3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 8.5%. 2008 version, drunk in 2012. Sweet roasted malt aroma, a little soy and a yeasty, citric note. Unclear dark brown colour, red shine. Small stable brown head. The flavour is quite sweet to begin with, also a little citric and yeasty. Tastes like a funky, yeasty quad. OK citric, malty and yeasty finish. The aniseed and orange peel are subdued, but I somehow still feel they add to the overall flavour.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A bottle from 2009 (bb 1.1.2014)
Intense dry fruity nose has apricots, sweet orange, honey, raisins, coriander, minerals, sweet herbal notes, creamy/buttery candy notes and a hint of booze. Somehow reminds me of sweet dessert wines. Finishes lightly almondy and dryfruity. Medium body hides alcohol completely. Velvety soft texture. A true dessert beer. Loved it!

Clear dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, caramel and loads of liquorice from the excessive use of anise. Flavor is rather sweet. The sweet and spicy finish holds some alcohol as well. Doesn’t go well with food. 311009
