Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. One of my contributions to the festivities! Pours hazy, bright gold with a moderate, white foam head. Big herbal nose. Nice flavor, lots of thyme, medium to big sweetness. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more herbal character. Quite enjoyable. Wish I had taken better notes.

azzie (737) - Pula, CROATIA - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle 0,33l from Hops Beer Shop in Trieste. Hazy dirty yellow liquid with average head. Smell is very nice, spicy, cloves, cinnamon. Taste is very spicy, again cinnamon and some other spices, ginger maybe. Medium body, light carbonation. Long cinnamon finish. A bit too much cinnamon. Interesting.

SeniorZozo (897) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 1, 2016
Craft Beer Fest Vienna 2016 v1 Dried fruit, spice and ginger on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet with very interesting roasty notes. I daresay this reminds me of barbecued meat, in the best way possible. Finishes a bit dry.

I love ginger so it is tricky to be objective, but overall a nice brew, with malty, caramel, fruity and spicy tastes.

Tap @Open Baladin, Roma. Malty, grainy aroma, caramel and spice. Slightly earthy. Similar flavour, perhaps a touch of citrus. Hmm.

wombat23 (386) - Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Shared 25.4 oz. (corked) bottle. Pours a murky copper with a fizzy white head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma of caramel, malt, and spice. Taste is caramel and sweet malt with faint ginger notes. Not picking up the myrhh, but admittedly have no idea what mryhh tastes like. Carbonation is initially aggressive, but short-lived. Unbalanced; getting mostly malt with almost no bitterness. Not so good, but I doubt this bottle was anything close to being fresh...

darbeer75 (320) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Aroma: malty and fruity; notes of apple juice; Appearance: pours more like a soda than a beer; hazy orange with specs (hopefully spices) floating around; Taste: very unusual; not very good, but "not the worst we’ve had." Don’t taste much ginger and I don’t know what myrrh tastes like. Palate: medium body with long, odd aftertaste; Overall: not awful but definitely won’t buy again.

Pours a redish brown body with a thin head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste is fruity yet malty, nice but a bit rough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Weird off aroma with black pepper and malty base. Pepper taste covers lots of those nice flavours whitch comes in short finish.
