UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Great dark color with greeeeat head. Cinnamon, orange licorice taste - but its too orange for my taste. (re-rated 2012) Now - no orange, but more traditionally raisin flavor.

Nice spicy aroma and deep red, brown colour. Flavor is fine too, very dark malts give that christmas feeling :) A bit sweet too, hints of caramel. Nice one.

hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle, best before 9/16/07. Aroma of pine, slightly hoppy with some roasty dark malt including coffee and caramel. Dark, dark brown with a tall and frothy off-white head and great lacing. Caramel flavor, very malt forward with lots of oxidation flavors and some cardemom and coffee. Oxidation-cardboard just a little to much for me. Medium body with a metallic, mineral-like finish.

badgerben (5325) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Dark brown color with a thin head. Aroma struck me as corriander; odd for the style. Basic malt taste with yet more corriander. Some fruit, but overwhelmed from the spice. Out of balance.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2005
On tap at Monks. Poured dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma was sweet oranges and spices. Flavors were dark fruit, carmel, and some mild licorice with a sweet orange citrus finish. Very tasty and alcohol well-masked.
