Pours a murky dark orange color. Very citrusy on the nose with a strange oregano sort of aroma. Plenty of bread and cracker and more herbal notes as it sits. As with the nose, heavy flavors of citrus and oregano, also some cracker and biscuit malts, maybe yeast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pours ugly dark orange color but nice white head and some neat yellow colors showing when light hits it. Lots of caramel and some basil and butter notes in the nose. Flavor has a bit of bitterness, caramel, and herbs. Starting to show some age but MUCH mellower than the bottle a couple years ago at the Fantome tasting. Quite enjoyable now that the spices have mellowed.
