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.

Bottle from Bier Tempel, Brussels
Hazy brown color; large head with short retention. The aroma is mild, with malt, caramel, yeast, vegetables. The body is thinner than expected; there is caramel flavor, a touch of chocolate, but also some liquorice, vegetables, spices (anise and cinnamon), herbs; ordinary bitterness, and some alcohol warmth in the end. Nothing special.

Bottle, bought @ EG.
Muddy brown with a slight red hue. Medium, staying, frothy, yellowish head. Heavy aroma, lots of fresh prunes, liquorice root, coriander, a touch of chocolate and vanilla. Very fresh. Highish carbonation, good dry mouthfeel with some underlying creaminess. Flavour is herbal, some liqourice again, prunes, figs. Light warming and softly vinious. Coriander, vanilla again, chocolate. Very different from other brunes, but really good for it.
