No distinguishable hop aroma at all, could smell only the alcohol. Taste follows the nose with nothing but alcohol. One of the booziest beers I have ever tasted. Couldn't even finish it.

I knew it being a dark import it wouldn't be like an american IPA but i was still surprised at how far it was from one. It has that sweet almost black licorice taste that a lot of dark imports have. It's not bad but also not something i can drink all night, way too sweet.

A – Bright copper in color with a tall, sticky, white head. Amazing lace.

S – Malty, Belgian yeast tones, musty almost.

T – Bitter, malty, rich, sweet, an amazing quantity of bittering hops come through here.

M – Medium-Full bodied, lingering and lasting finish.

O – Very interesting approach, little to no floral and fresh hops are tasted, but man does this pack a punch with all the bittering hops.

I work at Ramstein AFB and bought two of these at the Shopette on base. They came in .75 liter bottles. Normally, the seasonal beers they get in for the holidays are exceptional and I really enjoy them. This one not so much and for me the killer for me was one thing,... the smell. The overwhelming sent of pine,... but, it probably anise (because I can't imagine them using pine nuts, but, who knows, they could have). Any way, I'm having real buyers remorse in my purchase.
