Bottle: Poured a dark brown color ale with a nice medium foamy head with slightly better then average retention. Aroma of bitter and slightly piney hops is mix with some nice caramel malt. Taste is somewhat reminiscent of an hoppy porter (maybe because of the color) with load of roasty/sweet caramel malt and a bitter and slightly piney finish. Body has real creamy texture with medium carbonation and no alcohol could be detected. If I had to rate to style, then I’m not sure this would score very highly since it is quite off for the style. Since I am not rating to style, I thought this was a really good beer that doesn’t really fit into a define style.

Shared pint bottle thanks to JSquires via Papsoe. Big head with soapy bubbles on brown, lacing. Very bitter, carbonation tingle the tongue. Hop oily, herbal character. Warming alcohol. Did not get the malt and the balance, rather astringent hop leaf.
Second bottle via Boutip, fresher and 8 months later, An imperial pale, quoting Old Faithful. Dark, piney, lacey. Well done and upgraded substantially.
Had it again two years later, appearance of black with lots of lace and big head. Aroma of barley and hops. Just as big and different.

50 cl bottle at Delirium Cafe in Gothenburg, Sweden.
New at May 13.

Dark brown color, small white head. A bit hazy.
Very hoppy (American) scent mixed with some chocolate. Some acid smell as well.
Acid and dark malt taste, some non-hops bitterness.
Good (hops) bitterness.

Deep copper, nicely displayed beige head. Big earthy nose, highly hoppy. Toffeeish choco and caramel malt. Gentle toastiness pleases the nose with makes you think of a good breakfast as soon as you grasp those maple notes. greeny hops remain moderate at this point, but in mouth, it feels far more floral, barky and sweaty. A mild alcohol aftertaste surprises the drinker as this seemed so drinkable. Big brown ale base, woody and smoky flavors, rooty. Creamy medium malty palate. Very good indeed.
