2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cL bottle. Pours brown and slight reddish hazy. Head is dense light brown head. Soapy ginger aroma. Mild liqourice base to a ginger flavour on top. Ginger dominantly and with a mild cardemomme note. Ends the same way as the ginger remains dominant. To heavy on the ginger but otherwise not bad, but me and ginger in beer is a no-match.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A red-brown beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is extremely spicy and sweet with cloves standing out. The flavor is also very sweet and totally dominated by cloves. There is a lot of Christmas in this one - maybe a bit too much for my liking.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a cloudy dark brown with a vague tint of orange and an off-white head that leaves quite some lacewórk. The aroma is spicy with ginger - and perhaps mint - sticking out. Body is medium with some roasted and perhaps even a little burned malts. Again plenty of spices, ginger and something reminding me of cola nut! Some bitterness from both hops and malts rounds this eccentric brew off. I have a hard time finding out if I really dig this, but one thing is for certain, it’s a beer that lives up to its name: "Weird Christmas". 080807

Clear brown - red beer. Soft palate. Spicy beer! But not hot spice. Lots of ginger and smooth cinnamon. Lactose sweet malt buried underneath, but this beer is all about the spice and it’s delivered well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black color. Crazy aroma: sweet, spices (cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom), lemon peel. Spicy, malty flavor; caramel, Fernet Branca… An odd mix!
(I should try warm)
