3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown beer with a fairly frothy head and a lightly hopped aroma with a malty edge. The flavour is weak to start off with but finishes with a strong alcoholic flavour with malty undertones. Overall a reasonable Christmas biere de garde.
