Poured a 2010 Scaldis Noel Premium into a Piraat tulip glass. Best before 2015. A thick white/cream head that fades rather quickly into no lacing and a cafe thin layer head over a dark amber cloudy liquid . Two years aging in simi optimal conditions. Smells of everything. Tastes of everything. Dates, bananas, chocolate, coffee, kiwi, ginger, nutmeg, curry (this is amazing!). Toasted marshmallow, orange bitters, a touch of cinnamon, slightly toasted/burnt cream/salted lemon/spiced cider/flan/a crisp tart/sweet potatoes. It is not as drinkable as it could possibly be: it is an amazing beverage that expresses its spiciness too much in combination with its slightly too high of level of syrupyness and sweetness. Balanced wonderfully, yet it does not yield itself to more than four glasses. An amazing beverage that should be tried by all who come accros it.
