COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - October to January. Available Bottle Conditioned as Christmas Ale.
This sweet malty winter ale has a port-like aroma, oranges and lemons play around the edges of the tongue whilst dried fruit and cinnamon drive home the wonderful warming effect, the walnut aftertaste completes this slice of Christmas time in a glass.

Bottle. A clear, reddish brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma has some spices, with dried fruits, roasted notes, caramel and a little sourish note. Itís too sourish in the mouth, with caramel, some spiced notes and a touch of bitterness. Medium to full body. Dried fruits, some roasted malts and spiced in the finish. Far from impressive, actually nothing more than half-good. 101105

Bottled (from Estate Wine, Holstebro). Ruby colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruits, raisins, some toffee, caramel malts and some mild fruity bitterness as well. Flavour is quite much the same. Mild spicyness as it warms up. Lovely balanced beer.

FatPhil (8636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2010
500ml bottle (Utobeer, London)
Deep red, brief head. Sweet chocolat cakey aroma, plenty of treacly sweetness. Sweet smooth palate, carbonation pleasant. Big bold sweet taste packed with roasted malts, and with a really burnt bitter bite. Definitely a spicy bent, but not in an overpowering or gimmicky way. Alcohol well covered. Finish pleasantly bitter, not just hoppy, but also burnt.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2010
Itís hazy, beautiful red mahogany with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of malt, caramel and tart berries. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of malt, citrus, slightly tart berries, caramel and the finish is rather dry, probably because of the cinnamon, that I do not find as a note. The aftertaste is long.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and some nuts, leading to a dry finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
