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.

NordicV (1128) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2012
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.

Backlog. 2011-version. On tap at Green Lion Inn. Im not really a fan of the winter-seasonals and this was just one in the line of un-impressing winter-seasonal.

Bottle@home Apperance: Bronze-reddish with a creamy, beige, head. Aroma: Roasted malts, Bitterhops, Pine, Hint of chocolate. Flavor: Roasted malts, Dark bread, Citric notes, Hops, Chocolate. Palate: Lowish carbonation. Liquid feels smooth and easy to drink. Nice bitter aftertaste. Dunno what’s so christmasy about this one but it’s a solid beer. Very english in style.

AlbertC (276) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2011
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.
