1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The first thing a noticed about this one is the non-existing head, and then the aroma..Which was close to nothing, but after a few whiffs, I found a sweet malty aroma, followed by a touch of hops.
The taste is just awful, a bad mix of sugar, malt and hops.
I was extremely dissapointed by this one, and I have no idea what I was thinking when I first bought this one, and called it good!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 2012 version, liquorice, malts, some tangy stuff. Overall lacking and watery. Beer without hops. Sweet is dominant.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
No head, deep heavy aroma of malts, malts and malts. This stuff is very malty, the maltiest stuff I have had, it is sweet, but not too sweet. The easter malt brew was better.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2003 Dark and stout like, except for almost no head. Hardly any aroma. Malty flavour with hints of liquorice and some strange unidentified flavour looming in the background. Hardly any aftertaste, but then there is very little taste overall. I'd be surprised if there are hops in this.
Thoroughly unimpressive, which is sad since the brewery's other christmas offering is quite decent.
