3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2008 (Draught) Clear, dark amber color with a medium, tight and lacy head. Quite dry and chalky aroma at first, slightly cardboardy-vegetably, but later also caramely sweet with some scotch ale character. Sweetish, nutty-oaky, moderately hoppy flavor with caramely malt. Medium to full-bodied, smooth but fizzy carbonated palate. Somewhat tasty and spicy ale with scotch ale character. Niiiice ... I like!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, DBF 2004. Amber bronze, thin off white head and moderate condition. Juicy berries dominate the aroma, sweet in the mouth with hints of malt and a fruitiness that seems like blackcurrant skins, developing into a pleasant bittersweet finish.

Pretty brown colour, poor head. Very pleasant Christmas Ale with a malty and nutty aroma and flavour. Also hints of caramel (medium sweet). Mild bitter finish. Not very spicy, but definitely pleasant enough!
