Compleja y espectacular en nariz. Chocolate, vainilla, alguna especia. Cremosa. Sin rastro del alcohol. Pero en boca excesivamente dulce. BOTELLA. Batch 110917. BB 11/09/20?? jookos (7202) - FINLAND - FEB 3, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 bottle at home. this hides its alcohol very well. not sure what are tonka beans are. my mind things they are like kidney beans. they is a big vanilla taste in the beer. little carbonation although doesnt spoil the beer. very little head. the biggest flavour is vanilla and seems to take over the beer hauxe (1063) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2018
Pours black from the bottle Virtually no head and what there is soon fades. Aroma. This is undoubtedly the beer’s strength. A heady mix of vanilla and spice greets the nose. The unusual spice flavors reminded me of a Christmas cake and pumpkin pie all in one. No doubt the tonka beans, which is something that’s new to me. Truly a dessert beer. Taste is sweet full of raisins, spice and vanilla. No trace of the 13% ABV. Body is heavy, thick and syrupy. This exceeded my expectations in a positive way. Excellent.
