3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber colour with a medium good lasting beige head leaving fair lazing. The aroma is spiced (mainly cinnamon), with liquorice, roasted malt and some dark fruits. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is spiced and bitter-sweet with liquorice, roasted malt, caramel and hops. Well lasting spiced mildly roasty finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
courtesy of oh6gdx - cloudy reddish-brown colour with a firm and persistant beige foam leaving a nice lace; heavily spicy aroma showing strong notes of cloves and cinnamon; herbs and orange; very fine carbonation, sweet and medium to full-bodied, very tart palate and a respectable bitterness; long spicy finish with notes of gingerbread - not bad though a bit chemical

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Not an ideal sauna beer, but we had no choice. (Tasted with Tranquility). The light aroma is welcome, but the floweriness is perhaps out of place. Odd taste, hard to categorise. Not bad, but not great either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle, thanks Fatphil-Dark brown with red tinges. Fruity spicy aroma with a hint of raisins. The cinnamon is not particularly evident in the taste of the beer but there is a mild spiciness. Drinkable and another good beer from Proef!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,33 l bottle. Ruby color with thick tan head. Strong cinnamon aroma with notes of clove and caramel. Strong cinnamon and ginger flavor giving long woody finish. Sweetish and rather thick. Brings to mind some chinese sauces. The spices are over the top, but this get better towards the end. I guess it takes some time to get used to the spices.
