Aroma had some whiskey and berries, very strong in general. I found that lots of hops and malts had been used to make this beer. Color is brown and taste strong, that will last long time. This is truly a special beer.

Countbeer (6185) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle: Small light brown lacing. Dark amber color. Smell a lot of spices, some light liquorice, wheat, wood, hops. Very nice smell. Taste is very soft, lots of spices (pepper, clove), hints of dark sugar, hint of hops (light bitter), gruit. Slight bitter and spicy aftertaste. perfectly balanced with taste and carbonation.

imdownthepub (13228) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2010
Bottled, 330ml at Biercafe Doerak, Delft. Red amber to ruby with white head. A certain amount of complexity going on with this, initially quite a sharp herbiness, carnonation and slightly tinny then it smooths out with a darker maltiness and some roasty flavours. Pretty decent.

Nice beer with a dark brown/Amber color. Strong creamy taste with a little bitterness after. One of my favorites of the Jopen beers

Bottle from Perry’s in Livermore. BBE 03/05/09 (It was in the cold box). Pours a clear dark garnet with a slight foamy beige head. Interesting aromas like berries and herbs. Medium body with mild carbonation. It’s sweetish, and a bit medicinal - must be the herbs. Berries kind of float somewhere. Goes astringent towards the finish. Something like chocolate pops out. Interesting stuff.

Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby red color with a thick creamy off white head, leaving quite some lacing. Aroma is very spicy, with clove and juniper. Flavor is sweet spicy with a nice spicy and slightly bitter finish. Creamy texture and above average carbonation. Very smooth and drinkable.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
From the Bierkoning. Poured a ruddy cola colored body with an apparently similar density to cola as well. The aroma was an enticing hodgepodge of spices was actually well balanced by sweet maltiness that had a doughy edge reminiscent of some trappist beers I’ve had. The flavor was pleasant and mellow. The overall effect of the herbs, the carbonation, and the not slight alcohol content produced a very cola like stimuli upon the palate. The flavor had subtle hints of licorice, raisin, bubblegum, candied ginger, fresh dough, and caramel malt. The alcohol also complemented the flavor in that it wasn’t boozy or dominant over any of the other flavors. Quite nice.
