3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours very cloudy amber golden with a creamy, off-white head. Sweetish, fruity nose with a touch of yeast. Medium body with a very smooth mouthfeel. Quite fruity, some overripe accents, lightly vinous - sherry-like - with an underlying tartness. The bitterness is quite discreet. Elegant, but not really what I would expect from a Christmas beer. 051207

Bottled. Hazy deep goldenish orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is yeast, fruits, spices, vegetables and some other sweet stuff. Flavour is ginger, pepper, yeast caramel malts and some slight rubber. Hides the alcohol very well. Pleasant.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Cloudy deep golden, firm head. Fruity nose with herbal spices - cinnamon and ginger spring to my mind. Vinous with vital, rounded mouthfeel. Fiery alcohol lies undeneath and some pleasant lactic acidity adds freshness and complexity. Full bodied. So wonderfully complex - every sip brings out a new aspect. There’s orange and butter, berries and, muscat wines and everything else I want. I tried to be a sceptic, but failed hopelessly. Oh, what a beer!
