Backlog. Had this one some time ago, didn't like it, has a weird taste. I guess that's the spices. mviljamaa (238) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2018
Pours with a thin beige head, diminishes quite quickly. Color is brewed black tea. Aroma is malty and herbal, some licorice and aniseed., energy drink, cinnamon, cardamom. Palate is quite balanced, slightly syrupy. Taste is rich malty (not too fermented taste, about right) with licorice and aniseed body and fainter herbal notes. Slightly dry, crisp (carbonation) finish. No odd side tastes what so ever. Interesting and tasty strong ale type beer. tgrtnr (460) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 1, 2018
