50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 06.07.2013
Aroma has anise, licorice and herbal notes – feels like a fresh bottle of Gouden Carolus Christmas. Flavour is quite spicy with herbal notes, rosemary, some anise and hints of licorice. Aroma was nice but I find the rosemary in the flavour quite disturbing.

Botle 50 cl. Pours a clear orangey brown with a delicious and creamy off-white head leaving laces. Extreme aroma of star anise. Solid body, roasted malts, caramel and resin but pretty much everything is overpowered by the star anise. No bitterness. Overly spiced. 221009

Bottle. Dark brown with a medium off white head. The aroma is very spicy. Anise and fennel in front with lime or balm notes. Caramel on the sweet side. Lots of spices in the flavour with anise as the dominating part. Also ginger. Good caramel to back it up. If you like spicy beers this one is for you.

Bottled at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy ruby, no head. Arome of aniseed, other herbs and cherries. Sweet and fruity with medium-full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Grainy with slight herbal bitterness. Interesting stuff.

A little dark green bottle, 250ml, bought at the Illum store in central Copenhagen. Low, beige-tan coloured head. Minimal lacing. Deep, dark brown body. Earthy malts surrounded by spices on the nose. Ginger and mild pepper. Similar spicy taste with ginger to the fore added by anise and pepper. Herbal malty backbone. Spiced bittersweet tail. Fine bodied. Too much like a ginger beer, perhaps (Tromsø 05.01.2014).

300ml draught, guest ale at BrewPub, Copenhagen. Ruby-like content under a shinning surface. Malty to the nose supplied by spices. Pretty much the same to the taste buds...sweet malts offset by varieties of spices. Piny hops towards the finish. Rather sweet, but likable (Copenhagen, 25.03.2010).

Draught. Brown, off white head. Spices, caramel, herbs, anise, roasted malts and brown sugar in aroma. Flavour is rather filled with the same impressions with a herbal and spicy bitterness reminding me og af a traditional bitter (Underberg, Gl. Dansk). Probably has its own audience, and isn’t terrible, but it certainly is unique.

Draught at EsBF09. Distinct aniseed aroma. Hazy brown colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is sweet and spicy. There is plenty of aniseed and a little aroma hop which sneaks out after the massive malt and spice and attack.
