2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Veitafan. Pours a clear reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Careful aroma of some wood, leather, malt, rye bread, dried fruit and hint of chocolate. More pronounced flavour of the same but with a fruityness that feels a bit belgian. Nice. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A balanced and good Christmas ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich, heady nose. Pours very dark amber with a firm cream head. Flavour is complex with dark notes being balanced by some vinous, sherry-like sweetness. Finish is pleasingly astringent on the back of the tongue, with a lingering citrus and honey malt. Very nice indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pint.9 oz bottle pours a walnutty brown into my guinness pint glass. mild aroma of malt, toffee, roasty figgy fruit and lightly spiced, though it doesn’t seem to have any actual spice added. minty flavor, very delicately balanced and quite nice and smooth for 5.5%. medium-bodied, but any more and it would be sticky; any less and it would be weak. i like this very much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
murky brownish black color, thin off white head. Mostly a solid collar.
Almond, malt, caramel, chocolate, pear and dark fruits. Nice bold nose for such an ABV that it is.
Taste pretty much the same as the nose.
Thin but coats well and a good long lasting flavor.

Bottle from B&M Stockton. Very dark body with a cream head. Good rich flavours of caramel, raisin and a touch of licorice before a nice bitter stuff. Good tastey stuff, but easy drinking too.
