A good beer though it tends to feel rather clayey. Also has a rather strong feel of alcohol that doesn’t do it any favours. Otherwise a powerful taste of anis in particular. Pinball (12309) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008
aroma is nice, dark fruit.. looks great, nice yellow lasting head, flavor is dark fruit and spices, raisins (or something), i don’t like these spices, but it’s well done. also a bit "old beer" tones to the flavor., palate is quite good, overall a good beer that just doesn’t taste what i like, it’s too sweet, and too "rasin/dark fruit" for my taste. The alc. is totally hidden, you’d not expect it to be this strong. If i had liked the spices i would have rated it higher still madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2005
Draught @ Fynske Øldage: Reddish brown colour. Unclear. Off white dense head. Spiced, fruity and sweet aroma. Quite full. Flaovur of malt, prunes, plums and christmasspices like cloves and cinnamon. Alcohol is present and last into the end. Sweetness and spices is dominant in the end. Good one Meilby (11689) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2011
Bottle 500ml Batch #379 @ homefaroeviking (11211) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 17, 2006
Pours cloudy dark reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of sweet malts, licorice, dark fruits, spices and floral hops. Taste is medium sweet and a light bitter dry finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle. Hazy brownish colour. Bit creamy off-white long lasting head. Sweet aroma of some chocolate and fruits along with plenty of anise and coriander. The flavour has plenty of anise and coriander along with the malt.
The aftertaste is long lasting with a good touch of sweetness. Very Christmasish indeed, almost too much.

Shady reddish brown color, light brown head. Spicy and alcohol scent. Sweet malty and spicy taste with a milk chocolate aftertaste and some warming alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. A bit too alcoholic.
Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, quite stable creamy off-white head, sweet-dark-malt in the mineralic and metallic nose; robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; spicy, a bit musty, cellary finish with some alcoholic fruitiness in the aftertaste. No great pleasure............ KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2008
Hazy brown with meidum off white head. Sweet spicy aroma with oranges, and roasted malt. Same goes for the flavor with warming alcohol in the end. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2007
I had a terrible bottle of the 2004 version, it was infected and quite awful. But now in December 2006 I had gathered enough courage to buy it again, and I’m glad I did. It’s dark mahogany with a red hue and a creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, roasted malt, anise, licorice, coriander and the flavour has notes of roasted malt, light caramel sweetness, anise, coriander, licorice, alcohol and a nice bitterness. A nice surprise, and I’m glad to erase the memory of version 2004 from my mind... 1780
