Draught? or poured from a bottle? at the Főzdefeszt, ENORMOUS thanks to lord_totenkopf for this pricey bugger. Murky brown body with an off white head. Strawberry jam nose, in a nice way, not cloying. Smooth, distinctly fruity taste, raspberry jam this time. Not bad at all, only some light alcohol. Avoids the lack of drinkability some of the others at that level possess. These two returned my faith in the brewery! bergstaden (3327) - Røros, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2014

Bottle as pictured in my Trade #2 with the mad Slovak. Deep brown with some light. Steady pillars of carbonation still yield little head. Spotty lacing. Fruit / earth nose. Moderate body with light syrup about edges. Oak, earth and light faint plums. Yeah, a nice brew. Well put together. Borresteijn (7595) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2012
1L Bottle at Sloshfest, traded with Cuso, cheers Imro! Slightly hazy amber-brown colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of thick sweet barley wine malts, some red fruits, caramel, alcohol, oak, hint of spice. Flavour is quite hot, alcohol, light spicy, sweet malts, hint of plastic, light spruce, juniper, phenols, bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied. Nice and tasty stuff, fun beer.

Bottle from Cuso - thank you a lot! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium-smooth body. Lovely nose of rum, roisins and plum wine. Taste of plums, malt, rum roisins, nuts and leaves. Very smooth finish. A very nice and tasty beer. Christos (5909) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
330 ml swing top bottle, many thanks to MisoW for this one. Poured into a snifter. ABV 10.5%
Very dark brown colour with red ruby shades when hold against the light. Two fingers of light beige head, good density. Average retention, light lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of dark fruits, lots of plums. Sweet and inviting.
Taste has a lot of wine qualities, lots of dark fruits on the taste too,red grapes, sweet with the alcohol perfectly hidden and thus dangerous.
Medium thin body, good carbonation with just a little bite on the tongue.
Overall a great beer, very drinkable, that should be listed as a quadruple, being Spice/Herb doesn’t do it justice. Geiserich (4659) - Linz, AUSTRIA - NOV 23, 2013
