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.
