3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap @ BrewPub) Pours black with big toffee head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is star anise, roasted malt with hints of coffee. I’ve begun to realise I loathe spices in beer. Oily texture, soft carbonation, full body with a roasted bitter finish. The star anise permeates the smell and taste of this beer and does not play well with the roasted malt to my palate.

Pours a completely dark colour with a good tan head. Loads of mocca in the aroma, as in the flavour. Also some licorice and coffee in there. Long and intriguing aftertaste which just get you want more. Super balance between the different tastes. Full bodied, with avarage carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. One of the best christmasbeers I’ve tried.

Could smell more, but smells good.
Christmas spices and anis in the taste.
A good beer but could be more taste.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Mørk brun i glasset, god aroma av lun kaffe. Smaker som en typisk porter, ristet malt og kaffe, samt noe sødme. God munnfølelelse. Ganske god øl.
