CloakedDagger (748) - - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an almost clear amber with hardly any head. Slightly phenollic aroma, caramel and nuts as well. Rich, sweet malty body - very low in carbonation. Slightly metallic. Ok I guess - very British. 271214

Sigmund (5320) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2014
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet (1 year old). ABV is 7%. Clear and beautiful deep reddish brown colour. Moderate off-white head. Moderate but nice aroma of dark fruits, fruit cake, Christmas spices and earthy hops. Smooth mouthfeel. The flavour has a moderate malty sweetness, with distinct notes of Christmas spices, also notes of dark fruits and caramel, distinct earthy hops in the finish. Not bad.

StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
A dark copper red coloured beer with a weak off white coloured head. A light malt aroma, some spice and bready, with a mild red fruit background. Dry mouthfeel. A dry malty taste to start, nutty and biscuity, then a slightly sweeter fruity flavour, including cherry and even raisin. Then a bready flavour bringing a mild spice. The finish is dry, malty and fruity.
