Bottle, January 2017. Lots of blackberries, bitter orange, subtle lemongrass, dark chocolate, light resin, slight petroleum and dill notes. Sweetish, medium bitter, soft mouthfeel, light mineral aftertaste. Excellent stuff with still room for improvement (by ditching Sorachi Ace).

ogivlado (8446) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottled 330ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Three weeks out of BBE date. Darker brown coloured, medium sized pale beige head, whiff of grapefruit in the nose. Moderate malty, slight roasty, grapefruity hoppy and touch of chocolate with notes of pine and alcohol in the finish. Need to try it fresh but still this one is very good brew.

CanCrusher (1189) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 29, 2017
Bottle 0,33L from Pivoljub beershop, Ljubljana. Deep, dark, ruby brown color with big, frothy, light brown head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, sweet tropical fruits. Moderate bitter taste at the start with heavy grassy, bitter finish. Real punch of bitterness! Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, metallic finish. Very aggressive, but I like it!

4.1
guzgorog (994) - FRANCE - NOV 13, 2017
Robe brune foncée tendance noire, fine mousse beige. Nez très agréable aux effluves grillées (pain toasté, café) et houblonnées (résine fruits tropicaux). En attaque, les notes de pains toasté et de café sont très présentes, puis les notes fruitées viennent équilibrer tout cela, pour finir sur des saveurs franchements grillées avec une légère astringence. Superbe longueur, bel équilibre, amertume prononcée, corps rond, bonne carbo. Superbe bière !

3.5
Idiosynkrasie (8335) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2017
330ml bottle. Hazy, darkest brown colour with small to average, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Piney, resinous, almost a bit sweaty, slightly grassy hoppy and roasty, dark malty aroma, notes of pine needles, cautious hints of dark chocolate. Taste is dry hoppy and bitter, roasty dark malty, piney and minimally chalky, notes of dark chocolate, hints of resin, pine needles; lingering bitter roasty and bitter hoppy finish.
