Bottle 25 cl.
Pours clear orange, with minimal white head. Hazy when you add the sediments, which I did halfway, to much success. Some malty caramel, and quite a lot of spice and ginger, to a slightly shy nose. Taste is moderate sweet, and medium long.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy honey brown with a limited cap floating on top like a sad island. What fudge is this wacked aroma?? Apple, big ginger, cough drops, kind of a caramel finish. This stink works for me but I can see getting sick of it. Taste is the same but booze and sweet. Medical aspects linger for a while. So much apple and ginger...... reminds me of Unibrou 2004 but with more spice. I do like this but I can see getting sick of it.

Bottle to tulip
Lots of spices, mace, nutmeg, clove, black pepper, ginger; along with some lavendar, banana, cabbage, and resin. It’s a cloudy amber with a creamy white head and some lacing. Taste is ginger and clove, prune, wood, grapefruit, and pine. There’s a lot going on here and it’s interesting, but I don’t know if impressive is the word...interesting is about as far as I’ll go with this one.

Great aroma, with christmassy spices, black pepper, some banana and other fruits. Oily texture, warming bitterness and lots of sweetness. The taste gets better the warmer the brew gets, but it never gets fantastic.

Wundervolle Erfahrung dieser Spice-Biere. Kaum zu beschreiben, was hier wirklich vonstatten ging. Zwischen Vanille und Frucht, ebenso Hopfen und Zitrus - süffig bis zum geht nicht mehr - und das bei 10 pro ! Wundervoll.

Bottle from trade with Meilby - many thanks, Kenni! The beer pours out in a nice dark deep brown colour with low head and smooth body. Wonderful aroma of spices, hops and roasted barley. Taste of mild but intense spices, herbs, hops, straw, nuts and barley. Wonderful and very smooth to drink with a deep character and nice body. Wonderful quaffable and enjoyable. Probably the best in this style I had up to now ever.
