I reckon they used every spice they could get for this christmas beer. Nevertheless, it turned out very well. A rich and complex beer with a very diverse and nice taste.

Bottle at the Essen Christmas Beer Festival. Poured a cloudy golden brown with a very thin round head with no carbonation. The aroma is of fresh sticky toffee. The flavour is rich strong and alcoholic and the toffee is present here too. A lovely heart warming beer.
