3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge light beige fine-laced head over beautiful dark red body. Light aroma of caramel, roasty malts, and rubber. Taste is harmonic mix of caramel, wild berries, grain, and peppery roastiness, with some acidity. Aftertaste is watery and burnt. Not bad, but not very remarkable, either. (0.33l bottle.)

Quite watery, as these diluted Christmas beers tend to be, but among its peers it is quite all right. Not overly sweet, so it lets some maltish dryness through. Lots of caramel malt colour, looks nice in the glass.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Bottled. Copper colored with a nice beige head. Some malty aroma. Flavor isn’t much either, but some candy-fruity elements is present. Boring, and not much of a christmas beer. (051207)

330ml bottle. Dark brown. Several malts has been used. Unfortunately the body is thin and the malts does not really stand out as much as I’d like. Low bitterness, but not sweet either.
