3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 50 cl. Large beige thick foamy head that really lasted. Good display of lacework. Dark mahogany color. Aroma of mild toasted malt, light fruity notes, hints of spice. Over the palate the toasted malty notes almost becomes roasted like feel with a hint of dark fruit and light alcoholic touch. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavor with some roasted bitterness to counter the sweetness. Light lingering roasted malty sweetness to finish this beer off. Nice tasteful X-mas indeed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a cloudy brown with a beige head. Sweet and roasted malty nose. Medium to full body, sweet roasted maltiness - very malty indeed - with hints of dried fruits. Warming alcohol in the finish but hardly any traces of hops. A pleasant X-mas brew that will offend nobody. 210909
