COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Theres a spicy signature to this incredibly complex cockle-warming winter ale. The nose is reminiscent of raisins, dates and molasses while the palate is vinous with tannin-like notes of leather, vanilla, apricots and a hint of rustic Armagnac on the finish. An awesome after-dinner drop.

SvanteL (413) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2016
Brnstensfrgad med stort fluffigt hllbart skum. I doften massor av frukt och knck. I smaken finns en lcker fruktighet som gr ver i en lagom st knckighet, hr finns ocks en liten kryddighet och en fin liten avslutande beska. En mycket god ale, fyllig tack vare lite hgre alkoholstyrka, men kanske inte s himla julig.

TET (2837) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2016
A coppery beer, a head is quite small and blond. Aroma has sweet and dried perry fruitness, some apricot and maltyness of dry cake. Taste has sweetness of caramel and dried fruits, some drying and flowery bitterness. Medium bodied, low carbonation. slippery to drink. A very sweet with dried fruits, but still balanced. Better than I expected with some feelings of X-mas.
