3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was waiting to try this one again, tried it in december and remembered that it was very good. Aroma of dried fruit, especially raisins. Caramel, nuts and some chocolate is also in there. Aftertaste is quite sweet with good tones of raisins. This is a really good christmas ale, looking farward to the next batch when christmas is approaching.
