2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark coppery color, little vanishing head. Sweet aroma with notes of toffee. Flavor has toffee in start too, ends with mild roasted tones and some dry hops. Maybe hint of metal comes up with convenient carbonation bite. Thin to medium body.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 2004 version (BB 04/2005)
Dark amber color, foamy brownish head. Sweet toffee aroma. Malty, sugary toffee taste. Aftertaste is sweetish with a bit harsh malt flavor. Quite rounded, drinkable but simple. Anyhow, much smoother and better than III version.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2004 (Bottled, 2004 version) Dark copper color with a medium, foamy head with some lace. Quite harsh hops dominate the slightly sweet, straightforward aroma. Somewhat buttery, metallic and sweet, toffeeish-malty flavor - better than the aroma. Harsh hops present in the beginning, and no finish to speak of. Light to medium-bodied, carbonated and sugary palate. A reasonably drinkable, but quite dull and uninteresting christmas brew. (2003 version was 4-3-3-2-7=1.9)
