Et nydelig øl med en herlig krydret dyft av pepper og lakris. Lun og god smak med en ettersmak av lakris og malt. Et øl som ikke må være for kaldt. Godt øl som anbefales. Mørk nøttebrun farge nesten uten skum.

Mørk dyp rødbrun farge. Tett fint skum. Dufter søtt med kraftig innslag av einer. Rund og fin smak med tydelig smak av einer. Behagelig ettersmak. Blir nok kjøpt igjen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brown color and well carbonated. Aroma has malt, light spices, and alcohol. There is an herbal quality with spices, but I can’t identify either. Fairly heavy palate and quite smooth. Some alcohol on the palate; it tastes like there is more alcohol than is actually there. I was thinking of a very high quality old ale while drinking this. Not as intense or full of unusual flavors as I hoped, but a very fine beer nonetheless.

Bottle shared by ShareANevada. Poured hazy brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit and juniper aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy spice and dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderated to long duration. Refreshing complex standout beer.

500ml bottle. Beautiful thick creamed coffee colored head which diminishes to nice lacing. Dark molasse color, cloudy. Hoppy pungent aroma with hops and pitch, some dark chocolate. Semi oily palate. Flavours of roasted malts and juniper. Pleasantly bitter end.
