Bottle. Strong smell of syrup, a little bit coffee. The medium large head is brown and has a long duration. The body is nearly black. The taste has a normal long duration and is a little bit bitter and malty. The texture is light oily, quite dry and creamy with normal carbonation and a medium body. The finish is light alcoholic. A nice beer.

Sweet dark berries in the aroma, malty too. Massively malty taste, very rich and full, parts are grainy and nutty. Some malt loaf even. No signs of booze. Very nice go-to beer - should come in bigger bottles ;-).

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Poured a really nice deep ruby color with a very thin white head. Aroma was not overwhelming. A bit of malt with just a touch of herbal undertones. Hard to pick up. Flavor was nice, if a bit thin. A Lot of a malt characteristics, but nothing that overwhelmed the beer. The herb character was not nearly as strong as what I was expecting. This was a good beer.

Dark red brown colour with thin lacy head. Spicy aroma. The gagel/gale gives a clean almost menthol scent. Flavour initially dominated by the slightly sour, herby feel. A little maltiness is also present. High alcohol content means the beer ends with a warming feeling.

Darker brown coloured beer with rather little carbonation and a small off-white head. Some yeast particles. Sweet banana fruity aroma with some malty touches. Full palate. Finish is bitter, herby malty with a light alcoholic touch. Medium one.

Bottle. Lightish black beer with a fruity lightly spiced and spritzy aroma. The flavour is warming, spiced, and bitter fruity. Overall a nice gently spiced drink.

marcus (8593) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
This dark brown ale poured with a thin off-white head with a light herbal aroma. It has a very interesting flavor due to the use of gruit (assorted herbs) rather than hops. It is a sweet and malty beer, but the flavor is somewhat flat with some distinctive herbal notes including anise. This is a tasty brew that is worth trying, if only for its uniqueness.

Lubiere (12270) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2008
A light brown ale with a nice lacing off white head. In aroma, nice cinnamon hearts, and vinous notes. In mouth, complex black licorice and aniseed, burned caramel, and warming alcohol. Rich bodied ale. Very nice. On tap at Arendnest, Nov. 2006.
