Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Pours black color, thick brown head. Aroma is heavily spiced, ’julmust’ , anise, hops, yeast. Some funkiness lures behind. Flavor has toasted bread, hops, aniseed, licorice, caramel. Very dry , hoppy finish. Complex brew, really nice. I find more layers as the beer gets warmer. The aroma is very close to Anchor - our special ale. jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Pours opaque dark brown with big head and good lacing. Aroma is herbal from spices and floral from hops. Taste is the same with moderate bitterness with a little herbal astringency. Moderately drinkable but wouldn't buy again.

Pours nice dark brown with off white head. Smell is floral with spices like nutmeg and maybe oregano or pepper. Taste is pine hops, a bit grassy and bitter. Not unpleasant but can't taste the spices. Good lacing and medium mouthfeel. Okay.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Big, creamy Belgian head on this Cali-Belge combo. Very noticeable fruity, floral aroma with a sprinkling of yeast and coffee. The flavor is unexpectedly sharp, dry, and tart. There are some burnt grains, and a little sourness and acidity. Not a super successful collaboration. blutt59 (6562) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
bottle, dark brown with big tan foam, aroma and flavor of black licorice, with herbal weak spritzy finish, not good

Spicy spiced aroma- leaps out of the glass. Pours beaut- dark as pitch with big tan foam. Taste is dark- chargrilled vegies, with mint- lots of herbs inc some aniseed and cough syrup on the finish. I quite like it!
