It’s a beer for winter. Dark, sticky malty taste with spicy background. Not something you’d want to drink a lot of but an interesting beer to finish a meal with.

Used to love this, but is not as spicy/ gingery as I remember. All smells/ tastes rather artificial .

Smelt of ginger and burnt fruit. Tasted about the same. Couldn't finish a pint - left half. The worst beer I've had in ages. Would never drink again.

Flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en god winter warmer! Lite aroma men meget smaksrik - saftig og med stor munnfylde og diskt\ret bitterhet. Mmm sies det i panelet.
