3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet alcoholic and hop soup like, combined with strong notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet spicy - especially coriander comes thru, but also with light notes of caramel. The end is very dry and spicy. I find the body thin, but at the same time the alcohol leaves a warming sensation in the mouth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2006 (Bottle 65 cl) Clear, dark amber with a handsome head that leaves a very pretty lacework. Fresh, hoppy somewhat grapefruitish aroma. Medium body with distinct caramel malt - and not so much more. Nice all right but not very christmasy in my book. 291205 and 061006

Burgundy with a rich creamy head. Floral hop aroma. Dry and medium boidied, spicy flavour, and a big, long lingering bitterness. They sure haven’t saved any money on hops in this beer....

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber with a good white head. Hop, fruits & malts. Easy alcohol & warmth. More hoppy - less sweet than ex. the Belgium "christmas ales" (American strong ale this is) Good malty caramel/brown sugar taste before some nice hops finishes the journey!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned. Pours a hazy dark amber to brown color; the head disappears quickly, but leaves clogs of foam on the surface.The aroma is very nice, at first impression, with malt and some hops from the West Coast. The mouthfeel is thinner than expected, with a dominant caramel flavor, carrying some malt, light liquorice and soy sauce too, and with a very high hopping, leading to a bitter and long final, not without qualities.
