3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl. bottle (10.9 % alc.) poured in to a Trappist glass, leftovers from last Christmas. My first Christmas themed beer of this season. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge and a dense, tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, chocolate, toast, liquorice, dark, dried fruits, candid sugar and spices. Somewhat alcohol dense. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes fruity with toasted notes, spices and alcohol. A bit to much alcohol to be really great. Nice winter warmer. However, lacks a bit bodily compared to some of the rich Belgian Christmas beers.

Söt väldigt god smak, doft av god choklad och karamell. Den höga alkoholhalten är personligen en betygssänkare. Flaska från Systembolaget.
