4.57/5  rDev +28.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

S-Spicy phenols, malt, faint apple/pear esters.

A-Deep amber, clear, but the head was short lived. Simply a thin film across the surface of the beer.

Rich, creamy, little spicy, no bitterness, slightly dry finish...medium bodied. Very drinkable.

A friend brought it back from his study abroad trip to Europe. Came in a 25 cl bottle.
