3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dimmig brunröd öl med ett lättare skum. Doft av karamell, granbarr, lätt kryddighet, malt och viss fruktighet. I smaken ökar kryddigheten något utan att bli obalanserad.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Winter beer with a flamboyant colour. Rich texture, very malty. Some hints of liquorice and verbena that bring a lot of freshness. This beer has a good aging potential and will be even more enjoyable a few months after Christmas time
750ml bottle. Hazy dark amber coloured with a massive white head of rocky foam. It has a red fruit, chocolate and spiced flavour with a smooth creamy vanilla, oak, candi sugar and spicy finish. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle, shared. Dark amber colour with a fluffy, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, toasted notes, yeasts, fruits and spices. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes rather dry with yeasts, fruits and herbal earthy hops. Nice Christmas beer. The dryness help cutting trough the rich Christmas food.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rocky beige head stayed well on a very active dark brown, opaque body.
Vinous aroma, woody - almost like Barley Wine.
Very airy in the mouth. Medium to thin body. Dry on the aft.
Malty on the front with caramel, sugar, raisin & syrup. This changes on the back to a fruity, almost sour taste with red berries, earthy & slightly bitter.
Having wrote all that, it definitely a "Christmassy" taste about it but maybe I can’t describe it properly!!
Unusual, Excellent, Try It!
