1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Chestnut brown with a fine light brown head. Caramel and chocolate malt aroma along with herbs and spices, cloves comming to mind. Very herbal and spicy flavor giving it a harsh bitterness and an unplesant sharp raw spicy finish. The malty sweetness is nice and complex, but overpowered. Would probably be a good beer without the spices.

cloudy brown, smooth beige head.
aroma is malts, urine, various mild spices
flavor is malty, spicy, quite blended, same dry malty hoppiness like a black ipa, but also some sweet malts and quite a lot of spices. I didn’t like the aroma though.

(Bottle). Spicy scent and a strange taste to say the least. Incredibly spicy flavor with clear hints of cloves, cinnamon and herbs. Once you become accustomed to the taste, it is quite okay.

Bottle @ WWT II. Pours a clear amber beer with a small beige head that leaves little lacing. Lovely pour.

Very spicey, with a longlasting, dry bitter finish. Very nice winter warmer
