dexcansino (575) - Andaluca, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2015
Mi primera cerveza de navidad de esta temporada. Sabor muy especiado y cargado, pero a su vez, sorprendentemente refrescante y compleja. El sabor es mucho mejor que su aroma. Mejor no beber muy fra. Feliz navidad!

themightylazza (108) - - DEC 21, 2015
Dark Xmas ale, the aroma is a gorgeous array of red fruit and spice. The palate is very sweet, flavours of plum and dates, a warming finish, lacking a little in spice. Pretty good.
