A fabolous smelling beer that HAS to be above 5 degrees C, otherwise it has a very powerful taste of alcohol.

bierkoning (11040) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2003
Big foamy head. Beautiful ruby dark color. Aroma has coffee and licorice. Malty flavor with lots of licorice and cinnamon. Strong alcohol burn. Long licorice and cinnamon finish. A very nice beer with just a bit too much herbs.

Appearance: clear dark red, fine beige head, streaks of drippy lace
Aroma: sweet fruity aroma with a lot of spicyness
Flavor: rich malt flavor, lots of fruity esters, touch of alcohol brings out the fruityness in the esters, lots of sweetness from beginning to end but never too sweet

Appearance: hazy dark burgendy, big creamy tan head
Aroma: aroma is drier allowing the spicyness to come out with the fruityness staying in the background
Flavor: flavor is drier as well, still dominated by the fruity character but the spicyness gets to share the limelight, no sign of alcohol
Overall: slight preference to the bottle version

madsberg (10618) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2003
On tap:. Dark red coloured with a decent medium lasting head. Lots of spiced in the aroma (seems like i""ve tasted coriander in all the beers tonight). Besides the coriander taste, this beer has a destinct taste of christmas. Theres cinnamon, green cardamom and cloves in the flavour. Has some sweetness in the palate.

FatPhil (10610) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 3, 2011
750ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
6 Gentle aroma, slight roast maltiness, a touch of apple.
4 Rich reddy brown, fizzy head settles to a ring and small patch in the middle, supported by a nucleation site in the stem.
6 Sweet apply almonds in the retronasals, some cherry too. Dry and papery marzipan/almond taste in the mouth. Quite a waft of alcohol too.
3 Crisp palate, lively carbonation. Finish a little fruity, but more herby and bitingly bitter. Tingle lasts quite a long time, but the long finish is like dry old stale hops.
12 Doesn’t cover the alcohol as well as many, but that’s because it’s not so laced with sugars as others.
