ChrisOs Christmas Tasting. Opaque brown beer. Tidy mid tan head. Softish fluffy palate. Sweetish mid malt, maple. Mild tang. A little coffee. Minerals. Aniseed alcohol. Lacto malt. A little chocolate. Finishes semi dry and milldy warming. Complex but perhaps could do with a little ageing. Great beer though!

Bottle. Thanks to Hallinghansen for sharing some. First of all, I love the other breakfast versions and this is up there with them as well, if not a new top 10 for me, then close. Pours black with small brown bubbles on top. Nose is fresh coffee, roast, vanilla, wood, bourbon and syrup. Sweet , vinous and complex. Sweet flavor with a bit of dark fruit, vanilla, bourbon, wood, tobacco, coffee, licorice and syrup. Roasted and bitter finish. Smooth , soft and oily. Really really lovely. Thanks Jacob - U Da Man.
