0,5l bottle,2014. Dark brown,caramel head. Of all my ratings so far,the most distinct beer. Heavy scent of spice. Sage, chestnut, like a spicy schnapps. Good balance between sweet and sour, albeit a bit on the sour side. Lacks bitterness. Overpowering spicy perfume. Very interesting,but not the most friendly taste. I admire this one’s courage.

Smakt hjemme i ølglass. Lukter lakris, smaker mye lakris. Litt for mye. Veldig god i munnen. Passer til riskrem og karamellpudding.

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of spice, sage, roasty, bready malts with a touch of dark fruits. Mouthfeel is slick and amazing with plenty of flavor. There is so much here, it’s almost hard to put your fingers on, but i get spices, nutmeg, cloves, nuts, sage, dark malts, dark fruits, and ginger. It’s amazing in every way. This is an outstanding beer.
