3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rosy brown hues underneath a thick mat of off-white head that clings to the glass. Caramel and christmas cake aromas, glace fruit, allspice aromas. Interesting flavour in that it has an almost sour note followed by bitterness and crystalled fruits. Not bad at all, gets a good pass mark but I was expecting a little better.

Colour could be a little bit darker, with more red shining through. Taste and smells very sweet, don’t really like that. Nice body to it though.

33 cl bottle. Dark brown with a large tan head that lasts very well. Somewhat medicinal aroma of licorice and prunes, some bready maltiness. Flavor is fruity and sweet, with notes of nuts, licorice, caramel, wood, some earthiness. Quick finish. Medium bodied.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz bottle.
It pours a reddish-brown with a huge, foamy off-white/tan head.
The smell is super nutty with a bit of dough, spices, caramel, and raisins.
The flavor has some roasted caramel with a nice bittersweet flavor, dark fruits, and roasted nuts.
It is a decent bockbier, and certainly interesting considering the brewery and location.
