3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap at Blå Rock Cafe, Tromsø 12 Des 12. Deep, deep red. Almost black. Very hazy. OK head lasting a couple of minutes and clinging to the glass. The aroma is spice & peppermint. The flavor is the same with addititional Christmas spices. Works great as a Christmas beer - but probably best as a stand alone beer for dessert.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml, draught at Ølhallen. Dark brown coloured body. Fading off-white head, leaving dotted spots down the glass. Smell of dark malts with subdued vapour of anise. Star anise up front in the flavour profile carefully added by other Christmas spices on a backbone of dark malts with just a little roastiness. Medium bodied. Does not get too sweet, but maybe a bit unvaried (Tromsø, 07.12.2012).
