Heavy and fragrant aroma. The taste, however, is a little thin, unfortunately.

RexTalionis (2615) - FINLAND - APR 30, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours black in color with a tan head. Spicy notes, cardamum, christmas feeling here in aroma, subtle though. Spicy in taste as well, cardamum and some herbal notes. Decent. Reminds me in a way of some vintage xmas bre made by anchor brewing.

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2014
This one looks like it tastes. Wonderfully warming with some raisins, a bit of wood, some leaves and chocolate. Deep in its taste, deep in its aromas and just really well balanced. Wonderful one.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle from Cunningham - many thanks, Henrik! The beer pours out in a deep dark amber-brown colour with steady low head and medium body. Nice aroma of barley and herbs. Taste of malt, barley, bread, nuts, herbs and spices. Aromatic finish with cinnamon woods hints. Nice one.

Backlog. Bottle from systembolaget. A pretty average winter-seasonal. Not really my cup of tea.
