3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle) Clear, dark amber to brown colour with a short and off-white foamy head. Dark malty, slightly toasted aroma with notes of caramel, leaves and nutty accents. Mildly sweet and delicately bitter flavour, rather light bodied regarding its abv with a calm carbonation. A tad slim dark malt character with nutty and diluted molassy notes, caramel, as well as shades of spicy and delicately woody hoppy accents far in the background; quite dry sweet-bitter and slim toast-malty finish. Okay, just a tad too slim. 29.XII.16

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Durchsichtig braune Farbe, zu Beginn leichte metallische Aromen, die sich aber verflüchtigen (Temperatur?). Malzig ohne zu süß zu sein, Aromen von Kräutern, Holz und Toffee. Süffig, gut.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good looking tradiotional front with a nutcracker and gingerbread man. The beer is dark amber with a medium head. It smells nice like peach, nuts and toffee. The taste is malty, sweet and slightly hoppy. Refreshing, medium body. Good balanced sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. The finish is a bit bitter and nutty with a hint of chocolate. Very tasty.

500 ml bottle. BB 24/03/14. From kevnic2008. Thanks a lot Mariusz!
Clear deep amber golden colour with a small off-white head.
Mild aroma of dry wood, nutty sweetness and some malty sweetness. There’s quite a lot sweetness but also woody dryness in the nutty and malty flavour. Quite nice. It’s not exactly Weihnachtsfest time but it doesn’t matter... this works well.
