Holmen1 (2779) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Flaske fra polet på Kvadrat: Svart, med fint skum som desverre forsvinner fort. Krydret aroma i tillegg til vanlige porteraromaer (røstet malt, mørk sjokolande og kaffe. Den deilige smaken er ditto, og vaniljen kommer til sin rett ettersom temp. stiger, med litt kanel i tillegg. Stjerneanisen er brukt diskret. Lett syrlighet, fin munnfylde og stor drikkbarhet. Nok et velsmakende brygg fra Fanø. Fra fat på Kick i Kristiansand nov-13: beskrivelsen over og poeng tiltredes, også i år er dette et øl med stor kompleksitet og smaksfylde. Men til en pris som bare astronomer kan like. Alt på denne velassorterte puben har ublu priser.

Vestergaard (453) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012
Pours slightly transparant black with a long lasting light brown head. The smell is very earthy and caramel malty. Not very burned.. Hops fairly present in a not-so-bitter-or-fresh way. Taste: Decent chocolate and some weak christmas specialities. A little licorice in the end. Quite watery palate and taste as well.. Quite nice, and hides the alcohol very well, but it is a little boring.

RasmusOtt (1255) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2012
Pours kinda black with a bright brown head. Aroma of earthy roasted malts, vanilla, sweet chocolate, cocoa, sweet christmas spices,caramel and brownish powder sugar. Taste of gently roasted malts, earthy, chocolate, weak hops in the background, a bit watery and spices. Carries 7,5% very well. Easy drinkable but a bit boring in the long run.

humlelala (1036) - DENMARK - NOV 7, 2012
(on tap @ BrewPub) Pours black with big toffee head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is star anise, roasted malt with hints of coffee. I’ve begun to realise I loathe spices in beer. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body with a roasted bitter finish. The star anise permeates the smell and taste of this beer and does not play well with the roasted malt to my palate.
