Muddy brown color with tan head. Aroma is really spice forward buy up you also get coffee and roasted malt. Taste is quite balanced. You really get the base beer and the spice play only the second fiddle. It’s malty sweet, a bit roasty, leans more towards a porter. Bright spices like star anise, fennel but also peppercorns and caraway seeds. Medium body and carbonation with a warming alcohol feel. Really interesting beer overall. It has complex flavors, maybe also due to the Akevitt barrel aging. The only complaint is the slight alcohol feel.

500 ml bottle shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark brown body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of chocolate, caramel, cocoa, some smoke, dark fruits, some soy sauce.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes roasty, dry, a bit sweet, a bit wooden, with some alcohol warmth.

Very nice. Straight and very well balanced, with a pleasant dryness. Really enjoyable style example, although not among my favourite ones.

Bottle. Bottle dark brown body with white head. Aroma is roasted malts with nice dried fruits and hints coffee. Taste is alcohol with dark roasted malts and coffee. Aftertaste is nice balanced between roasted malts bitterness and some malty sweetness with alcohol.

GlasgowTAD (1354) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Pours opaque brown-black with a large, consistent, brown head which recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma smacks the receptors as soon as the bottle is opened; raisins, dates, leather, christmas pudding and oak. Taste is similar - fruity, sweet christmas cake, sweet caramel, slight acidic cranberries/redcurrants, akvavit heat, slightly herbal/medicinal. Full bodied. 2013 bottle.

Fra flaske på Haand Ølfestival 30 Mai 15. Delt med Rune. Dyp brunsvart. Lavt skum. Bra aroma. Mest røstet malt men også syrlig frukt. Smaken tørket frukt og hint av eik. God fylde. Dette er en forbedring av et allerede utmerket øl!
