4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Here is again a Christmas beer that clearly stand out others on the market. It is very dark (almost black) and has a subtle reddish tinge. The foam is very temporary. It has a delicious aroma of roasted malt, raisins and a little alcoholic aroma. The taste is quite wonderful. It has the sweet caramel malts richness, rich fruit which gives it a comfortable acidity, alcohol warmth and a soft hop bitterness. It is complete.

Bottle. Pours clear dark ruby/amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and caramel with notes of fruit and spice and touches of hops. Dusty onset, replaced by sweet notes of caramel malt and notes of hops. Bittersweet aftertaste. Well past the BBD but definitely drinkable and quite enjoyable.
