madmitch76 (15120) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
13th June 2008. Initially tastes quite medicinal. After a little palate adjustment this smooths out. Semi dry finish. The spice ultimately domniates but doesn’t completely overpower.

harrisoni (13773) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle from Utobeer. Chestnut colour with disappearing beige head. Spicy cola bottle aroma. Argh, this is pretty horrible, just a mess of hops and an empty beer beneath it. Oh god, I must stop drinking this.

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 Bottle, 5.5% at GBBF08. Strange spicy aroma. Clear chestnut colour. Small tan head. Good sweet cookie flavour. Brunkage, whatever spice that is. Quite a lot of it, but I like brunkager and it is balanced OK by malt, alcohol and a tad of smoke. Hint of alcohol or hop bite in the finish, probably paint thinner, but I can live with that.
