COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a strong hearty festival beer for those good relaxing moments when you are cuddling up in front of a roaring fire feeling the warmth from both beer and flames.

McTapps (5334) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from trade with Meilby- thank you! The beer has got a deep black colour with an steady, beige head and medium body. Aroma of peat, torf and roast. Taste of roasted malt, woods, earth, leaves, spices, light smoke and vanilla. Bitter woody finish with some roasty, smokey hints. Not that easy to drink, yet quite enjoyable and special. Liked it.

MichaelAwesome (5334) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
Full of dark chocolate, high drinkability and a really full body with some high abv you may notice towards the ends. Roasted malt and that stuff but the chocolate hits the points here. A bit smoky in the finish but all around a good piwo with that special something in.

Cool_Bond (1930) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2014
Charcoal, smoke, dark malty aroma. Sweetness, fruitiness and strong coffee taste. Incredibly heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Too much carbonic otherwise the beer was really enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
