Aroma is flowers, christmas spices. Taste is balanced; caramel, malts, coffee, menthol, spicy and cream. Some hops kicks in at the end with the menthol building up into a very fresh finish. Good with greasy christmas food.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Has a casky look. The head is small and quickly fades into a mist on the surface and a porous ring around the glass. The colour is dark copper. Aroma: very fruity with some butterscotch and perhaps licorice. Taste: a soft maltiness, oranges, dried fruits, hard candies, and a medium bitterness (grapefruit and grass) that grows towards the end. The mouthfeel also feels a bit like hand pumped: smooth with a slight carbonation, a bit flat. A nice English style winter warmer.

Served on cask at Akkurat (Stockholm). It poured a hazy dark amber liquid with a brown tint and a medium sized dirty white head. Faint smell, but I spotted some fruits. Taste of sweet malts, some spices, fruits, burned toast. Fairly mild overall. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium thick body. Nice and easy to drink. Could have used a bit more flavour though.
