Best by Jan 2010 notched on label of 33cl bottle. Opened at room temp (60F) to a huge gusher. Got about 20cl in my tulip, head immediately dies to a thin ring around glass. Dark brown liquid.

Smells herbal, medicinal. Notes of licorice, concord grape juice, alfalfa. Kind of reminds me of Jägermeister.

Medicinal taste as well, almost sickly sweet. There are many herbal and other strange flavors for beer in here - I can't describe them accurately. Maybe oak, raisin, green tea, cherry cough syrup. In any case, it's an unusual cocktail.

Sticky and cloying mouthfeel. Alcohol noticeable in aftertaste.

Not particularly drinkable, save perhaps for herbal beer fanatics.
