3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
250 mL bottle courtesy of JB, served in a snifter next to #1001. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has huge notes of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and pepper, along with pale malts. The flavour is fairly dry with huge spicy notes carried through from the nose and some hops. The finish is long and spicy. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a huge spice bomb, complex and assertive. The nose is the highlight, but the body lacks balance. 2014-03-08

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours hazy and orange, with a tiny white head. The aromas are spices, and not much else. Cloves and cardamom are the most prominent, and there’s also a medicinal aroma. The taste is sweet, and the aftertaste is long. The mouthfeel is oily. #1000 is more like a novelty beer than anything else, the aromas are all over the place, as if someone knocked over a spice rack that fell into the brewing kettle.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head. Slightly hazy amber/golden body. Aroma is quite intense. Cloves, some malt presence, alcohol, yeast. A little too much of everything, seems a bit unbalanced in the mouth on the first taste, but it gets better as you get used to it. Mostly bitter at first, with a sweet finish. The flavor reminds me of christmas.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, orange beer with a weak and white head. The nose is aromatic, strongly spicy and weird. Bitter orange peel, ginger, coriander, also some sweetness and fruits, lemon. Taste is strongly spicy, at least cardamom and coriander, the overally more beer like than aroma, light malts and nice sweetness that is balancing the spicyness. Surprisingly easy to drink with medium bodied and low carbonation. Weird and personal beer where is the the spirit of east spicymarket and 1001 night. After adjust the spices the beer is quite interesting.
