3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled, BBE 02/2012) Murky dark brown with a medium, firm and lacy head. Sourish-caramely maltiness and spicy-meaty feel in the nose, with a touch of oak. Flavor is like strongly spiced quadrupel, slightly thin when cold, but without alcohol presence. Anise is immediately present, but caraway comes with warming. Spiciness is slightly harsh and stingy, but if there was too much sweetness when fresh, it has settled by now. Medium+ body, slightly fizzy CO2. The most beery one of Zonderik/X series, but also the least interesting.
