4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer abandons the 750ml brown corked bottle a deep clear brow with a magisterial creamy tan head that slowly fades leaving a satin sheet of lace to coat the glass. Nose has a sweet fruit aroma with hints of spice, light sweet milk chocolate comes to mind, fresh and pleasing; start is somewhat sweet with a potent malt profile and a middling top. Finish is strikingly acidic with a definite hop spicy bite, tart and tingly, very dry and the 9 percent ABV shows in the finish and aftertaste, a delightful beer that I liked.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Chocolate, spices, marzipan, cherries and bitter orange in the aroma. Opaque ruby brown with shy, off-white head that recedes to ring. Nutty chocolate flavour with fair spiciness and a very present fruitiness. Moderate carbonation with medium-full body that fills the mouth nicely. Bottle sampled at the Voyager par des Papilles group tasting Feb-05.

Bottle conditioned, at Essen Kerstbierfestival 2004. Deep ruby red, yellow/white head and moderate condition. Sweet buttery caramel and toffee in the nose, pleasant sweet malt and gentle hop flavours in the mouth. Sweet and buttery finish with a lingering fruitiness that could almost have been bananas.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber color, mildly cloudy appearance. Little beige head. Sweet, caramel, toffee, chocolate and malty aroma, excellent one. Mild alcohol in aroma too. Flavor is nice one too:starts with sweet caramel and chocolate, ends with medium alcohol and dry mouthfeel. Caramel lasts with alcohol. Nicely crispy mouthfeel, full bodied.
