Bottle. It pours a clear, copper to brown body and a finger-thick off-white to light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is dominated by dried fruits and caramel. Some alcohol too, and a nice hoppyness. Full-bodied and a bit heavily carbonated, slightly warming. Some hints of cooked corn in the flavor, but that disappeares in the split of a second, followed by caramel, dried fruits and a touch of spicyness. Some coffee-like roasted notes in the far back. Lasting finish with caramel and dried fruits. A nice one, picking up the Christmas spirit in a nice way, and of course well suited for a long, cold winter. 110304

Flaske fra Polet og på Cardinal, jan-12: Har likt denne hver gang jeg har prøvd. Interessant med den utpregede rosinsmaken. Håper de lager en ny batch av denne.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 14.08.2016
Aroma is malty with lots of toffee and hints of berries. Also some vanilla and baking stuff. Flavour has raspberries, some toffee, malty notes and caramel. Some fruity hops occur after a sip. Also some yeasty and worty notes at the middle of the glass. Quite odd and somewhat messy, but for some reason I seem to enjoy this.

mikkopen (903) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2013
330 ml bottle. Hazy yellowish brown colour, thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruits and a whiff of alcohol. The flavour is sweetish malty, with raisins and notes of nuts, and a warm nutty finish. Not bad.
