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.

Arayaga2 (2101) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Reddish chestnut with a cherry sherry aroma that translates into the sweet cola taste. Not bitter at all, but spicy like a pumpkin ale with minerality in the aftertaste.
