[Tasting glass draft @ Billie’s Bier Kafetaria] Dark brown amber, small tanned head. Nose is cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, Christmas cake, brown sugar, more spices, pumpkin spices, candy, sugar, more cloves, caramel sweet, amazing if you are really into these spices. Taste is extremely massive on cloves followed by nutmeg, Christmas cake, pumpkin spices, sugar, caramel, toffee, more cloves, cinnamon, sugar, candy, brown sugar, very faintly metallic. Amazing, reminiscent of a pumpkin spices beer in a way with the massive spices. Body is a bit too thin & fizzy keeping it from greatness for me. For sure a fan of this one. I may need the BA version of this one.

Bottle. Teku. Deep amber/almost reddish with small, lightly reddish head. Poor head retention and lacing. Aroma is really nice, christmas with lots of cinnamon. First of all dark fruits, along with nutmeg, nicely balanced with caramel and brown sugar notes. Very nice spices with domination of cinnamon and some ginger, also some chewing gum-like aromas. The taste is semi-dry, not so perfume as you would expect from the nose, rather constant the the degustation. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, finish is spicy and semi-dry, the palate is not the best side of this beer. In general this is Christmas beers, what I like here the most is very good balance between all the flavors and aromas. There is a lot of cinnamon, which I’m really fond of. Highly drinkable with well ABV hidden.

Barwa miedziana, piwo klarowne - pierwsze piwo naprawdę fajnie wyglądające. Aromat to świąteczna bomba! Z jednej strony bardzo typowy: piernik, goździki, gałka muszkatołowa; a z drugiej bardzo intensywny, słodki i przyjemny. W smaku piwo jest bardzo ułożone i raczej wytrawne. Pełne piernika i przypraw, wspaniale komponują się tutaj cynamon, imbir, goździki i gałka muszkatołowa - tworząc spójną harmonię. W tle nuty suszonych owoców.

W aromacie jak i w smaku to święta w płynie. Piernik, przyprawy używane do piernika...Gałka, imbir, goździk! Intensywnie, nie za słodko, idealnie zbalansowane. Super, po prostu super!

TET (3033) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2016
A beautiful, dark red beer, a head is quite small and beige. Aroma has huge amount of spices, cinnamon, ginger, pomerans, cardemum, also berries of red currants and richness of red wine. All these complex aromas are nicely balanced and pleasant. Taste has strong spicyness, but not so dominantly as in the aroma. Cinnamon, cardemum, ginger, fruitness, some cherries and roastiness. Surprisingly light, only medium bodied. Balanced even the huge amount of spices, the nice beer also in the middle of Summer as today.

Deep dark amber coloured body with a nice thick, four centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of spices, herbs, grain, alcohol, malt and a lot of deep pitted fruits. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong malty flavours at first with bunches of spices showing allspice, coriander seed, nutmeg, canella and even some cloves. Aftertaste shows a robust complexity with malt, brown sugars, some grain, yeast, pit fruits and toffee all around - very nice. Overall, a very good complex spice-based beer with a lot of malt, alcohol and sweetness around! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 27-May-2016 for US$9,99 sampled at my hotel in Lower Manhattan on 27-May-2016 a few minutes later.
