bottled, at rbesg08 grand tasting. deep shade of amber with a steady head; aroma of clove and nutmeg with some earthy spice carrying through to the palate; well-balanced for its high abv; like all the other dugges beers i’ve tried, it was flawlessly made but somehow i couldn’t help but think something was missing

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish brown with a large fine foam. Aroma of spices, roasted malt, dried fruit, some yeast and a little bit of alcohol. The flavor was surprisingly mild, given the 9.8%, easy to drink. Tasted coriander and other spices, raisins, fruit and some alcohol. Bitter finish, medium carbonation.
Best before were May 2009, the beer tasted good more than a year after that.
