Bottle. Pours a deep bronze body with a medium beige, creamy head. Aroma is caramel, hints of molasses and roasted malts. Taste is caramel, roasted malts with an OK sweetness level. A quite all right Christmas beer; nothing out of the ordinary but all right for an industrial, I guess. zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a clear, orange-red body with tan foam head. Aroma of sweet sugary malts, dark fruit and maybe a hint of wine. Flavor is more of the same with a spiced cake flavor near the back of the palate. Light to medium bodied with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. This one was tasty and easy to drink. berlinoise2go (689) - NORWAY - DEC 28, 2009
