3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It pours an unclear, orangey-golden body under a dense, finger-thick off-white to beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is fruity with a spiced peppery note, followed by a touch of solvent or similar, still a really pleasant aroma. The flavor is peppery with some caramel and cellar hints, bog myrtle maybe, and sugary fruits and licorice. It’s medium to full bodied with some alcohol warmth. Lasting finish. A strange but nice beer I would like to have again in order to dig deeper into. 110513

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl, 7.0% abv) Cloudy, amber colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Quite fruity and herbal hoppy aroma combined with caramel-malt and mildly spicy notes. Moderately sweet and bitter flavour, medium bodied at most with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty base with a present fruity, even slightly piney hops profile; a bit slim and delicately caramelly finish but again with a pleasantly hoppy touch. Nice one. 17.VI.11

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL. Poured a hazy tea amber with a healthy, sheen, off-white head. Big lace. Nose is rye, spices, earth, grain and off-character. Cinnamon apples come forth as it opens up but there is still something a little odd (herbal, anise, old licorice). Taste is very dirty and earthy almost like potting soil. Very sticky sweet body with too much toffee and brittle. Sugary and licorice dominant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Angenehm würziger Geruch. In Maßen hopfiger Antrunk, etwas hefig, langweilig. Das Bier wird hefiger bleibt aber auf langweilig milden Level.
