Color rojizo oscuro pero limpio y con una buena cabeza de espuma. Aromas de sirope y regaliz. En boca eso mismo con una textura maltosa. No está mal, quizá algo empalagosa.

This beer is deceiving in its appearance versus it flavor. When you look at this beer in the glass and smell it's aroma you think it will be a coffee flavored porter. In fact it is a delightful light surprise with a fruity finish!

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark malt aroma with caramel (which comes with dark/amber malts) aroma. Black/dark brown in color with a nice and frothy tan head. Pale amber start with a malty aftertaste. Taste like a poorly made homebrew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light aromas and flavors of dried dark fruits, roast malt, caramelized apple/banana and holiday spice. Reminiscent of your average Belgian Dubbel or quad, except with a very watered down mouthfeel and finish. Decent aromas and flavors, just thin. Overall, a light and quaffable holiday ale, perfect for your average family/work gathering.. as I assume it will likely make numerous people happy with its holiday flare. Not bad, though a long ways from its Belgian cousins.

Pours dark brown, close to black with a fluffy beige head. Pleasant aroma with dark fruits, caramel and hints of chocolate and light roast. Taste has a mellow light roasty character, well balanced with a semi dry finish. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel.
