Deep copper with a light head and a touch of lacing. Bittering hops in the nose with a large hop profile. Spicy with caramel malts. Brown sugar comes around with the heat of the alcohol rearing up.

Pours an oily, muddy orange with a small, quickly dissipating white head.
Faint caramel malt aroma.
the flavor is very fruity and quite sweet. Alcohol is very present.
Needs some balance.

Bottle at Akkurat, September 2013.
Dark reddish with a lot of sediments. Sweet aroma and taste of apples, ginger, toffee, malt, spices and some oak. Also notes of alcohol. Drinkable but a little too much in the long run.

Alkoholisch strenger Geruch. Würziger Antrunk der jedoch bald abflacht.Leicht süßlich-alkoholisch, etwas im Rachen brennend.Nicht sehr aromatisch, likörartig, etwas unausgewogen, im Abgang harmonischer, stark, hefig, ok. Sehr ruppig! Vielen Dank an DerDoppelbock für das Bier!

2005 bottle. A ton of ginger in the nose. A weird clear orangy color. smells a ton of ginger and tastes like a bad gin drink. Just weird to me but I like how different it tries to be.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber body with an off white head. Very spicy, herbal, ginger, some tyme, and earth. Modest warming with plenty of honey and pine notes. A decent malt bill but heavily spiced and the finish is just very hot. A nice strong ale.

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.

22oz bottle via trade. Pours a swamp water brown with a thin off white ring. Lots of spice with some candied cherries and herbs on the nose, some faint oxidation in there as well.
