Quite good beer with an interesting taste. A little different than most christmas beers and thankfully not as sweet. Not overly impressed by the aroma or the palate, but the taste was definitely ok.

Dark brown with a small off-white head. Strong and perfumed spicy aroma with a touch of dried fruits. Sweet roasted flavour with coffee and chocolate notes, and lots of spice. When you know it you recognize some ginger, but it feels like a big mix of spices. Odd and oddly fascinating
