COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

Dark amber brown with a medium tan head. Smells of pine needles and malts. Taste is abrasive, like a floor wax with a pine needle scent. Very sharp, with flavors of raisens, mint, pine, and soap. Can't say I enjoyed this one at all.

Ernest (6160) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Served at BJ's winter warmer fest, 2002 bottle. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted light bread, caramel, nutty), moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers), with notes of peach and orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent. Very well-balanced and clean.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Clear, brown-red with a nice and fruity alcoholic nose. Sweet, but kind of light malts. Complex fruity aromas as well. Frothy texture with a tingly, spikey carbonation. Warming in the throat, fulfilling, slightly bitter. Very dry, puckering finish.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 looks pretty damn tasty..nice 3.4 inch of pure cream on top of an evil looking ruby/maroon..the aroma was a malty bready slightly spicy concoction..malty, metallic, bready flavors..no hop profile at all..just a bunch of semi-creamy malts..but it bores me.

cloudy throughout. Tons of barley in the nose, I like that familiar Aass aroma. Nice and malty, with a dry-ish finish. Sweet stuff.

Pours a dark brown color with little head. Sweet and malty, with notes of bread, biscuits, and cookie dough. Also a hint of fruity sweetness at the top. A good beer, but I’ve had better Christmas beers.

Nice color. A little skunky with a boring tobacco like aftertaste. Won’t buy again
