On tap @ Old Chicago mini tour. I am not normally a fan of spiced beer, but this one was surprisingly good. The herbal undertones made me think of Jagermeister. junon (430) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Definitely an Earthy beer. Spices and herbs. A bit of candy. Reminds me of my grandmothers secret remedies. Its almost like an alcoholic cola. Such an odd style. vmilaxer29 (427) - Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Has a nice spicy aroma after you pour it, but the taste doesn’t seem to match the smell. The beer could definitely use a higher alcohol content and more distinctive flavor. Not a bad winter ale. Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is malty and spicy. Pours almost black with a small beige head. Taste is smokey and has some roasted malts. Palate is a bit oily. Overall a decent beer, not very tasteful though. madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 21, 2006
bottle. Pours brown with a red hue when held up to the light. Thick light brown head. Fruit, leather, some toffee and spices in the aroma. Taste of toffee and some fruit, dry and finishes with some tobacco. Not bad for a holiday brew.

Dark brownish poor white white head. Aroma is sweet, spicy, bready all at once. Sweet, gingerbread taste with hints of chocolate and roasted malts. Nice finish. I really enjoyed this one. Good holiday beer. RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
) This beer introduces itself with an aroma consisting of ginger, clove, cinnamon, fruit, and all-spice. It is black in color with a good sized caramel head that dissolves leaving a good amount of lacing on the sides of the glass. This moderately thick beer enters and flows through the mouth smoothly. It enters with a mild bitter taste and turns more bitter as a mixture of spices (ginger and clove being the strongest) penetrate the taste buds. This beer leaves the mouth with a sour/bitter ginger taste lingering. cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2009
bottle (asheft) 2007 - dark brown beer with a thick beige head. Spicy aroma like cinnamon. Flavour has a lot of fruits and spices. TimsRatings (421) - - NOV 30, 2013
From 1.5 l bottle.
Pours a clear caramel coot with lots of light brown head. Mild aroma of malts. Fruity and malty with nutmeg aftertaste.
I can see drinking this in front of a fire on a cold winter night.

Hazy dark brown body, good tan head. Smells like licorice, flowers, caramel, yeast. On the palate, it shows a strong toffee and roasted malt character. Smooth and medium-bodied, with loads of subtle spicy notes coming through (orange peels, nutmeg, pine). Long slightly tarty finish. Complex, yet quite drinkable.
