3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A hazy, dark amber beer with a dense, light beige head. Quite malty aroma, with a touch of dark wort and raisins. Pine cones too. Sweet flavor with a decent bitterness, but it’s too sweet and worty. Dried fruits too. Full body, soft carbonation. Some dark sugar towards the finish. Well, not my kind of IPA. Ok, so it’s Christmasy in a way, and it’s decent, but I don’t feel an urge to repeat it. 140608
