Dark beer, with lots of ingredients like hops, fruit, malt and herbs. Decent, but a bit unbalanced. timmwillum (92) - BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2014
Golden brown unclear color. Nose of sweetness with a bit of choko and light anis. Thick golden head that disapears quickly. Taste is bitter hops with light anis and some herpes. Not as sweet as you would expect from a Christmas beer.
