mcberko (9322) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a near-black with a medium tan head. Aroma of Xmas spices, burnt caramel, some burnt cocoa and some charred malt. Flavour follows the burnt aromatics, with burnt molasses, some sherry-like oxidation, burnt caramel and a bit of a smoky quality. Quite heavy, burnt and somewhat spicy. The burnt qualities work well actually. Great stuff.

Rune (9296) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2013
From tap at The Bishop Arms in Copenhagen. Small glass served at the right drinking temperature. Coal black body with a dark red shade. Low head, dotted spots to the glassware. Dark malty aromas joined by a nice touch of Christmas spices. Rich Yuletide taste of anise, coffee, and chocolate on a moderate roasted backbone. Long bittersweet tail tingled with alcohol warmth. Great stuff that fits the holiday season. Enjoyed in a relaxing atmosphere. I’ve always liked visiting this place and even placed one of my books in their library. Thanks (Copenhagen 09.12.2013).
