3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a deep dark mahogany / brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out various Christmas spices, English malt and subtle toffee notes. Flavour brings out loads of English malts, toffee, dried dark fruits (plum especially), and some spices mixed in thee without being too overburdening. Very well-constructed, though a little light on the palate for being 8.5%. Good stuff.

Draft - Orange, malts and some spice. Cloudy brown with a nice rich beige head. Orange, Christmas spice, malts and a spice and light peel finish. Too much going on for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Dark brown color, small creamy head. The aroma is lightly spicy/minty. Caramel flavor, with moderate sweetness, and loads of nutmeg; correct bitterness. Funny beer; the underlying Ale is not bad. At least nutmeg is better than cinnamon. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy brown beer with a thin white head. Aroma is completely unlike anything I’ve ever had. Pine/juniper combined with lemon and grapefruit citrus. Oily and vineous texture. Flavour shows loads of lemon, warm baking spices, yeasty and a spicy citrusy finish. Very tasty... I need more.
