TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 19, 2009
Bottled (CK, BBE 2009).
Dark brown color, good beige head. Spicey aroma with ginger, black pepper and rubber, maybe a bit ashy. Medium-bodied. Caramel malty, spicey, a bit chocolaty flavor. Spices are odd and exotic, black pepper is the closest guess. Nutty and ashy too. Not my cup of tea. NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2010
@ Winterbierfestival PRZH 2010, Gouda. Amber colored brew. Sweet aroma. Flavor is sweet, apricots, fruits, syrupy. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
Bottle. Sweet, with hints of raisin, and touches of licorice Some slight roast in the finish helps it along a little bit, but it fades a bit towards the finish. A bit too sweet aswell. Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 1, 2008
Muddy brown beer with a small off-white head. Roast aroma with toffee and chocolate. Sweet chocolate and roast malt flavour. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle at 17th PINT winterbier festival, Gouda. Pours clear orange to brown. Aroma of licorice, alcohol and fruits. Flavor is quite watery, bittersweet andof licorice and spices. Quite ok, but not very interesting.

Dark clear brown ale with a sweet raisiny aroma and light chocolate notes. Rather flat sweet chocolate with light alcohol finish. May 1,2005 at 2nd KBC Festival, Den Bosch, NL. leaparsons (10504) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown with a a beige head. Aromas are chocolate and earthy, peaty coffee with vegetable and plastic. Flavours are sweet and spicy with thick chocolate on the palate. Lightly metallic with light alcohol burn. A bit thin in my opinion. madmitch76 (24511) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2011
