F: bitter matyness, must, a bit oily - a very good christmas ale Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2008
(Draught) Pours beautiful deep dark red. The aroma is of cookie and caramel like malt with a hop blanket of oranges covering everything. Also some notes of sweet liquorice and chocolate. The undertones hold some notes of fruits and flowers. The flavour is clean, full and complex malty with tones of liquorice and caramel. Some notes of oranges as well. The mouthfeel is mild roasted, soft, round, smooth and full. This as good as this type of ale gets. Extremely clean without being lifeless. I like. larsniclas (7285) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2007
