3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Much malt in the smell, sweet bread, nuts, hard bread, a bit dusty.
Appearance: A brown clouded beer with a tan head that leaves little lacing, good curtains though.
Taste: The taste starts sweet and malty, brown bread with honey, then a long spicy feeling.
Palate: Little carbonation, soft and smooth texture that turns into a slightly dry and burning finish.
Overall: A well balanced, good spiced beer, the rye and pepper goes well together.
Note: Bottle at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2011-10-29.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of toffee and malt. Cloudy amber brown color, bubbly beige head cover, sheets of lace. Taste is solid caramel malt that adds medium carbonation on the swallow before moving to a mildly hopped finish. Accent on the malt here, but very well done. Especially solid for 5.6% abv.

Hold da op. Ingefær og chili....Den smager måske godt, men som en anden anmeldelse, så dur den slet ikke til at drikke alene. Åbner lige en pose chips til....Det hjalp da lidt.

Bottle. Cloudy mahogany pour with a beige head. Aroma is caramel, pepper and subtle fruit notes. Taste is caramel and some light fruit up front, finishing with pepper and a dry spiciness lingering. Too much pepper for my tastes, overpowers everything else, but still kinda tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A murky brown body with a modest head. Nose is dominated by black pepper laced with some coffee and roasted cocoa beans. Taste has nice nice roasty and sweet flavours but the aftertaste is dominated by a rather strong peppery burn.lively carbonation and quite palate. The nose and taste upfront are fairky standard and even a bit bland but the pepper really comes on the finish and gives a hefty punch.
