Bomber shared. Pours a deep brown with a finger of foam that lingers. Lots of bakers chocolate in the nose with some milk chocolate, cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Roasted cacao nib and yoohoo on the palate. Well-balanced, but leans a tad sweet with more christmas baking spice notes. Finish is dry with a touch of roasted malt and hoppy bitterness. Solid.

MrBeerFanatic (1051) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Rated while house hunting Indianapolis IN. Dark malt color great thick retention. Big aromas of hop/malt, BAM!! I get pine, toasted malt, med smoke, slight wood and molasses. The hop/malt pair very well. Flavors med to strong pine, just a little stronger than the med malt profile of roast, wood, and slight molasses. Med to high sweetness. Not terribly complex but just enough to be darn tasty!

Cybercat (5658) - Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Pours opaque coffee sable with a light tan head. Aroma delivers roast malt, hay and anchovy tones. Flavor features roast malt, molasses, anchovy and wood notes. Anchovies? Mouthfeel brings average body and OK fizz to the table, er, bar. Here comes Alpha Klaus, here comes Alpha Klaus, right down Alpha Klaus Lane.

@ Eddan 16-12-3: Toner av choklad och lite kryddor. Fin fyllighet och len eftersmak. Stabil
