3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Murky amber with a small, firm and lacy head. Meaty and peppery-spicy nose with herbs, fruit and ginger. Also the flavor is very meaty-spicy, herby, and vegetably (in a good way). Quite full body, soft CO2. An interesting "meal-in-a-bottle", but I’m not sure I’d order another one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Cloudy, orange-golden colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly sugary (cara-)malty aroma with hints of marzipan, mildly citric fruity notes and a touch of human sweat (cumin ?). Moderately sweet flavour, almost full body feel with a rather calm carbonation. Slightly buttery (cara-)malty taste with spicy hints and very subtle fruity notes; slightly alcoholic and hop bitter finish, again with spicy/sweaty notes. Interesting but not for everyday use. 27.III.12

Pours hazy orange with a giant, creamy, white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, light sulphur, nuts, bog myrtle, cumin, honey, light salty. Very special aroma. Medium carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is mild, doughy malts, soft caramel, light herbal dryness again with cumin dominating. Honey presence as well. Vinious and warming. Interesting. Could be very lovely with Chili Con Carne.
