Hermod (8654) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2017
33cl bottle, bbe 08/2018. Poured deep brown, near black with a thick off white head. Mild funky, ripe fruity, plummy aroma. Guessing the funk aint intentional but it kinda fits here. Sweet fruity, plummy, ripe fruity flavors, some spices, some warmth. Soaked raisins in finish. Warming.

huineman (740) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 25, 2017
As far as it concerns this beer being a Christmas ale, I’d say it’s pretty well brewed. Whether you like the style or not is a completely different story. It pours dark ruby with a huge, dense, tan head that lasts long. Aroma is red berries, vanilla, hot sweet wine punch. All very Christmas-y. Taste is sweetish, oily, a little boozy. Long finish with no bitterness whatsoever. Season’s greetings!

Fin (11171) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle from Eataly, Genoa consumed at home Tuesday 6th June 2017 whilst cooking Untraditional Shepherd Pies from the Pie book. This is a far more interesting beer than I was expecting, it does taste more Belgian than I thought, nice dark sugars, pleasant bitterness. Pours chestnut, good clarity, white head. Quite fruity but with a dab of spice drinks much easier than it should. A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.7
