2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copenhagen 17/4 2015. 50 cl bottle from Skjold Burne. Jazzy Christmas label with Christmas elf playing trumpet. Pours hazy orange with yellowish head. Aroma is strong and sweet. Reminds me of cough syrup with notes of licorice. Soft carbonation. Fairly strange but Christmas inspired taste. As advertised on the label strong notes of cardamom and rather strong sweetness. Aftertaste is a little hot - probably the chili mentioned on the label with strong notes of alcohol. Not a thirst quencher and probably more strange than good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle @ Fox and Hounds, Aabenraa. Slightly unclear golden body with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma is mild malty and dominated by ginger and cookie spices. Flavor is totally dominated by chili, some cardamom, Christmas cookie and light malt with low bitterness. Medium body and burning chili aftertaste. OK for the chili burn, but not even close to balanced.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tart-yellowish head, hazy golden apricot body, sediments, some lacings.
Scents; flowers, sweet malts, cardamum, dough, toffee.
Taste; strong caramel, hops, bitter, pepper, spices, sweets and alcohol.
Strong stuff on palate. Fading peppery finish. This brew would benefit from lower abv,
but nevertheless it goes well along with spicy powerful dishes.
