Drop wat de klok slaat. Zoethout oftwel glycerhizine in geur en smaak, onontkoombaar. Alles in balans, met tikkeltje venkel en vanille, en zelfs een hint naar rivella. Een score om heel af en toe van te genieten, van teveel drop wordt je ook misselijk. Kraag zakt snel in en carbonisatie had wat intenser gemogen.

Interesting beer: nothing like anything a tasted before, and a needed to read some ratings before i was able to describe this beer. A taste of red wine & cola & plums & chocolate & rye & cinnamon. A bit like liquors of jagermeister or Becherovka, but as a pleasant beer with the soft, creamy carbonization/texture of other Jopen beers.

KyotoLefty (7552) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 26, 2015
Tap at Jopenkerk. Spicy gruit nose, caramel, chocolate, some orange. Cloudy orange-brown, pretty low tan head, fine. Rich and malty, chocolate and caramel, Belgian yeast, spicy. Interesting, sweet, licorice, creamy and heavy. Bit too sweet with nothing really to cut it. Interesting, but 100 ml is enough.
