3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep chestnut brown with slight red edges. Nice, relatively fizzy, off-white, creamy head. Lovely figs, plums, chocolate, light raspberries, hazelnuts, raisins. High carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is quite bitter, some heavy, flowery hoppiness. Lots of dark chocolate, a tad of coffee. Extremely dry, grainy finish. Some yeasty notes. A very hoppy, very dry Christmas beer. Quite different to what I’d expected. But in a good way.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a somewhat hazy cola brown with a VERY thick, it not overly persistent, light tan head. Aroma is sharp, malty, yeasty and just a little fruity. Flavor is quite strong, being yeasty and malty with an undertone of spice and more than a hint of fruit, mostly apple and pear. Texture is fizzy, tingly and rough, leaving a fruity and slightly bitter aftertaste.
