Strong aroma of licorice, laurel and raisin. Hazy, brown color, yellowish firm head, good lace. Sweet, sourish, light bitter, fruity, hint of licorice, laurel, bit herbal. Medium full and warming mouthfeel. Bit unbalanced and a bit too much spices.
Bottle: Hazy, chestnut-amber coloured with an almost creamy beige head; moderate sweetish toasted-malty nose, backed by some dried fruits; solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF; fruity (almost liquorice?) traces in the sweet and toasted finish, hops only detectable in the aftertaste. Well quaffable, reminds You a bit of a Porter or a Sweet Stout............ MoritzF (10129) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2008
(swing top bottle, courtesy of Papsoe) Hazy, murky amber colour with a big but not very persistent beige foamy head. Light-sweet and slightly sourish fruity (dried prunes) nose with a slightly toasted malt-character and slightly woody and herbal hops in the background. Light-bitter flavour with a tinge of fruity acidity; medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly yeasty and toasted cara-malty taste with moderately fruity notes; quite dry, slightly bitter and toasty finish with a light but balancing hops character. Likeable (26.03.08). ciuspan (94) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008

[thank you, Myrup]
Pours a great mahogany with a small creamy yellow-beige head. Aroma is sweet, light caramel, hops (albeit American in an ESA). Fine mouthfeel. Good primary flavours, a bit sloppy aftertaste. Sweet, lots of roasted caramel, good dry hoppiness, light ginger and dried fruits.
