3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the ChrisO Snow Tasting, London - thanks to Colin! Pours clear, red-brown with a light, off-white cream head. Mellow aroma, some semi-dark malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasted dry malts, moderate leafy bitterness, earth. Medium bodied with very high carbonation. Sweetish finish, some semi-dark bread. Not much pumpkin, not much spruce. Fairly bland, actually, and certainly not extreme.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Chriso Snow Tasting, from an IP trade with Kurt, 20/01/13.
Hazed dark brown with a thin tan head that soon dissipates.
Nose is dark fruits, drak malts, spice.
Taste comprises dark malts, background chocolate, touch of wood (spruce I guess), fruit, light soap.
Medium bodied with some bitterness in the finish.
Ok - drinkable stuff but lacks depth and ultimately fails to deliver for an 8% beer!
