3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Spicey aroma. Taste of sweet herbs, slightly sour body and some spicey vanilla. Like drinking a forest potion. Weird, not per se very good, but enjoyable in a way that’s hard to define.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Yespr’s. It pours deep amber with a small beige head. The nose is brown bread, meaty, light toast, toffee sweetness and spice. The taste is quite sweet upfront, toffee, raisin, alcohol, fruit loaf, candy, spice, brown bread, wood and some bitterness with a warming finish. Medium+ body, prickly carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. No real depth and a bit hot. Not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours hazy amber with a medium beige head that leaves a lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel,rye, alcohol, and some vanilla. Taste is malty, alcohol, caramel with some sweet vanilla notes. A bit strange beer, where I feel that they have put a lot of stuff in the boiler and made a pray that this will be good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tan slowly dissapating medium head aver a hazy reddish brown beer. Pronounced aroma intensity of Dark, dried fruit, malty bread, vanilla, rose hip, sweet spice, the rye faintly reveals itself on nose. Good attack of medium bodied, finely carbonated semi roasted beer, somewhat sweet but with an integrated medium plus bitterness. The roast-malty, christmas spiced dried fruit is pleasant, not too heavy, a nice development sweetish midpalate eases into a good more dry long finish which invokes the idea of acidic, sour and even salty. I think it’s a lovely beer.
