appearance: cloudy medium dark brown, short tan head quickly fading; no lacing. aroma: caramel, toffee, star anise, brown sugar, herb garden, root beer, vanilla. taste: tastes like a beery root/birch beer blended with cola, vanilla, and toffee. finish: herbal sweetness lasts, along with a bit of caramel and toffee. notes: No hops to this at all, which is of course fine. Tasty and unique. Palate is pretty full. Felt like I was drinking some medicine sold out of the back of a covered wagon in 1800s Wyoming. And I enjoyed the experience. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

15cl glass at Bierfestival Groningen. bottle was from 2000. bartender poured me the bottom of the bottle which was flat and filled the glass up with a unopened bottle. therefore hte beer had a lot of sediment floating around. has a hazy dark brown colour with no head. aroma of raisins, malts, yeasty, slight dark dried fruits. taste was medium sweet, medium bitter with a slight wine-like sourness. notes of raisins, plums, (red) wine, caramel, malts. watery texture, medium bodied with flat carbonation.

Pours dark with low carbonation. Taste is grassy and herbal with almost no hoppy bitterness, but instead sweet malty flavors take overhand.

PapaVillum (850) - Valby, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2016
Mahognifarvet Traditional/Herbal Ale med offwhite skumtop på 3-4 cm, som svinder til landskaber og senere kant og overflade. Rolig, ufiltreret og med gærrester fra eftergæringen. Dejlig krydret, næsten medicinsk, aroma af bl.a. timian og koriander. Dejlig blød mundfølelse leder vejen til en lækker bittersød smag præget af krydderier og noter af hostesaft. Middel sødme og let til middel bitterhed. Mellem til rund fyldig krop og en karbonering på et nyk under middel, som giver førnævnte bløde mundfølelse. Konsistensen er olieret, næsten cremet. Afslutningen er bittersød og tør. Overall: Et dejligt eksemplar i genren Herbal Ale med rigtig god mundfølelse. 330 ml, flaske, 8.5 % ABV, BB: 18/12/16, købt i Kvickly Allerød. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SinH4 (2546) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2016
Bottle from Biervana. Amber color with creamy tan head. Aroma is honey, anise, caramel, raisins, chocolate, also blackcurrant. Taste is spicy anise and rosemary, spruce, toffee, chocolate, blackcurrant, and a herbal-earthy bittersweet finish. Low carbonation, full-bodied. A fine traditional brew!

Bottle @ Buitenlust. Looks quite dark with a small foamy head and consistent overall. Smells a bit burned and hoppy and not too strong. Taste gives you more of that expectation with a hint of sweetness, reminds a bit of caramel. Overall, a solid beer I would happily drink again.
