Flaska från SB. Delade meningar runt julbordet. Hälften gillade inte alls den här. Den andra hälften var mycket förtjusta. Däribland jag. Är i stort sett en exakt kopia av Dugges Juldricka. Om den skrev jag: "Nötiga dofter tillsammans med knäck, citron och röda äpplen. Karamell, sötlakrits, nötter och grape i smaken. Trevlig beska." Finns ingen anledning att kommentera det mer än så.

Poured from bottle, dark red brown with beige head. Aroma with notes of caramel, dark bread herbs and some dried fruit. Taste is mild with notes of dark bread, dried fruit and a little spice. Not to sweet and just enough bitterness. Nice after taste. Good beer to the Christmas dinner!
