bierkoning (10555) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2008
Bottle @ home. Murky brown color. Cardemom, malt and caramel in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with caramel, cardemom and ginger. Alcoholic but drinkable.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Bottle (from Cracked Kettle). Deep reddish brown colour with huge beige foamy head. Aroma is at first very much licorice, then turns into spices and a lot of citrus fruits. Flavour is quite much licorice along with spices. Not that much fruityness in the flavour. Some mildly burning alcohol in the aftertaste, otherwise alcohol is very well hidden. Superb.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 30, 2008
Bottle@Home. Jasmin and raisin in the aroma. Reddish brown color, firm beige head, good lace. Sweet, vanilla, licorice, jasmin, light bitter. Medium body, silky, little warming. Flavorful, interesting because it’s quite out of the ordinary.

FatPhil (9594) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
330ml bottle 8.5% (One Pint, Helsinki, Belgian Beers Weeks 2007). Apple and honey nose, full malty taste. Slightly alcoholic, but not intrusively so.

TBone (12991) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2007
Bottled, alc. 8.5% @One Pint Pub
Dark brown, a bit reddish color, small steady tan head. Spicey - strong clove nose. Very carbonated mouthfeel, licorice dominates the flavor. A bit spicey (clove), but not as much in the aroma. Slightly sticky mouthfeel.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2005
Yellow dense head over dark, opaque-brown beer. Little sourish nose with drop (liquorice-gum) nose, and a bit sweet pigfat ("zoete lies"). Again sourish lactic taste on top of rather sweet dark malts. And a distinct lavender flavour. Well bodied, sticky. Not bad, nice taste. No doubt some small lactic "infection", but not in any way unpleasant.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2004
Brown coloured. Loads of sediment in the bottom of the 75cL bottle. Lovely aroma of spices. I find cinnamon, cardamom, clove, coriander and some orange peel. The flavour is also spicy with herbal notes and herbal bitterness in the finish. Complex and pleasant.
