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.

75 cc bottle. Beautiful mahogany color and a huge, nice head. The aroma has sweetness and spicy notes and the flavour is complex, but I find spice, resin and malt. A special, but nice beer.
