Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Spicy and strong, almost like a liquor. Fruity, sweet, dark and dried fruit. A bit boozy, thick, heavy. Warming like a barley wine. Not sure I dig this combination, but it could just be me.

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, liquorice, spices, bread and roasted malts.
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, fruit and liquorice; ends slightly dry with spices, bread and roasted malts.
This beer tastes similar to a dunkler bock. Could have been more intense and could have more depth. It is extremely drinkable and has a good thick palate.

En balance mellem krydderier, rsitet malt og karamel smag. Specielt den krydret del af øllen er rigtig god

hazy brown colour, huge, dense off-white head; aroma of floral honey, walnut, dried plum and cherry, and some liqueur; taste is the same; great ale!

330ml bottle poured in Bierhuis de Klomp, Delft - Red ruby body, little in the way of head. Nose is very herb-forward, with subtle notes of fruit and dark chocolate. Liquorice also comes into the taste, a bit bitter, some sour raisin at the back end. Odd aftertaste, but very warming.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Cloudy dark brown color, deep tan head that drops quickly to a light cover, no lace. Taste is chewy, syrupy malt with medium carbonation, followed by herbs and light bittering in a long warm finish. Surprisingly, the initial swallow tasted a lot like a somewhat flat Coke. It’s okay, but a little goes a long way.

33cl bottles shared by impuritylaw@Bier ohne Stil-TAsting, Bierhandlung 2016-4, merci. - A balanced wealth of herbal, roasted and caramel flavours that soon become hard to trace in the palate-coating mix. Liquid diluted Ricola coughdrops, diluted with precision and spiced like a sauce reduction. Warming, with good-natured intent. Will revisit side-by-side with Gentse Gruut Inferno.

@bartlebier’s weird beer tasting Bierhandlung/Apr.16; the essence of a beautiful morning of a great day to come, begun with bowl of porridge with ripe bananas and cup of good strong coffee. Lovely.

At joepen Amsterdam, Pours clearish brown with white head. Smell and flavor are Belgian malt, spice, wood, port and plum wine. Finish has tons of complexity and layers. Tasty gruit but wouldn’t want a full glass of this. Small size was perfect
