Appearance: clear dark red, fine beige head, streaks of drippy lace
Aroma: sweet fruity aroma with a lot of spicyness
Flavor: rich malt flavor, lots of fruity esters, touch of alcohol brings out the fruityness in the esters, lots of sweetness from beginning to end but never too sweet

Mode: draft
Source: brick store
Appearance: hazy dark burgendy, big creamy tan head
Aroma: aroma is drier allowing the spicyness to come out with the fruityness staying in the background
Flavor: flavor is drier as well, still dominated by the fruity character but the spicyness gets to share the limelight, no sign of alcohol
Overall: slight preference to the bottle version

Aroma: sweet caramel aroma with lots of spicyness that dries it out
Overall: sweet malt is well balanced by the spicyness, light bitterness rises out of the spices, plenty of bitterness

madsberg (10459) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2003
On tap:. Dark red coloured with a decent medium lasting head. Lots of spiced in the aroma (seems like i""ve tasted coriander in all the beers tonight). Besides the coriander taste, this beer has a destinct taste of christmas. Theres cinnamon, green cardamom and cloves in the flavour. Has some sweetness in the palate.
