Poured a nice dark brown with a dense off white head. Aroma was sweet,spicy with light wood and nuts. The palate was soft and it seemed to embrace the tongue. The flavour is quite sweet with notes of caramel and fruitcake with a dry bitter roasted malt finish. This is the first Christmas beer I have had that is light bodied enough to work in Australian summer conditions yet still have a respectable amount of flavour.

This beer is a gorgeous dark brown with a lingering off white head. Smells off coffee and even some pine. The coffee carries over on the palate with a bitter bite at the end. Lovely beer

Very dark brown, almost black with a thick white head. Smells of roasted malt, chocolate and liqourice. Gentle and smooth, tastes sweet but with a strong liqorice hint and a long medium bitterness in aftertaste. Perfect for the cold, winter nights.

Nice dark color resembling coffee. I get mixed aromas from nutty, to banana, to licorice, and even a bit of plum. There is a bit of body and its also quite smooth. Bready with a slight nuttiness. Would definitely be a cold weather beer.

A highly sessionable beer. Not too much in the way of aromas, but a well balanced taste of malt and hops, that refreshingly carries right through the palate.

Standard bedømmelse. Hvor er jeg i øvrigt træt af denne her åndssvage "comments" (læs=lad os fravælge øl-pøbelen, som ikke gider skrive kommentarer) funktion.

Tried a 22oz. from Bestway. Poured dark amber with a relatively thin feel. Excellent piney and mint notes. Very easy to drink. Overall a nice subdued holiday beer.

Very nice dark beer. Tastes like a Guinness stepped up a notch in complexity and intensity - delicious for those cold winter nights.

Very tasty and smooth. For a rich ale very approachable. Not up to Belgian standard but still very nice.
