Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Kinda thin in the finish.

suprchunk (2684) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Cloudy brown pour, once the foam died down enough to see actual beer. Needless to say, huge light tannish head. Slow to fade with a tiny amount of lacing. Huge spicy aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells like a bad pumpkin beer. Tastes like a bad pumpkin pie. Way too much spice. No semblance of beer left. Too much of a spicy aftertaste. It does have a somewhat medium body to it, surprising. A slight malty flavor finally comes through a long time after I swallow it. But that is mixed with a vegetable taste as well. Not very good. One I won’t revisit.

oh6gdx (23143) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2011
Bottled. Quite a gusher. Ambery brown colour with a mediumsized foamy beigeish head. Aroma is raisins, alcohol, spices and some mild notes of honey and some sweet maltyness. Flavour is being quite much the same in a very pleasant balance.

Koelschtrinker (13631) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Sehr eigen wirkender herber Antrunk, der trotz der hier noch merkwürdig erscheinenden Gewürznoten langweilig erscheint. Im Mittelteil ist das Bier weder würzig noch in besonderer Weise aromatisch, zum Ende trocken hopfig. Den Sternanis merkt man im Mittelteil nur leicht, dennoch wirkt er zu überproportioniert. /7/7/6//6

13/04/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 07/10/12 (2011-147)

Note: it shouldn’t have come as a surprise after having had the same experience with the Blonde, but it did anyway as the gusher started pouring upon opening.

Dark purple and pretty cloudy beer, huge towering beige head. Appears aery and fragile at first, but then turns to a more solid, even creamy texture. Non adhesive. Aroma: lots of overripe to even rotting bananas, bit chemical, other ripe to rotten fruits, a faint hint of hops. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: overripe bananas, cloves, a little hoppy towards the end. Aftertaste: more overripe bananas, some mocha hint, still the cloves again, a bit of hops and sugary caramel. Bit cloying. Totally out of balance.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2011
bouteille 33cl. Bière de couleur blonde, col blanc. Arôme malt caramel, houblonné avec note de levure. Fruitée - raisins, abricot et agrumes, note de renfermé/levure. Une bière dont je trouve la carbonation un peu trop haute. Malt reste léger avec une touche de caramel, sucre brun. Houblon fleuri, fruitée, note épicée au fini, alcool réchauffant. Ai eu un peu de mal à cerner cette bière.

Hansen (7803) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2011
When opened it half of it went out of the bottle, overcarbonated? Brown and murky, big head, fully diminishing. Has a malty and sweet aroma, lots of spice, cinnamon. Flavor is heavy sweet, light bitter finish. Creamy texture.
