3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - thanks Martin! Pours a dark reddish-brown with a fast-settling head and aromas of candy sugar plus a slightly musty herbiness reminiscent of aniseed. Initially sweet and malty on the palate, with a light hoppiness and hints of an Old Ale or Abbey Dubbel, the liquorice and chilli then cut in to provide a really good counter to the sweetness. Fascinating stuff, with the liquorice and sweetness lingering, and the chilli level being just right.

Was worried about it being an ale, but the sweetness works wonders! Great beer. The chili is right there, right away, then there’s hints of something else, I’m not sure what, chocolate? And in the aftertaste, there comes the licorice. Bottle, Schouskjelleren, Oslo.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gusher. Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with strong
carbonation and lots of little floating particles. Roasty
caramelly licorice aroma with syrupy spicy notes. Dry-sweet
toffee and cinnamon taste with syrupy ashy notes. Mid-to-full
body. Sharp, hot, burning mouthfeel that lasts long after the
last sip. A bit much, in my opinion. Sweetish roasty earthy
spicy aftertaste with caramelly syrupy notes. It’s not bad, but
too hot. (0.33l bottle, from ... I forget.)
