2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy dark red with a white colored head. Aroma is of plums, raisins and spices. Especially cloves. I get the belgian aroma on this beer immediately. Mouthfeel is rich and sweet if maybe a tad too carbonated for my taste. I get loads of raisin, plum, candisugar and caramel. I didn’t really like this beer as much as i’d hope to. Maybe it’s the carbonation, maybe it’s because it’s a tad too sweet.

Bottle. Dark amber body, small offwhite head. Christmas spicy aroma with caramel and roast, toasted taste with earthy hops, ginger, caramel and licorice. Light bitterness, dry spiced finish. Quite decent, though I followed the advice on the back on the bottle and left a glass for Santa overnight, he didn’t touch it and after three days I poured it out and don’t believe in santa anymore :/
