3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 37,5 cl, BBE 31.08.2017. Pours dark brown with a thick creamy darkly tanned head. Huge amounts of lacing on the glass. Spices, dark chocolate, coffee and some dark dried fruits in aroma. Taste is dominated quite strongly with coffee at first. Malts and chocolate too in flavor and some hoppy herbal dryness in finish as well. Smooth, but a bit of the alcohol is pushing through. Somewhat earthy and spicy in aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, some roasted malts and a touch of yeast. Taste is the same but reveals some earthy and caramel notes with a heavy alcohol bite. Subdued carb but very appropriate. Very nice for a cold night.

Shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff.
The beer is near black with a thick beige head. Lasting retention and decent lacing. The aroma brings classic Danish roast scents, rich roasted malt, dark chocolate, yeast. Smells similar to a Danish stout. The flavor is rich and smooth. Drinks more like a European stout than a BSDA. Relatively light in body for the style, but by no means thin. Alcohol hidden very well. A solid beer. I would definitely have this again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma has dark sweet malting, licorice, herbs, citrus, pine. Lots of character and nuances. Looks also great. oily black, creamy frothy long head is beige. After aroma taste is surprisingly crisp, noppiness more in front. Good taste. Dry coffee and elements from aroma. Crisp roasted, dry finish, full. Great Christmas beer for dessert or just to enjoy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl. It’s looking really gorgeous this one, with a dark reddish brown body, and lacings left as the two-finger, dense beige head slides down the sides of the glass while drinking. Licorice, chocolate, coffee and some dried fruits hits the nose, as well as some spiced hints with cinnamon amongst other. Quite dryish on the palate, full-bodied and soft. Some alcohol warmth, and a nice bitterness in the flavor. Coffee, chocolate, licorice and dried fruits too. Bitter and roasted in the end. Certainly a good way to make a Christmas beer. 111229

served on tap into a half pint ’tulip’ style glass at the Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell (Dec ’11).
Dark brown to black colour.
Smells fruity, dried fruits, raisens, orange peel, cranberry.
Tastes of mildly spiced fruits, berries, toffee, caramel a hint of nutmeg perhaps.
Mouthfeel, creamy with a dry-ish finish, great taste and feel in the mouth and on the palate.
Overall a rich complex beer that did not dissapoint
