2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2006 version.Thanks to larsga for this. Looks very similar to the Berentzen beer, up to and including the batch no, but what the heck.
Lovely dark red. Sweet, some cardboard, some perfume. Watery.
A bit spicy in the aftertaste. If I wanted to order an own brand beer, I would have made more of it!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium beige head. Pretty deep dark red body. Papery, spicy licorice aroma with notes of grain. Dry, roasty taste with chocolate and paper notes and some grain. Aftertaste is dry grain. A bit watery. It’s OK, but not very exciting. (0.33l bottle. Xmas 2006 variety.)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Chestnut colour and clear. Medium-sized off-white head. Nutty and grainy malt aroma. Hints of dark chocolate and red berries. Münchenermalt flavour balanced by a little darker roasted malts. Bitterness from roasted malts and grassy dry hops. Quite rounded flavours, but with a powdery dry texture. Quite nice for a lower alcohol Christmas beer. No best before date on the bottle. (Thanks larsga. Did you forget to rate your own?)

Bottle. Slightly malty, appleish aroma. Dark chestnut colour, semi-stable head. Quite malty flavour with OK bitterness. Liquorice aftertaste, and the maltiness disappears. Bitterness turns a little rough, tannins?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(330 ml bottle). Copper colour, good head. Aroma is caramel and spices. Flavour is malty with some caramel and burnt notes, still a somewhat thin mouthfeel - this style calls for a higher ABV.
