500ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
A bit stodgy. Full smoothg and soft palate, a bit yeast (I got the final pour from the bottle). Grains are certainly pleasant though, and it’s not saying 6%, that’s well hidden. Not quite bocky enough for me.

Draught at brewpub. Dark hazy amber-brown with a healthy, dense foamy head. Very slight buttery diacetyl sting, spicy caramel, red fruit on the nose too. Nice thick oily feel, sweet toffee syrup, bread dough, touch of spice, softest peppery bitterness, warming booze finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at 7 Stern. It pours cloudy golden amber with a thick off-white head. The nose is unfortunately diacetyl, buttered white toast, dough, spice and candy. The taste is toast, spice, caramel, dough, subtle butter, decent bitterness, orange peel, tangy citrus, varnish and alcohol warmth. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Tastes good, but a big shame about the diacetyl.... Will try to re-rate.

09/12 Another Marko’s 0.5l bottle, great thanks for sharing! It poured copper body with medium sized head. Sweet biscuit aroma, nice. Sweetish malt flavor, well balanced with bitter herbal hops, as it gets warmer it becomes even better and showed more malty characteristics like raisins and toffee. Medium to full bodied. Long, caramel and biscuit finish. A nice Christmas beer for sure!
