4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap at Black Tuesday release party, and my favorite beer of the night. Poured a medium hazy amber color, nose was ripe with citrus hops, caramel, and vanilla. Taste was very complex, light caramel, vanilla, oak, grapefruit, orange zest, just an amazing beer with many layers and still extremely drinkable.
Bottle to becher pint glass, the appearance was a ruddy burnt amber color with a minimal white foamy head that fell off at a slow pace. Some stringy lace.
The aroma had a clean smooth sweet caramel/toffee malt base rolling over some citrusy sweet and bitter hops. Light earthiness and a little bit of roasted to sweet nuts amplify the overall enjoyment of the nose.
The flavor had the sweetness up front of the prior mentioned aromas to collide with the roastiness and a subtle herbal to floral smooth sweet contour. Aftertaste mixed the caramel/toffee malts with the hops pretty nice. Finish was clean, smooth and sweet.
The palate was medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about it. Carbonation and ABV felt as projected by the brewer.
Overall, pretty damn nice beer by not a cheap brewery, but hey the second bottle I was able to get of this I had with a grilled bacon and parmesan cheese sandwich and well, I have to admit, that was one hell of a pairing! VastActiv (7242) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 5, 2017
