3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. The colour is dark wine red with a tint of brown. The beige foam is quite low.
The fresh smell is malty with hints of rye (crisp) bread.
The carbonation is very fresh without being too sharp.
The taste is somewhat burned with lots of malt; it is very balanced. There are notes of dark bread and a hint of raisins. The aftertaste got a growing clean bitterness and a little touch of alcohol.
A Christmas beer that is very easy to drink without abandoning its character. Very refreshing.
