LordDrachen (116) - reggio emilia, - MAY 23, 2011
Really drinkable for a brown ale. Brown colored and cappuccino-like head (average). Very coffee, milky aroma with nuts, roasted and some chocolate too. Taste is quite light, with not so long mouthfeel. Light bitterness and milky sweetness. More drinkable as i expect. Good one.

esox (1164) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Draught. Foaming like hell, dark brown-amber, somewhat cloudy. Strong raisin notes when too cold, some herbal notes. Syrupy, toasted bread is more obvious when warmer. Dried fruit notes, as long as sweet herbal hops. Dryish malt flavor, grains, sweetish chocolate, somewhat herbal hop aftertaste. Medium body, frothy texture.

0,5l bottle. Dark,brown,with hints of licorice and raisins. Pretty standard xmas brew,albeit not labelled as such,but preferable to the typical dunkel or amber and dark lagers.
