Aroma initially characterized by pepper that fight in a field ruled by a rich fruity fragrance of dried fruits with ripen banana, toffee and a soft sweet chocolate fragrance. The attentive taster shouldn’t miss a sharp floral of rose and a sensation of must of wine always pleasant.

Bottle 750ml. Exceptional beer. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, fresh bread, and alcohol. Taste is sweet and bitter, and long lasting. Palate is syrupy and full bodied. Dark brown, with a thin head.

leghorn99 (240) - Livorno, ITALY - JAN 9, 2015
Si presenta di un bel colore marrone scuro con riflessi rubino; buona la schiuma, compatta e cremosa, ottima persistenza. Naso maltato, con evidenti note di caramello e frutta scura, che si uniscono a molteplici odori di spezie. In bocca è rotonda e delicata, ritroviamo malto e caramello, frutta scura (prugne, fichi), zucchero di canna, una punta di liquirizia e spezie. L’alcool rimane ben nascosto, e non disturba la beva, la carbonazione è leggera. Leggero tocco amaro nel finale che simula un tocco di equilibrio a "La grande dolcezza". Birra che resta comunque di grande complessità, e che vale la pena avere sempre in cantina.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Cask at the White Horse Old Ale Festival, 27th Nov 09. Very dark brown looks. Amazing nose - cereal, christmas cake, spices. Tastes superb - so much spice and fruit, with a wonderful peppery hint of the alcohol in the finish. An utterly sublime Christmas beer. Awesome.

shrubber85 (10760) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle. Sweet banana, rose, cherry, white pepper and barley malt aroma - excellent. Dark reddish brown with small head. Sweet floral fruit flavor up front followed by chocolate malt and astringent alcohol. Excellent - enjoying this one by the fire on a cold, dreary German New Year’s Day.

Bottle. on ØJ-dag. @ YNWA, Kolding
Pours a deep red with lots of bubbles in the liquid. Head is creamy, off white and stays for quite some time. Sweet aroma, light strawberries and a roasted spicyness. Full, lively and still a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is dominated by slightly burned caramel, apples, chocolate, strawberries, toffee, cinnamon, coriander and cardemum. The spices never ’take over’, lying perfactly balanced in the back. Lightly dry and spicy sweet aftertaste.
