3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours muddy and murky brown with an overactive head. A very subtle pour resulted in a 5 finger rocky head that took way to long to calm down. Once it did the nose was ripe dark fruits and rich spices along with a bit of wood. Flavor is a bit of a let down after such a rich nose. It's sweet with a bitter finished but just doesn't excite like the nose did. Mouthfeel is crisp and oily. Long aftertaste.

This beer has some intense aromas. You can taste a strong chocolate flavour, a little roasty. It gives you some sort of warm mouthfeeling. It also has a nice dark brown color and it has a nice light brown/beige head. It has an amazing taste, a light sweet and bitter taste. Very balanced. A medium carbonization, a full body and a rather thick texture. It is overall one of the best christmas beers i’ve ever tasted.
