2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has spices, fruit (blueberries), malt, and pine. The appearance is deep mahogany with a small head. The flavor is not as complex. It has some spice but but it’s not sweet like I was expecting and has almost non of the other qualities besides malt. The finish is bitter. The palate is thin but somewhat smooth from carbonation. Overall it smells better than it tastes.

(Bottle) Poured dark reddish brown and quite clear. Head had light brown colour and it was quite large. Aroma was really spicy - I found at least clove, fennel and chocolate, Palate was full bodied with quie low carbonation. I expected the taste to be really spicy, too, but it wasn’t. The flavours I found were roastedness, mildly fennel, chocolate, sweetness, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste was dry and malty. The excessive dryness on the aftertaste actually spoiled this beer a bit. Still for a spiced beer this one has got good drinkability and balanced flavours.

interesting new christmas beer with a lot of taste, a good body and color. The taste is fully lasting. Unfortunently this beer is now available on bottle yet but only on tap in a few bars.

Cask, DBF 2004. Ruby red, good off white head and fine condition. Delicate fruity berries and roast Barley aromas. Full bodied and creamy in the mouth with some light raspberry or cherry notes, a touch of oakiness and more roast barley that lingers into a good powdery finish. Another enjoyable Wintercoat beer.

(BBE 3/06) Dark brown colored with red hints, little light brown head. Rich aroma with dominating chocolate and licorice, some flowery yeast also present. Medium bodied. Flavor is also licoricy with some yeasty vegetable and chocolate, mild alcohol also comes up. Aftertaste has mild chocolate with fine hops, still somehow round one. I think this misses something from flavor, ok brew though.
