Nice coppery clear color, small lasting head. Sweet, malty, pleasant aroma. Fresh, bread-like malty flavor. Good drinkability. Low on hops. Very nice smooth palate. Well done!

light aroma has caramel and some grass. Dark brown, hazy, short head. Basic flavor is sweet malting. In background some crisp hoppiness. Finish is roasted coffee. Full bodied, low carbonation, crisp and dry. Yeah..this has some christmas spirit, easy to drink, ok.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Courtesy of Degarth. Pours brilliant amber with almost no head. The aroma is bold yummy caramel blended with Concord grape jam sweetness. The taste has mild notes of sweet nearly grainy malts. That note gets crushed by sweet dark fruity esters and bold notes of caramel and sweet caramel flavored salt water taffee. Very nice but it adds up a bit too sweet after a few ounces are consumed.

Bottle 0,33 l. Brown amber, smallish but staying white head. Nose has malts, some earthiness, hops. Flavor is amazingly powerful for 4,7 %. Very malty, some roastiness, a bit on the syrupy sweet side, but there is a good hoppy twist in the end. Very nice and very drinkable.

Bottle from Tbone_, thanks! Dark brown color. Caramel and pear in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, fairly low on carbon. Pear, hints of cinnamon and caramel. Very pleasant beer, maybe a bit thin and onedimensional, but an easy drinker with just enough character.

Roasted malt flavour was much more than I expected.
