3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 Bottled. A dark purply-brown coloured beer with a small tan coloured head. Big aroma of dried fruit together with a little oakiness, rum and brown sugar. The taste is yeasty and very fruity. Lots of different berries compete with candy sugar and alcohol. Quite complex and very tasty but the initial joy can give way to a little cloyingness.Score 3.5

God og behagelig juleøl. Tilpas med krydderier. God smag, men med en anelse for meget alkohol.
