If the audio didn’t play you can get the very brief text summary below.

The Text Breakdown:

Visual – Funky bottle, lady dressed as santa but in a much skimpier outfit. She’s got a bag full of brew and a naughylist.  Nearly black pour with minimal head.

Aroma – Vanilla, I think I’m catching the aged oak. There’s allspice maybe.

Taste – A unique winter beer experience.  Mildly carbonated porter, less weighty on the tongue than I expected.  The beer grew on me as I made my way through it.  The flavour is complex. There is vanilla, allspice  and perhaps a slight smoky flavour which could come from the aged woodchips but there’s also a sweetness and then a slightly tangy finish which then leaves the tongue slightly numbed.  In the audio review I may not have expressed that I would buy it again, but its a curious experience and I just might want to visit this beer again.

Cheers.
