yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a small, light beige head. Quite spiced aroma wtih roasted malts and some chocolate. The flavor has a little spiced and bitter touch, with dark sugar sweetness, caramel, some dried fruits, a little peppery touch and a good dash of chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation. Long roasted, spiced finish with some dried fruits and a little bitterness. A bit messy perhaps this one, but nice anyway. 130028

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with light, frothy, tan head, little lacing / Bright, sweet, smokey nose of, basically, the items in the description / Medium to full body, sweet but not cloying, well balanced although by no means hoppy, with hot spice bite / Again, the flavors are well set out in the description, with a heavy, hot, baking spice punch / Interesting and well done, although not something I would choose to drink. More like a digestif liqueur.

MrHangover (2146) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s stickiest floor tasting. Pours a darker brown beer with a small, off white head on top. Aroma is incredibly herbal. Nutmeg, cinnamon, laurel and allspice are detected, alongside other influences. Bit overkill on the spices. Flavor is very sweet and herbal again. Quite artificial and very unbalanced. Funny experiment though.

Bottle at Deano’s monthly tasting, September 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin broken tan head. The aroma is weak yeast. The flavour is weak bitter with a yeasty pumpkin palate. Pastrami?
