Deutlich gewürziger Malzantrunk. Angenehme und weitestgehend konstante Intensität, minimal herb. Die Kräuternoten bleiben prägend, etwas Anis, weich. Nett! 10/9/9/9/7/9

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Dark amber-brown with a small dark off white head. Aromas of herbs, caramel malts, spice and alcohol predominate. Some light fizzyness with a sweet slickness and a full body. Mainly sweet clogging and spicey with certain bitterness developing in a pretty unbalanced way. Lasting finish.

cervmagpt (835) - PORTUGAL - DEC 10, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2016 Re-rating (2015) - Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 30C - Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 01-14. AROMA: spice aromas of cardamom and ginger, mixed with a sweet background and slight laquer notes. APPEARANCE: ambar color and hazy. initial large ivy head with very poor retention and poor lacing for the rated 8% abv. TASTE: flavour equal to the aromas (ginger) with very faint supportive malt flavours. sweet background. low bitterness with a semi-dry to dry finish. PALATE: medium to thin body with medium-high carbonation. some alcohol warmth noticeable. OVERALL: an unbalanced Christmas ale too much strong on the spices (ginger) which masks the base beer (no malt support). low body for a specialty beer.
