25 cL bottle. Pours deep red with a fully gone head. Mild woody note of oak. Flavour is quite woody with a solid malt flavour. Finish is mild caramel malty with more of the same woody note. Nice but also a bit vague compared to other oak aged.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
(Bottle 25 cl) Courtesy of highlandlad. Clear, dark brown with a reddish hue and a small, beige head. Aroma of fruit, roasted malt and woody notes. Quite full-bodied with sweet notes of fruit and hard roasted malt - and then again these accents of wood. Subdued bitterness. Fairly unique and very pleasant. 171207

omhper (23728) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown. Aroma of sage and nutmeg. Sweet and roasty with mild, rounded mouthfeel and rich malt character. Warming and very enjoyable with some herbal bitterness in the finish. The balance between the malt and spices are excellent, and from all the good beers I’ve tried from this brewer this is probably my favourite.

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2010

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2014
Dark brown, not much head. Aroma is all kinds of cinnamon and clove, maybe ginger. Pretty thin, light ginger and clove, a bit of sweeter dark malts. Definitely too light for northern Christmas but I guess in Oz its a bit warmer in December.
