This beer is our new X-mas beer for the coming season. Milder and less powerful roasty taste than Nissefar. More maltiness from the crystal malts and more fruity taste from lots of aroma hops, incl a hard to describe taste from our secret ingredient.

MiP (14488) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2007
Bottle, 6%. Batch#46. Slow gusher, not chilled, but at cellar temperature. Nicely fruity aroma, some dried fruit and some yeast. Dark and muddy red/brown colour. Frothy light brown head, semi-stable. The flavour is quite roasted, turns nicely sweet and then roasted again. A little yeast to the flavour, but fortunately not as much as the aroma. High carbonation, a bit too much.
