Fantastic beer. Lots of anis in both the aroma and taste. Nice smooth mouthfeel, slight alcohol sensation (which I love). Truly great beer. Reminds me of a mild version of Gouden Carolus Noël.

330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Sticky sweet aroma, some vomity hint. Nice caramelly malts though, and the spiciness is interesting. There’s clove in the taste, rich malts, with some nutty corners. Spicing fits in well. Finish nutty. Shame about the flaws in the aroma.
