4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber and quite clear with dense long lasting head. Somehow sweet aroma - some caramel, toffee, nutmeg, cinnamon, herbs. Taste is very soft and fondle in the beginning. Balanced with sweetness and bitterness, spices come slowly out. After is vice versa - quite a lot chilli, spices, herbs, very acute. Abv is very well hidden and carbonisation ideal. Very good one!

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really really really sweet, but well made, with some bitter vegetables in the aftertaste and lot of ripe red fruits, strawberry, spices, honey malt. No more than one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 bottle. Unclear, hazy, dark crimson color and a small beige head. Sweet and sour aroma of herbs, citruses, spices, and cheese. Taste is also warm and spicy; again cheese and herbs - very interesting though not exceptionally good. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is weird and seems like a chemically synthesized version of the taste. Overall an OK beer but nothing more.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Creamy sweet and spicy beer with a moderate carbonation. Foam is creamy, dense, and long lasting..
Very sweet and packed with flavours. Something piny spicy and sure a dash of liquorice. The dark candy sugar sweetness easily masking the prominent presence of hops.
This is a perfect winter warming beer and goes in soooo smooth !!
I can recommend highly !

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Dark copper color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Anise, gingerbread, sweet notes in aroma. Sweet, bready, nutty, sugar, clove in taste. Damn that’s sweet, but you got to hide alco somehow. And alcohol is hidden indeed. It is drinkable with small sips and not entirely failure.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Tolly, Tartu)
Initially a nice sweet caramel and gentle spiciness in the aroma. Later, becomes more spicy, and way more burnt. Even later, it becomes a bit sour. Looks nice, deep reddy brown persiostent tight beige head. Smooth palate, plenty of spices going up the back of the nose, clove, anis. Taste is sweet, caramel to toffee, christmas spices there too. Finish dry dusty bitter hop and dusty finish. A bit dirty and rough in places, but does have some hedonistically nice aspects. The spice is kept well restrained, which I appreciate. Alcohol not exactly hidden, more like dressed up in fancy dress.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,33L bottle, BB 2017. Pours copper with light tan head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is very sweet, caramel, malt, fruits, mint, a lot of spices. Flavor is similar to nose, plus some nutty flavors. Alcohol is noticeable, but not distracting. Overall: I generally love sweet beers, but this one is way too sweet and spicy to really enjoy it.
