Lätt brödiga, nötiga maltiga toner. Stadig kropp och en fin beska. Slutsats: Är troligen klockren till en söndagsstek..men si och så som solist..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle left over from Christmas 2012 and out of date by 3 months. Deep mahogany with an off-white head, aroma of malt & nutmeg. Taste is smooth malt with a little toffee. This has aged well & the head looks like a real ale though not bottle conditioned. Subtle bitter aftertaste, quite sweet and drinking up to its strength. Better than a fresh bottle I’ve had before.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Prominent aroma hinting of fig and molasses. Really nice amber color that is very clear (filtered). Slightly over roasted malt flavor with hints of brown corn syrup (brown sugar). Finish is a bit uncivilized and somewhat bitter. Overall I like this beer. It is a break from what I usually drink and I find the flavors complex yet balanced enough to be interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark mahogany colour with a nice lasting head on it. Aroma of dark plums, roasted nuts, caramel and over ripe dark berries - lovely.
Quite full bodied with an almost winelike quality. In addition to the flavours from the aroma, this also has a touch of strong english licquorice. Subtle bitter finish with lasting spicyness. Me like. Me like a lot.

500 ml bottle, thanks ekstedt. Dark brown with a tan head. Malty with a hint of bubblegum. Sweetish with light bitterness. Medium bodied, very light carbonation, somewhat astringent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a slight head. Aroma of roasted malt and some biscuit. Taste is first sweet malt with some caramalt, then a very bitter, dry finish. Good, but I was expecting more malt complexity.

Pours a dark copper brown. Aromas of dark malt and some hops. More interesting in the mouth with some bitter chocolate, nuts, rye bread, and more dark malt. Good balancing hops, and very dry and crisp. Good English style Christmas beer.

Not a bad beer. Slightly above average. Probably won’t get it again because there are better beers out there.
