thanatosti (1618) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 30 cl. bottle. Colour is a cloudy reddish brown whith a thin off-white head. Most prominent in the aroma as well as the taste is liquorice, I think because of the use of gruit insteas of hops. There is also some roasted malts and some caramel in the taste. Overall a nice non-standard beer.

(draught 0,3l) Some spicy/herbs aroma. Red-brown color. Medium head. Ligth sweet, some spicy/herbs taste and aftertaste. Alcohol can be recognized, but is not annoying.

Erasmus_ro (2808) - Alabama, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle. Translucent deep-reddish brown with a large, yellowish-brown head that diminishes quickly, but doesnt disappear. Aroma is herbal, medicinal, minty, tones of syrupy malts. Taste begins as herbal minty changing into sweet, syrupy, bready malts with a malty, herbal, medicinal finish with anise. Aftertaste is slightly malty, herbal, somewhat anisey. Palate is rather sticky, quite carbonated, medium.

borisz (415) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2011
Nice full and tasty brew. Dried fruits, caramel and a bit yeasty beer, more like an abt beer then a traditional ale. Fruity, malty and full long finish. Very nice.

Grima (2394) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2011
Dark reddish-brown color with long-lasting crown. The smell is grainy malty, fruity and slightly alcoholic. Starts with fruits and lots of malt aromas. The middle part is alcoholic-warming, with strong malt body and some hints of plum fruits and caramel. The finish is very intense malty sweet, alcoholic.

Martinus (4586) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2011
Reddish brown beer, slight off-white head, quickly deminishing. Aroma of candy sugar, caramel, some thyme, slight malts. Pronounced alcohol. Flavour sweet, caramel, malts, slightly cloying mouthfeel. Caramel, liquorice (drop). No hops (not surprisingly) but the gruut adds a nice heral touch. Quite nice.

UPDATED: JUN 2, 2012 Bottle at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Nice dark brown color with a dark red glow coming through. Dislike the smell, something herbal maybe? Taste is decent again and the mouthfeel is very nice.
