Bottle. Not so bad, but quite light. Shows some light spiceyness (kind of a Christmasy sort of spice- cinnamon, nutmeg), but as i say it is quite light. Some caramel and dark fruit, with some light acidity.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy, reddish amber with a creamy, beige head. Very spicy aroma with cardamom and cloves sticking out. Rather full body. Sweet, roasted malty notes, some yeast and then again these very spicy notes. Interesting but gets cloying after a while. 291106
