3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
While this is a nice enough Christmas beer, I didn’t catch that much spicyness - just an overall pleasantly sweet and strong beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy nutbrown look with a head disappearing so fast, you hardly notice its there. The overall dominating aroma is honney, could smell it a meter away when the bottle was oponed, before anything was poored from it. Mixed with the aroma is some spices, guess when im told its nutmeg, i can smell it, but really, i think its more peppery. Flavor is definetly mainly sweet, which really hides the alchohol well, didnt think it was 7% till i saw. It has a decent amount of dusty hobs aswell, leaving some bitterness in the end aswell.

An annoying, unnatural sweetness that is attempted masked by a horde of inappropriate bitterness and a veritable bubble fest -- this beer does nothing to subvert my image of this brewery as a mainstream-ish wannabee. Like all Gourmet Bryggeriet’s wares that I’ve tasted, this offering lacks depth, that which is genuine and heartfelt brewer’s pride. No use in going into a technical description of impressions per se, that can be found elsewhere on these pages, but for the umpteenth time I feel compelled to bash the glaring lack of soul in so many DK micros. Revelling in fine drink, the spirit is lifted up to the heavens; swilling old dregs like this, it is depressed.
