500ml bottle, appearance is opaque nearly black dark ruby red, with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, caramel, muscovado and a hint of dark chocolate and tar. Light sweetness and medium bitterness. Medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation. Quite pleasant and not as sweet as most Christmas brews.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, many thanks to djoeye. Pours a two-finger thick, fawn-coloured head slowly fading over a bright mahogany coloured body. Firm lacework. Aromas of nuts, caramel and dark leaves. Brittle caramel flavours, mid-sweet, supported by leafy hops leading to a bittersweet malty ending. Medium bodied. Not bad at all (Tromsø 28.12.2015).
