2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a clear dark brown one with a small islandy and sidesticking off-white top. It has a aroma with traces of ginger bread, soft cloves, caramel and some slightly salty licorice. Non-extreme, but nice enough. It has a nice average carbonation level and a slightly oily to slick mouthfeel. The taste is not as present. There is this Ajax-detergent slightly alcoholic aftertaste that’s not directly pleasant. Chocolate, some acidic old "grey" coffee. The aftertaste is not pleasant, but still not horrible. A bit chalky also perhaps. Not to Christmassy. 26.12.2012
