The flavor profile here is a surprisingly balanced malt and spice combo, almost comes across as a very serviceable take on a Belgian dark ale. The bourbon element is enjoyable, but in sweet, oily way - there’s very little in the way of genuine oak flavor here, or at the very least, it doesn’t come out that way in the mix. Well worth a try, however, and certainly in the upper tier of christmas beers that saturate the market this time of year.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pours amber with a medium sized, off-whie to beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and notes of caramel. Sweet flavour that ends up more dry. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. As the original version a little overspiced but an OK christmas brew.

Bottle. Aroma strong strong oily cherry wood, sandal wood, lime and lemon. Very oriental feel reministent of scented burning sticks. Weird, but interesting. Clear dark brown colour. Taste is oily, strong cinnamon. Now that i think of it, aroma had it too. It is overwhelming in flavour. Strong sweetness. Really unique spicy, even oily experience.

Bottle, pours dark brown, aroma is woody and flavour has a lot of wood in there too, quite strong flavour wise. But overall, it was enjoyable
