Nice beer with a dark brown/Amber color. Strong creamy taste with a little bitterness after. One of my favorites of the Jopen beers bhensonb (15358) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle from Perry’s in Livermore. BBE 03/05/09 (It was in the cold box). Pours a clear dark garnet with a slight foamy beige head. Interesting aromas like berries and herbs. Medium body with mild carbonation. It’s sweetish, and a bit medicinal - must be the herbs. Berries kind of float somewhere. Goes astringent towards the finish. Something like chocolate pops out. Interesting stuff. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2010

From the Bierkoning. Poured a ruddy cola colored body with an apparently similar density to cola as well. The aroma was an enticing hodgepodge of spices was actually well balanced by sweet maltiness that had a doughy edge reminiscent of some trappist beers I’ve had. The flavor was pleasant and mellow. The overall effect of the herbs, the carbonation, and the not slight alcohol content produced a very cola like stimuli upon the palate. The flavor had subtle hints of licorice, raisin, bubblegum, candied ginger, fresh dough, and caramel malt. The alcohol also complemented the flavor in that it wasn’t boozy or dominant over any of the other flavors. Quite nice. Archibaldo de la Cruz (1120) - FINLAND - APR 5, 2010
