yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2008
ZBF2008: From tap. Pours dark brown with a dense/creamy tan head. Aroma is spiced, annis seed and something else. Flavour is a bit herbal, spiced and with a solid annis seed flavour, very distinct/dominant. Light roasted malt flavour. Ends much the same way. Well brewed, but too spiced for my liking.

TBone (12333) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2008
Bottled (BB 02/2009)
Murky nut brown color, small beige head. Strong anise-licorice nose (Het Anker anyone?). Medium, or even full-bodied, kind of syrupy palate. Anise, licorice, cardboardish yeast, kandi sugar. Sticky hops in the finish. Obvious copy of Gouden Carolus Christmas, yeast(?) just makes this a bit harsh.
