Flaske 0,33l fra Kilpishalli. Delt med Rune under seanse i H9 17 Jan 13. Brunrød. Middels høyt skum som daler raskt. Grei maltaroma. Smaken litt metallisk. Antydning til frukt - men er og blir litt kjedelig.

Colour is cola mixed with water. Brief dark brown head. Mild aroma of dark bread. Body is light. Malty and sweet like a dark lager is. Mild coffee notes. This beer offers no big surprises. Where’s the christmas?

Sweet aroma with hops. Not that sweet taste with little bitterness and spicyness. Only little watery and high sizzling carbonation.

[Thanks to oh6gdx]. Dark coppery colour with minimal, almost non-existing off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with candy sugar notes. Flavour is bready, notes of plumbacke and syrupy sugar are present. Dense on palate, the final has a long sweetness. Carbonation is low. Body is medium.
