3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BarleyWine, lively at first but settled to a flat red-brown in the glass. A little malt, earth and something musty on the nose, initially sweet on the palate then slightly sour, with liquorice and a touch of red fruit coming through, followed by a mustiness, then chili and more liquorice, which linger into the aftertaste, along with a saison/brett-like note. Oddly drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kihoskh, february 16th 2013. Dark brown body, red tint, big foamy brown head. Aroma of licorice, roasted malt, citrus fruits. Taste is roasty with licorice and a light chili presence, which as usual grows down the glass. Being a sucker for chili in beers I like the way it’s presented here. Lifting the bitterness is a light apricot taste, which also helps balance the spiciness. Aftertaste is licorice and roast, leaving a mild hot chili taste. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ BarleyWine, Cph.
Pours deep red to dark brown with a small, frothy and light fizzy beige head. Aroma has clear liqourice, mild roasted malts, a touch of biting chili. A mild buttery note. Highish carbonation, fine dryish and fat mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of liqourice (really a lot!), chili is mild and more herbal than biting. Mildly roasted, but this is really about the liqourice.
