Bottle. Pours a cloudy dark brown. A truly delicious and complex beer. Sweet fruit and nutty flavors. The alcohol adds a nice warming effect. Worthy of the high rating.

Schiuma beige, abbastanza fine. Colore marrone scuro con riflessi rosso rubino. Aroma intenso e abbastanza persistente: liquoroso, speziato, liquirizia, frutta secca, cioccolato. Gusto intenso e persistente dove si ritrovano i sentori speziati (pepe), di liquirizia, frutta candita sotto spirito, cioccolato, malto (onnipresente)....
