Et godt julel som lett kan konkurere med de beste av de norske julelene. Et godt valg.

Svitankova (32) - UKRAINE - FEB 19, 2017
033 bottle. Pours dark copper, tan fine head, medium retention. Complex and promising aroma, malty, burnt sugar, dates, dark raisins, hints of acidity. Taste is flat cloyingly sweet, honey, sugar, no distinct notes of anything but sweetness. Aftertaste is sweet and nothing else, finishes with alcohol. ps. possibly the bottle was too old.

ForlornHope (455) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2016
75 cl bottle at home. Pours a nice red-brown colour with a white head and good lacing. Aroma of spice and stewed red fruits, also a hop aroma that reminds me of 70s keg bitter. Sweet to start and a small amount of bitterness to follow. More red fruit, clove and hint of licorice. Despite a dry finish, the overall mouthfeel was a little cloying, but not bad.
