3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This 2005 vintage 750mL is courtesy of Degarth. Pours dirty brown with fizzy tan head. The aroma is big with delicious smelling caramel along with figs, prunes, boysenberry, huckleberry, mild spices and raisins. Impressive aroma. The taste is very similar to the nose with creamy caramel, coriander, fruit like prunes, figs and raisins along with an alcohol note. High yumminess factor with even more caramel into the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle at Chez Sophie in Shrewsbury. Dark ruby with a substantial head. Not a particularly big aroma, but getting some caramel and subtle spiced fruit. Big, rich mouthfeel with gingery, plummy fruitcake flavours, fading a little to a slightly disappointing finish.

Deep amber in appearance. Lots of caramel sweetness in the taste at the start but with a slightly bitter finish to really even it out. Pretty boozy and warm.

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