Much better than the house ale. the spice covers the ill flavors from pasteurization. Good, but not world class.

A very dark, but clear brown color with a small beige head. Nice lacing. Sweet spicy scent, almost a soy sauce scent.
Sweet without being syrupy, floral hoppiness and spice follow. Very tasty, I’m happy to have found this one way over here!

Pours a dark brown with not much of a head. The aroma of this brew is wonderful sweet malts, spices and plenty more. Nicely balanced flavours of malt, raisins, spices and although it didn’t give much of a head it still had a nice soft carbonation to it. What gives this beer a high rating from me is the blended balance of the flavours. Very well crafted and tasty.

Dark brown in colour, with a beige foamy head that disappears rather quickly. Malty, fruity and spicy in the nose with hints of alcohol and old wood. Quite sweet and a bit sour, full bodied and a nice hoppy finish.

Poured brownish amber with not much of a tan head...smelled of corriander and new leather boots and I too got notes of lime...taste is full of spice and fruits...small notes of nuts and licorice...finish is a little cloying though...this might be a tad over rated...

I have a hard time describing this beer but I know one thing for sure: This is an excellent brew! Very complex and pleasant nose. Extremely malty and spicy flavour with notes of dark berries (black currants, bilberries). The finish is not particularly bitter but the beer is still nicely balanced. Excellent stuff!

Bottle. Sweet perfumy aroma with some hop notes. Dark brown colour, sparse head. Powerfully spicy and tea-like flavour. Quite bitter aftertaste.
