Bottle on January 7, 2006.
Dark color, not much at all in scent and flavor, just a boring beer that should not be called a Christmas beer per my definition. Had they called it another type of beer I might have rated it higher, but as a Christmas beer it’s just plain boring and not worth buying.

A deep red beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of berries and nuts. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and light notes of berries, leading to a dry end. The body is thin inspite of the 5.8% ABV. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
