Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2008
(Draught) Pours beautiful deep dark red. The aroma is of cookie and caramel like malt with a hop blanket of oranges covering everything. Also some notes of sweet liquorice and chocolate. The undertones hold some notes of fruits and flowers. The flavour is clean, full and complex malty with tones of liquorice and caramel. Some notes of oranges as well. The mouthfeel is mild roasted, soft, round, smooth and full. This as good as this type of ale gets. Extremely clean without being lifeless. I like.

På fat @ Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö. Mörkröd öl med ett nästintill icke-existerande skum. En del julkryddor, samt apelsinmarmelad och kola i aromen. Julkryddor, enbär och apelsin i smaken. Viss beska i eftersmaken.

Cool_Bond (2263) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2013
Really good smell. The taste is heavenly good but the black malt sneaks himself surprisingly forward. The aftertaste is long and good but not too dry. Really good beer as me. Not like other Christmas beers I’ve tried. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Cask @ Bishop Arms Malmö, Savoy. Brun öl med dragning åt rött. I stort sett utan skum. Doft av mörkt bröd, russin och lätta rostade toner. Samma återkommer i smaken tillsammans med en lätt kryddighet.. Trevlig julkänsla.
