The aroma is great, lovely. Sadly, the taste does not correlate. And where is the Chirstmas? There is some dark lagerish and roasted flavor, but overall taste is watery.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cola colored beer with a small head. Aroma is quite nice dark malts, coffee, roast, spices. Taste is a bit weird, not really on par with aroma. A bit salty, some malts, light bitterness. Somewhat thin. Weird stuff with the taste, but overall not bad. Not very christmassy though.

Tumman punainen/ruskea. Sopivan lievästi kitkerä, mutta jollain tavalla hieman lattea olut. Saatan ostaa uudelleen.
