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.

Alles sehr sanft und dezent. Daher kommt das Bier auch nicht so recht in Schwung. Im JOPEN Probierlokal zu Amsterdam vernascht (25cl/4,75).

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - APR 10, 2016
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.
