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.

PhillyCraft (5595) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2016
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

tmoreau (3626) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2016
750 ml. bottle from Chuck via the Rare Beer Club, poured to snifters showing a cloudy, copper color, with a presentable layer of off white head foam, and spots & ribbons of lacing. The nose was pure holiday spiced & herbal cake. Medium bodied, with decent effervescence, the taste was similar to the aroma, added a touch of treacle & sweetness, some alcohol warmth, but waned in comparative expression. Still a tasty treat to share.

ALIBALI (535) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 20, 2016
Alles sehr sanft und dezent. Daher kommt das Bier auch nicht so recht in Schwung. Im JOPEN Probierlokal zu Amsterdam vernascht (25cl/4,75).
