Koelschtrinker (12439) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
Starker Honig Antrunk, der durch die erkennbaren Gewürze eher noch verstärkt wird. Rund süffig, langer Nachgeschmack, in dem der Honig erheblich länger als die Gewürze hält. Gut! 9/12/12/12/9/12

yngwie (15190) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It pours oily, with a clear, golden body. The aroma is very spiced and perfumed, as well as with some honey. The flavor is pretty much the same, too perfumed and spiced, although with a nice honey sweetness. Full-bodied and warming, oily on the palate. Well, it’s sort of nice, in a way, but the perfume aroma and flavor is too much for me. 131122
