taster on tap @ Ei8ht Ball / Bellevue KY --- Clear amber brown with a rim head, no lace. Taste is roasted malt with smooth bittering that enters late in the palate. Both sides finish on equal footing, making for a balanced, clean, sessionable brew. Good stuff.

Tap at Crowbar, december 14th 2012. Dark brown body, thin offwhite head. Aroma of ginger, honey, flowery hops. Taste of peppers, caramel, milk chocolate and juniper. Interesting taste, nicely blended. A bit light bitterness, overshadowed by sweetness. Aftertaste of malt, juniper and a bit smoke. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Piwo z minimalna piana grubo pecherzykowa nie oblepiajaca szkla. Kolor brazowo miedziany, lekko metny. Zapach toffi, krowki i inne slodkosci. W smaku dochodzą cukierki werters orginal, trochę herbaty czarnej, ziolowej, tymianek, jagody także sa. Ciekawe posmaki drzewne, kora sosnowa w zapachu dość intensywna, trochę drewniane w smaku jakby było starzone w beczkach debowych. Sporo slodkosci i wyczuwalny niestetry alkohol, ale gorycz niewielka także była zwłaszcza w drugiej fazie po przelknieciu. Sahti trochę inaczej, ale fajne.

Clear red brown. Small, offwhite head. Aroma has malt, dried fruit, dark caramel and alcohol. Flavour is similar with clear notes of juniper berries and wood. Bitter finish with pleasant alcohol zing.

Et nydelig øl med en herlig krydret dyft av pepper og lakris. Lun og god smak med en ettersmak av lakris og malt. Et øl som ikke må være for kaldt. Godt øl som anbefales. Mørk nøttebrun farge nesten uten skum.

50 cl bottle graciously given to me by beastiefan2k. Pour is a cloudy brown ruby with nice settling building up a dense 3 inch tan head. Head falls slowly with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet fig, cocoa malt and lively juniper earthiness. Interesting nose, soft and fresh. Taste is more skewed to juniper and wood, with the grassy somewhat sweet fig behind that. There is a real nice straw element in the finish which finishes crisp and dry. As it warms, I get some of the cocoa from the nose in the taste. More like dry baking cocoa. Palate is medium bodied, with a fair amount of carbonation. There is a warming alcohol sensation to the finish which comes across a bit odd with the dryness. Overall an interesting complex beer, thanks for giving me this Eugene.
