Cask at the White Horse Old Ale Festival, 27th Nov 09. Very dark brown looks. Amazing nose - cereal, christmas cake, spices. Tastes superb - so much spice and fruit, with a wonderful peppery hint of the alcohol in the finish. An utterly sublime Christmas beer. Awesome.

Bottle. Sweet banana, rose, cherry, white pepper and barley malt aroma - excellent. Dark reddish brown with small head. Sweet floral fruit flavor up front followed by chocolate malt and astringent alcohol. Excellent - enjoying this one by the fire on a cold, dreary German New Year’s Day.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. on ØJ-dag. @ YNWA, Kolding
Pours a deep red with lots of bubbles in the liquid. Head is creamy, off white and stays for quite some time. Sweet aroma, light strawberries and a roasted spicyness. Full, lively and still a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is dominated by slightly burned caramel, apples, chocolate, strawberries, toffee, cinnamon, coriander and cardemum. The spices never ’take over’, lying perfactly balanced in the back. Lightly dry and spicy sweet aftertaste.

Bottled 750ml. -Dark brown coloured, small to medium pale brown head, chocolate and plums in the nose. Sweet malty, dark fruits and alcoholic with notes of chocolate and spices. Nutty notes in the finish. Smooth and very drinkable for 9% ABV. Great Noel and so far the best Italian beer I’ve tried.
