3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[At RBSG 2005] An orange beer with no head. The aroma is very alcholic combined with notes of ginger and spices - especially cinnamon - a very complex aroma. The flavor is fruity with lots of peaches and ginger, but also lots of alcohol - so much, that it burn the throat. The end is alcohol dry. Too alcoholic to really be me.

(Bottle 65 cl) Clear amber golden, basically no head. Berry like aroma - juniper? Very full-bodied with some sweetish caramel. Some odd - but pleasant - herbal accents. Quite spicy. Slightly sweet finish. Interesting indeed. 220406

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled at Akkurat, Stockholm (2005 vintage), thanks fiulijn! Cloudy copper colour, almost no head. Aroma of ginger, coffee and cardamom. Sweet and fruity. Quite sticky with honey and ginger as dominat features, backed up by evere amounts of alcohol. Seriously one-dimensional for such a potent beer. Like Becherovka, but less appetizing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Akkurat, Stockholm, vintage 2005, 3 years old
Hazy red color; thin head (if poured normally, and too much carbonation in the beer) or big creamy head with medium persistance (if poured from high, and then the beer is correctly carbonated). The aroma is a bit soapy, herbal (rosemary? heater? mild…) and shows alcohol. Good body strength, quite sweet, maybe with too much carbonation, malt and sweet caramel flavor, correct bitterness (at least, it doesn’t surpass the sweetness). The alcohol can be perceived in the final, but at 13% I can’t say that it’s too offensive. I don’t fancy too much herbal flavors (it could have been an 8-5-8-4-16), and in the final it pays a bit for it. Good but not exciting.

Bottle. Sweet pine aroma. Almost clear red copper colour. Small head. The flavour has a nice pepperiness. Quite spicy and herbal with a hint of added vitamins.

29th June 2008. Brewed with honey and spices. The ingredients are not sublte! Sweet and aromatic with strong ginger and honey. Spice in there as well but hard to identify as it’s well integrated. A distinctive tasty beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy brown colour. Very spicy nose. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, alcohol and caramel notes. A little bit cidery, which is unfortunate. Light fruity finish. Nice brew, on the whole. I don’t think I got anywhere near sorting it all out but I liked what I did get out of it.
