Corked bottle, kindly shared by gunnar. ABV is 10.5%. Very dark ruby colour, nearly black. Moderate beige head. Sweetish malty and spicy aroma, nice. Malty and spicy flavour too, medium sweet, moderate notes of chili, I can’t pinpoint the cinnamon and tamarind, but I’m sure they are there.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red colored beer.
Aromas of red fruit, strawberries and berries, yeast, chalk, leaves, wood, hint of peppery dust, cinnamon and meat, some malts, toast and liquorice (wood).
Flavours of spices like pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, dry, bitter, malt toast, berries, some strawberries and a hint of cherries, barley malts, nuts, leaves, some autumnal herbs and hay toast.
Aftertaste is toasty, malty, peppery, woody and porridge.
Low to medium carbo, creamy and lightly blown spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
One part of me really likes this beer with the pepper and such but the other half misses some interesting/complex body. Good beer but not what I expected.

375ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head.
