Bottle, 355 ml. Almost clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Fat, earthy, spicy and grapefruity hop aroma with tropical fruits. Medium body with a heavy dose of caramel malt and a fruity medium bitter hop bitterness. BeerBaboon (2083) - FINLAND - SEP 19, 2012
Colour of copper, white head. Aroma of black tea, caramel and aromatic hops. Flavour is bitter, sweet and piny. It also tastes like caramel. JStax (6365) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a brandy snifter.Pours a dark copper with a beige head of foam that dissipates down to just a ring around the edge of the glass. The aroma is fairly malty and sweet with a more herbal feel to it than anything. Maybe some tree bark. Earthy and leathery. Taste is somewhat bitter, but more leathery and bark-like. Pretty enjoyable and definitely something I could drink several of before getting tired of it. Not too heavy at all. fletchfighters (1520) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2012
A-- Poured a dark, somewhat clear amber copper color. Attractive enough looking. Started as light brown film and had to coax a two finger head by vigorous swirling. Settled back to film then. Some spotty lacing.
S-- Pine, grapefruit, lemon, slightly grassy, and lots of Carmel.
T-- Toffee, near burnt. Orange, lemon, grapefruit, and more grass.
M-- Watery in mid and back palate. Front is more metallic than anything else really. Low carbonation and somewhat puts me off in drinking this.
O-- Not real good. Decent looking and decent smelling. Comes apart after that.

Bottle. Pine and some citrus in the nose. Slightly hazy orange color with a creamy head. Initial is all strong hop, a cutting bitterness in mid with some fruitiness (peaches) in the background, and final also a bit strong... with some metallic notes as well. Medium-heavy body, A sharp hoppy brew. The finish is just a touch off, ink or acid or .... bconch (408) - - JUL 31, 2012
Taken from old notes. Sweet nose with caramel notes. Taste is same with some bitterness. Finish is clean. jmgreenuk (9326) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle at the Beer Temple Amsterdam. Deep clear amber pour, frothy head but minimal lacing. Malty aroma, but the real enjoyment comes from the heavily hopped spicy taste. A real hop lovers dream. Very refreshing when served cool and at 6.2% it has just the right level of alcohol for a session!
