This beer has a dark red body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is karamelsweet.

(Bottled@Kerstbierfestival 2007, Essen) Hazy darkish amber with a smallish head. Typical, stuffy Pakhuis house aroma with roasty malt and some alcohol. Licoricey-malty, toffeeish flavor beats the aroma, but doesn’t really impress. Some gingerbread, and warming alcohol. Medium body, smooth and low-carbonated. Average.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with very ruby-red highlights; even the head is pinkish coloured, not stable. Chocolate, some malt - nothing else to smell. Sourish notes above a lot of malt, some fruity cherry notes. Strange. Medium bodied, but very light, watery texture. Ends much sweeter in the aftertaste. It grows on you - but seen where it had to come from...
