with a dry finish. Quite liked it, a bit too much alcohol at the end.

As the label already claims this is a complex beer. And a "heavy weight fir beer lovers". The appearance is very good, nice hea and lacing. Amber clear beer with well balanced carbonisation. The taste is bitter sweet. In the pallet the sweet goes little to sour. And that's a pitty. Don't drink to cold as that emphasises the sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smaakt vol, kruidig, lichtmoutig, onaangename bitter, heeft iets weg van Pauwel Kwak

On tap at BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Clear orange colour lasting cream head. Ester aroma. Banana and peach. Nut shells too. Good Belgian ale. It’s so nice after dipas to get a strong hoppy Belgian. White pepper finish likeable belgian ale well balanced.

EvNa (268) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2017
Bottle. Color: Amber, orangish. Small off white head. Taste: Rather complex. Starting fruity, turning to rather bitter and after that going to the sweet side. Caramel and slightly orange peel notes. Bittery mouthfeel at the finish. Not my all time favorite, but a nice warming beer for once in a while.

Bottle at home, 7th January 17. Pours a light translucent copper. Aroma is yeast, sweet malts. Taste is bitter, yeasty, some caramel. Great bitterness, with some good balance from the malt, almost a bitter Belgian yeasty imperial IPA, complex and drinkable
