Nuts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, licorice and some fruits and berries in the aroma. Dark brown with a tan head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium to full body with a average carbonation. Overall quite nice, but perhaps a bit to carbonated.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very deep ruby going on brown colour. Very clear (this beer is filtered) with a light beige head. Little in the way of aroma, but the taste is very smooth with a red fruits - cherry, strawberry, raspberry and plum - present in the taste along with coffee and brown bread. Very little hop flavour, but enough to balance the sweetness. Beautiful Christmas Ale, although I am not sure that I would call it a porter, the description under which it is listed.
