Slow gusher, managed to control it. Biggish dark brown head. Hazy dark red, nearly opaque body. Fruity honey and peppery spicy aroma with lacquer, cardamom, and pine needle notes. Dry-sweetish peppery fruity licorice and spice taste with cardamom and pine needle notes. Some unpleasant acidity. Mid-bodied. Sharp mouthfeel with considerable alcohol heat. Dry roasty licorice aftertaste with same spice notes. Nice, but marred by what appears to be a mild infection. Poured it out. (0.5l bottle, Ølbutikken, Copenhagen.)
