3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel, dried fruits, brown sugar, licorice, hay and hints of spices and lightly roasted malts in the aroma. Brown with a off-white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Overall not a bad attempt on a Christmas brew from Lervig, but perhaps a bit on the boring side.

Brun/röd med litet skum. Doftar och smakar väldigt sött! Inte direkt julig och sämre än väntat

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I had expected more from this and was a bit disappointed: weak head, sweetish and generic aromas - some hops. Ok but not great.

One-year-old beer today. It tastes... mediocre. A bit liquorice-ish. Too sweet. And it tastes... old.
Do not store this beer!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber-brown about clear body, hoohoo beige-fawn head, poor lacing.
Aroma; berries, caramel malts, dusty hops.
Taste; medium dark caramel malts, dark fruits, plum peel, prune, anise, faint ginger. Finishes slightly dry, sweet.
Feels alright, good body, fine carbonation. Overall fine sweet sipper, to the fruit plate, the nuts or confectionery, maybe even cheese.
