This beer has been a Christmas tradition in the brewer's home since 1996 and was the beginning of the WinterCoat dream - and with good reason! Its dark colour has a deep, reddish glow, the fruitiness is intense, accentuated by a touch of citrus and balanced by the spiciness which the 3 types of hops contribute in glorious harmony. If only Christmas could last til Easter, as the Danes say...

Aroma is rather malty with some berries and chocolate. Flavour is spicy and malty with bread and raisins. A bit odd and too spicy, but decent anyway.
