Dark cherry colour, transparente but dense. Aromas to yeast (bread) and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel to toffee, very creamy and bodied, but not heavy. Very easy to drink and tasty. Great.

A boozy sweet brune with atypical chocolate notes. Also present are autumn fruits as rich as Xmas pudding. The finish is quite spicy with alcohol. Happy Xmas - even in June.

It has a superb dark brown colour with a very nice head. It has a very (almost too) deep aroma of caramel, cream, butter and mocha. The flavour lacks of specificity and is a little bit flat. The finish is pleasant with a nice bitterness. A good beer but unbalanced between aroma and flavour.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 Bottled Deep black body. Rocky, lightly brown head. Nose of malts: coffee, straw, molasses, ... with some liquor. Malty flavour (moderately bitter, moderately sweet) of coffee and fruits (raspberry, ...). Quite complex flavour. Well balanced, interesting but not extravagant.

Very nice christmassy nose of cinnamon and spice. Looks great in the glass - dark honey treacle with a lasting creamy head. Taste of christmas pudding with brandy sauce and other good stuff. The alcohol makes itself known just a touch on the finish in a good way. Very nice indeed.
