Murky brown color with almost no head.
Dark fruits on the nose, wine-like aroma, caramel, toffee and cherry.
Flavor of butterscotch candy, caramel malts and alcohol, no bitterness.
Full body and heavy, long thick finish. So so.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks avrashi. Murky brown. Aroma of malt, sherry, raisins, a bit of cardboard and a bit of chocolate notes. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, chocolate, some dark fruits notes and oxidation. Finishes drier. Medium-bodied. Not so fun.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a small white head that recedes quickly. Murky. Nose is caramel, nutmeg, pumpkin, ginger and leather. Taste is underwhelming. Not as sharp as the nose would imply. However. It is sweet with a decent bitter presence. Mouthfeel is soft, smooth and creamy. Light body and great finish.
