Dark brown color. Medium carbonation. Aroma of spices, a beautiful yeast character, fruity, some rye, fresh baked cookies. Taste is spicy, starts sweet, finishes with some european hop character, but lightly so. Clear taste of spices, chocolate, some light acidity. Really nice and balanced. Might be the best christmas beer on the market (though Nøgne Ø Special holiday ale is in the running) arsol (1195) - NORWAY - DEC 26, 2016
