Bottle. Hazy amber color with a medium thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of oak, pepper, vanilla and grain. Sweet taste with some sourness. Medium body. Long sweet finish. Stuu666 (15056) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 20, 2015

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours light brown, smells like tomato soup. Tastes a bit like soup too, bit thin, light bitterness. rzymol (119) - - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, nearly 2 y.o. Pours tea with orange. Thin head that turns into some nice lacing. Aroma is sour, a bit like the aroma of Lief and Leed- not sure if this was intended, not disturbing at all but quite unexpected. No herbs, vanilla and spices in the aroma is a quite of dissapointment. Taste is very malty, caramel, sweety with caraway/herbal notes and spicy and softly sour finish. Cannot feel any vanilla. The aftertaste build of spicy feeling. Alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable and quite drinkable. Good but not ground-breaking stuff. A regular good job from De Molen.

Bottle, nice color,smells of spices and sweet phenolic, estery taste and confusing spice flavour, very unbalanced flavour , to much og all and I just did not like this one.. SinH4 (6393) - Garching b. MÃ¼nchen, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2014
Red color with small head. Aroma is very much vanilla and spices, cardamom. A bit of the caraway probably as well. Dark bread in the aroma. Taste is very spicy from the beginning. Towards the end, vanilla and sweetness. A bit confusing, I don’t know why. Too much vanilla probably...

Flaske delt på RBHD-samling på Tau okt-14: rødgylden med kort, storboblet skum. Mye aroma! Kardemomme, karve, og ikke minst vanilje. En (tindbær)aktig syrlighet utfyller krydderdrakten, og det hele går opp i en interessant, lett sprudlende barleywine-aktig nytelse. Fruktige toner fyller ut helheten. abemorsten (3683) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
0,5 l bottle at RBHD-gathering, Tau, Oct-2014. Clear orange body with a light brown film. Vanilla and caraway on the nose along with malty honeyish notes. Sweet, light acidic berries similar to sea buckthorn. Full bodied and alco warmth. Syrupy texture. Sigmund (7962) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Cloudy orange colour, low head. Strong spicy aroma, the caraway and vanilla comes through, probably also the cardamom. Also notes of molasses and alcohol. Spicy flavour, but also some sweetish fruity notes. Kind of interesting flavour. Holmen2 (4134) - NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Shared bottle at RB/HD gathering at Tau 18.10.14. Unclear amber. Small off-white head. Orange marelade, orange peel, caraway, vanilla and vegetables in aroma and taste. Too much herbs and spices for me. jfb (6830) - GERMANY - SEP 24, 2014
