AdmiralVernon (1140) - SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2016
2012 A: Deep deep brown with a hint of red to the colour. Small white/light brown head that disappears right away. Leaves a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. N: chocolate, caramel, hint of coffee, orange peel, small hint of dates, cinnamon, tamarind T: Tobacco, coffee, some dark fruits, plum, juniper berry, O: Quite promising on the nose but disappointing taste to it... Not very properly stored though, been sitting in my refrigerator for 3 years...

Aroma of dried fruits, spices and darker bread. Taste is chocolates, raisins dry fruit notes, some tar and licorice. More complex than I thought. Really nice brew.

inbirraveritas (1552) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2015
Bottled, 500 ml. Deep dark brown/ruby one with a small beige head on it, which diminishes completely. Nose and aroma of chocolate, dried fruits and earth, mouthfeel is slick to syrupy. Relative long, earthy, dried fruity, warming finish. Enjoyable, robust brew.

Subliminal64 (152) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2015
Smells of chocolate, stout and ale aromas. Pours a dark amber colour. No head. Taste of chocolate and mild spices. Almost a mix between a chocolate stout and ale. Almost no carbonation Overall I was not disappointed. This is exactly what I would like to sip on a cold day leading up to Christmas. Will buy again. MB The Beer Bearon

Flaska frn SB. Jullsprovning med Nerikes lsllskap. Svart med tunnt brunbeiget skum som lgger sig. Sta och ltt syrliga dofter av russin, torkad frukt, mrkrost, lite ltt chark. Medelstor kropp som svller ngot i munnen. Likas gr smaken som mynnar ut i rejlt med torkad frukt, kaffe, kakao och syrlig kola.

Johnstledger8 (1105) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 6, 2015
Pours an opaque brown with a quickly fading light beige head. Aroma of caramel, sherry, earthy. Taste is of clove, cinnamon, caramel, dried fruit, sherry flavours like Christmas pudding. Light oily mouthfeel, sift carbonation.

Aromas of caramel, spices and malt. Fruity, malt and coffee flavor. More taste bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. OK beer. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
