Bottle from Mam and Dad's holiday, Newcastle. Hazy brown-copper coloured with a thin white head. It has a very rich plum, dried fruit and liquorice flavour with currants, and more smooth, warming, plum on the finish. Excellent! jamesie1857 (1985) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2017
On tap at Stadsbrouwhuis, Leiden - Hazy amber body, thick off-white topper. Nose is warming winter-spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, a little caramel there as well. Taste is as warming as promised, aniseed pokes its nose in, a little sweet, but really does give you a little gloed. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 22, 2012
Murky brown with light bubbly tan head. Not as big aroma as expected, but a good delicate sweetness with cookies, tea and anise. Pleasant fruity sweet, bit of burned bread in the middle. Develops well in the mouth. Bit sticky, nice. (At Pint Winterbier Festival 2012) goozen (4178) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2012
