kappldav123 (5380) - GERMANY - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well. Deep yellow, modest turbid. Strong-spicy aroma. Starts not as stong as exspected, very spicy, notes of cinnamon, hoppy-grasy background. Also some lemon notes. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable for its strength. Good beer!

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 18, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a large white head with good lace over a hazy golden body. Aroma of brandy, alcohol, grapes, caramel and an odd "smoothness"...something I cannot describe. Taste is alcohol, earthy, very dry, chalky, vanilla, pear, dried apricot, stone fruit. Very attenuated with creamy carbonation.
